advent calendar.

These wooden ornaments were hand-me-downs from Eric's parents.

I love how cute they are, 
and I really wanted to use them in our Christmas decor.

I combined them with star hooks from my mom,
clear plastic wall hangers, and slips of red paper.

See the wall that separates our living room from our little kitchen?

Well, now it showcases our advent calendar.

Each slip of paper has an activity for us to accomplish
so we enjoy Christmas every day of December.

So far we have done things like read Luke 2, drink hot chocolate,
write each other Christmas notes, hang mistletoe, 
and decorate these adorable mini gingerbread houses together.

We stayed up until midnight working on them.
It was awesome.
