advent calendar

When we got home from Arizona on Sunday evening I went to check our mail. My sister Jenna told me that she sent our Christmas present early this year and that we had to open it ASAP. I had no idea what to expect but it was SUCH a wonderful surprise!!!!!!!! My mom made an advent calendar a loooong time ago and I've grown up with this calendar every Christmas since I can remember. My sister Jenna made a pattern for it last year and made one for her own little family, and for this Christmas made one for Aaron and me! We are sooooo excited for this and I can't WAIT to get the rest of those ornaments up!!! I couldn't believe it and this was probably one of the best gifts I've ever gotten! Isn't this the coolest advent calendar you've ever seen?! THANKS JENNA!!!!!!!!

And we set up our little Christmas tree last night--another thanks to Jenna for giving that to us when they moved. Still working on getting some ornaments for the REAL tree. :) Less than 2 weeks of classes left...eek!
