Our First Advent

We have been here in GA a little over a year now and will probably be here at least 1 more, so I am trying to start a couple of new family traditions while we are 'settled'.  The Crazies are now 8, 5, & 1 so I wanted us to do the Advent countdown this year.  I saw this cute idea over at It is what it is and thought it was the one for us.  We are not putting up our big tree this year (I know, boo me) because we are traveling some and Little Miss M is into EVERYTHING!  I can just see her pulling the whole thing down.  So, we have our mini trees out and fun things hanging from ceiling...and I loved this idea because I could hang it on the wall for more decoration.  She even gave us the free printable, how easy is that!  Seriously, go check out her fabulous blog!

Here is how ours turned out...and the kids are loving it!  Skater boy is even keeping up with each day and they love getting the bag off the wall.  Thank you - It is what it is- for making this an easy Advent project.
