it's the most wonderful time of the year...

We love getting a real tree that smells fresh and christmas-y!! 
this is our 3rd year of getting the real tree and the kids love going and picking one out. 

We made hot wassail and cinnamon rolls & finally got our tree up and decorated!  
The kids can play for hours with the train under the tree. It has been a great distraction
since Boston was little, it's so great while i decorate the tree MYSELF! haha

{Wassail recipe at the bottom}

I made the kids a fun advent calendar with little trinkets and treats inside for each day.  Most of the items are from the dollar section at Target, Jo ann's and the dollar store.  Some days it's cute little lego christmas figurines etc...  They have loved doing this every day. 
the dates in Gold are birthdays... the twins and our daddy!
