December is ON at the Murakamis! Here’s what we’ve been up to…
We kicked off Advent with the calendar my children cherish from Pottery Barn Kids. I bought ours long, long ago – back when my eldest was barely 12 months old; this has been a lifelong dream of mine. And it hasn’t disappointed – when I asked my kids what they were most excited for this Christmas, they said their advent calendars. While you can of course do little candies or treats, you can also throw in activities (“Make Christmas Cookies!” “Do One Nice Thing For A Neighbor!”) to up the memories made.
NEW to our holiday speal this year are “Christmas beds” (so named by my kids), also by PBK. Long story short, we put our house hunting on hold and I gave myself this bedding as a consolation prize. Honestly… it’s been a pretty good one! I am so eager to finally start making memories in a permanent home, but this bedding went a long way toward making up the fact that we have almost no space to decorate and no mantle.
They LOVED it.
We still need to get our tree and hang our stockings, but that didn’t stop us from getting our bake on yesterday!
Whew! And it’s only December 3rd!
