Here’s the Diehl

Last year I was a tad bit too late on buying the advent wreath that I wanted, so this year I am on top of things and getting ready to go for the Christmas season!  I found this amazing site from a friends blog and immediately knew that I wanted to get this Advent tradition going in our family using her advent calendar.  She even sent me a list of what she used last year in the envelopes.  How awesome was that!  Most of my work is done!

 I’m going to hang mine along our wood wall and it is going to look so good!  Now we’ll just have to come with a system for who opens which ones, because you know the kids will fight over it!

 The package comes with envelopes for each day, string, and cute little clothes pins.  She literally includes everything you might need, and all you have to do is fill the envelopes.  This is exactly how I do things.  I could never do this because I’m not crafty and don’t have the time, but she has done all the work for me!

I have also stressed about how I would fill all those dates without knowing what might be going on in our lives on that particular date and a friend gave me a great idea!  She said to print them all out and keep them handy and plan each day the night before.  That way you know exactly what you can do for advent the next day and you can fill in that envelope at night before you go to bed.  I love my smart friends!

Another thing that I fell in love with at her shop were these amazing headbands for little babies.  How precious is this?  Oh my word.  If you know someone pregnant with a little girl, this would make an amazing shower gift!

And look at these for bigger girls.  Just plain precious.  Everything about it.

Oh my word.  I can’t handle the cuteness of that sweet little headband on that cutie pie of a baby.  Perfect baby gift people.
