Advent Calender 2012

Are you guys ready for Christmas!?  The Land of Honey has been buzzing (haha) with excitement about Christmas since before the Thanksgiving dishes were washed!

This past weekend, the Z-Squad took a trip to Lutz's Tree Farm in SC and it didn't take us long to find our perfect tree.  Here are a few pics from the trip: 
 Te-Man is not so sure about this....
But he warmed up pretty quickly! :)

Looks like both the kids got a ride....

We have our regular advent calendar that we've used for the past 3 years and it's hanging on the front door just waiting for the first day to be checked off tomorrow morning! I'm betting Ze-Ra will get to put the first day up. :)

But this year, I wanted to do something special for the kids.  Not sure if you know this or not, but we are a Hive full of some nerdy bees.  Seriously - huge geeks over here. :)  Ze-Ra loves to read more than anything...I can ground her from her DS for months and hardly hear a peep, but if I ground her from reading for a day - TEARS!  

So, to have some special reading time as a family, I have been scouring the goodwills, the dollar stores, craigslist, freecycle, etc for months and I have scrounged up 24 books!  Some books are for the Te-Man and some are for Ze-Ra and some I think will just be family library books.  Each day, we'll open one book and then we'll read it (or at least of a bit of it if it's a chapter book).  Of course, I saved The Night Before Christmas for the 24th and I marked it with a special tag - but other than that, the kids get to pick which book we open when.

To top off the excitement, we are headed out to Christmas town tonight with Wiley Kat and her family for the Christmas lights and even Santa!

Merry Christmas!
