beer advent calendar

Hope everyone had a great Turkey Day!  We started our day off at my grandparent’s house for strawberry waffles and mimosas, went to my in-laws for our first dinner of the day then back to my grandparents for the second and last dinner of the day.  I. Am. So. Full.  Everything was so delicious!  We’re pretty lucky to have amazing cooks on both sides of our family.  I just wish it was acceptable to run around in your underwear like Pres did all night rather than feeling like your pants are about to blow a button.  :)

We’re planning on spending today getting into the Christmas spirit.  Donuts and coffee date to start the day then we’ll be off to get our Christmas tree!  Some good friends of ours grow Christmas trees so we get the VIP treatment when it’s time to pick the perfect one.  We’ll see what Pres and her little friend Emrey choose for us. :)

Speaking of getting into the Christmas spirit… I’ve decided that an advent calendar is a MUST when you have a little one.  Pres literally asks me at least five times a day… every day if it’s Christmas yet.  I’ve been gathering some little toys and crafts for her to open each day and I’m thinking it will really help her to understand how many days we have before Santa visits.  While I was thinking of things to put in Presley’s advent calendar I got the idea of doing a beer version for Todd.  I mean, the key to having a happy husband is an ice cold beer waiting for him when he gets home, right??   Especially when he checks the mail on his way in the house and gets the credit card bill with all of the holiday shopping damage on it ;)

It’s really easy to put together and gives you an excuse to try out some winter ales.

Happy Holidays!!
