25 days of christmas: day 21


for today's countdown activity
the girls painted their very own nutcrackers


you may have noticed from this post
that we have quite the collection
my hubs and i have been collecting nutcrackers 
since our  first christmas together as a married couple
so we have acquired quite the collection!





when i saw these little guys
i knew they had to join our collection
but only after zoe and pia transformed them with a little paint!


they did quite an impressive job!
here is zoe's

and here is pia's


i think they are the nicest ones in our entire collection by far

eek! i can't believe that christmas is a mere 4 days away!
it just seems just like yesterday that i started this countdown!

are you ready for christmas? i have a few last minute things to get done
and everything needs to be done in 3 days (not 4!)
because my hub's side of the family celebrates on christmas eve

do you have your big dinner on christmas eve or christmas day?

with the bf's parents being divorced, we would run to three places in one day.. but this year will be nice. we celebrated last wkend w/ his mom, will be w/ his dad on christmas day and end the night w/ his mom's side of the family. we are celebrating w/ my family on new years eve! so glad that it's not too snowy. but of course, the one year we don't have to drive all around.

cute nutcrackers!
