Happy Advent, happy December 2nd, and here's our Advent calendar this year. I hodgepodged the idea for this years' off pinterest. Whatever did we do before pinterest?  I know what I did. I got more sleep. 

Last year I woefully realized that when we moved to California we had left behind all our beloved ornaments; ours are the sentimental kind, from the travel mementos we hunt down everywhere we go to the 'Bride-to-Be 2003' to the 'Just Married 2004.' And of course now Mila's teeny footprints to grace our tree (and soon, Dani's!). Taking them out of the box each year is like reuniting with dear and familiar friends and how I missed my friends last year. Terribly. The candy canes just didn't cut it. 

This year Marmousch brought with her few of our favorite ornaments. Hi old friends! Inside each muslin bag on the advent calendar is one of our ornies for Wugs to hang on the tree.

Thank you thank you Marmousch for hanging up the entire thing Friday night while I bossed out instructions from the couch as I fed my newest sweetheart. Speaking of which, I wrote this entire post with one hand while NAKing (nursing at keyboard). I've missed this!

Last year's advent calendar, and one of my favorites, from 2009.
