6th day of Advent

This morning we put on some of my favorite Christmas music, got out all the celophane bags and ribbon and tape and other various Christmasy fun things, and went to work. We packaged up all the homemade candy so it is ready to mail or hand out this weekend. Yay! It actually took longer than I had expected, but we had so much fun doing it! Jonathan was completely happy with his very own Christmas bag, filled with little candy canes and lots of little scraps of curled ribbon. Actually, every time I cut a piece of ribbon for my own work, he needed one too.

Tomorrow we'll go buy some more ribbon. :)

Yay! Thanks for sharing your advent activities--they are lots of fun. The pictures are great ... Jonathan is a cute kid :).

Oh, and I had a question for you--I know its been a few years since you lived in the area, but do you have any recommendations for nice (and not super-expensive) wedding/reception venues in NV City? I've looked online some, but I thought there might be some spots you (and Sarah) know that wouldn't necessarily be listed online... :)

Home-made candy? Consider me impressed. :)

Great pictures!

We received our package yesterday and Emma and I had a sample a little bit ago. You all did a great job, the carmels in particular were fantastic! I've never had homemade caramels before. Thanks!
