12 Days of Christmas and Other Fun Things

12 Days of Christmas

This year I thought it would be crazy  fun to do a “12 Days of Christmas” for my incredible hubby.  He’s been working so hard for our family and taking care of us all, I wanted to do something to show him how much I love him and what he means to me. So Tuesday night I wrapped everything/finished creating things, and put it under the tree. (Need some ideas or an explanation? Check out Passionate Homemaking.)

Today was the first day. He opened his gift this morning.

On the 1st day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

(on the left is a poem I found in the comments section of Passionate Homemaking explaining the 12 days) and on the right is a manly pipe pouch I found at Pottery Barn (it’s actually a cosmetics bag, but it works great for the pipe and tobacco!)

I also wanted to share with you a little something my hubby did for me for Christmas! He made a homemade advent calendar, filled with love notes and traditions/things for us to do together or as a family!

He hung it on the wall of our hallway (half on one side and half on the other.) It’s been so fun reading them everyday and discovering what we might be doing!

And for your viewing pleasure, a snapshot of  “the destructor”. Don’t let the smile fool you. He’s trouble!
