This post contains so much that it might explode.
I just want to make sure you are ready for December.... I am about to burst with happiness I am so excited that this month is almost here! Here are some of my favorite December posts from the past
(no surprise that they are almost ALL treats)....
The easiest advent calendar you will ever make....just a little string of envelopes counting down the days until Christmas. All you need is festive paper, mini clothespins, string, and a brain full of Christmasy ideas. Each day your Littles choose a note from inside the envelope to see what they will do today to count down to Christmas. We do simple things like read a Christmas book, sing Christmas songs, have a Christmas treat, watch a Christmas movie......or bigger things like go on our annual Christmas date, decorate cookies, or make our annual gingerbread house.

Brussels Sprouts-one of our favorites!
If you wrinkle up your nose when you think about brussels then you are making them wrong.
Lots of ways to eat them, including sauteed with bacon, avocado and lime, HERE.
Pomegranates are pretty and festive, and we love them in everything.
How to prepare and eat them HERE.
Let's move on to the treats....I need to go run 30 miles up a mountain just looking at these.
I was always so intimidated when it came to candy making.....and then we tried toffee and it will now be a yearly tradition for Robby and I to make. Recipe HERE.
Black and White Popcorn.
Easy and quick and perfect for gift giving. Recipe HERE.
