My husband’s birthday is December 2nd, and it’s a perfect time to also pull out the Christmas decorations and start getting ready, especially since our “Christmas Countdown” is stored with the Christmas stuff, and that starts on December 1st.
My boys LOVE our candy-filled Christmas countdown calendar. I made it back in my scrapbooking days, and they really look forward to a daily treat.
This year, in addition to our countdown, we’ll also have this beautiful Advent Calendar from Dayspring. Each day includes a verse, describing a promise that Jesus fulfilled in coming, along with discussion questions. I can’t wait to get started and go through it with my husband and our boys.
Isn’t that glass just beautiful? It’s a drinking glass, but Jessica Heights gave me the inspiration to turn it into a candle holder. Beautiful!
Finally, since we were getting into the Christmas spirit, we had to do some baking. This beautiful plate from the Dayspring Love Came Down collection was just begging for some cookies!
And my boys were happy to oblige…
And, the finished product…my favorite cookies ever. We even shared some with the neighbors.
All the products featured in this post are a part of Dayspring’s Love Came Down Collection. I was given these items for review purposes, so that I could provide my honest opinion. To read other stories about these products, visit the November (In)Deals page.
The best part!!! Dayspring is generously allowing me to give away a set to one of my readers!!! So, one of you will receive the Love Came Down plate, and glasses (set of 4) you see in this post! How cool is that?!?
