Your Advent ~ Calendar – Day 24 πŸŽ…πŸΌπŸŽ„πŸ•―

Hello my lovely friends 😍 Happy Christmas Eve!

The last door! And what a beautiful one it is! Let’s see what’s hiding behind it…

It’s the Christmas Star 🌟

The ‘National Geographic’ sent a photographer to Alaska to capture this historic, amazing event. 🌟

To the right you can catch a glimpse of the beautiful Northern Lights!

Well, this is it! Christmas is here πŸ˜ŠπŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸΌ Thank you so much for joining me for this daily countdown to Christmas Day πŸ’– I hope you enjoyed the journey. I know I did!

Have a very merry, safe, peaceful Christmas! πŸ₯°

Your Advent ~ Calendar – Day 23

Hello my lovely friends 😍

Behind today’s door I have a delicious surprise waiting for you!

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies πŸ˜‹ I think Santa will be very happy tonight!

You can find the recipe for these yummy treats here .

A few tips:

– If you use a Standmixer, use the dough hook for the last step (mixing the wet and dry ingredients). Just trust me on this πŸ˜‰

– The dough gets very sticky after a few minutes out of the fridge. So you have to work fast or hire a few helpers. I didn’t do neither, so I had to scrape dough from my hands with a knife πŸ˜…

– I bakes the cookies for about 13 minutes. The texture is more on the crunchy side…but not quite. I hope that makes sense πŸ™ƒ

– I rolled them in granulated sugar, since I didn’t have powdered sugar…and didn’t want to join the crowds at the grocery store today 😏 But the author mentions that her Mom rolls them in granulated sugar. And what’s good enough for Mom, is good enough for me. 😊

Thank you for stopping by and I hope that you’ll be back for the opening of the last door! πŸŽ„

Your Advent ~ Calendar – Day 21 πŸŽ…πŸΌ

Hello my lovely friends 😍

So apparently I’ve been trailing behind the actual calendar days πŸ™ˆ How long has that been going on? πŸ˜… I guess we’ll be opening 2 doors tomorrow πŸ˜‹

But first things first…today’s – eh, yesterday’s – door

Wanna talk Christmas Carols? 🎢

Do you have a favorite? Which one makes you reach for the skip/off button on your listening device?

I go first 😁

Favorite is a tough choice πŸ€”

I’ll go with (for every day listening) –

‘I need a little Christmas’ by Johnny Mathis

and

‘Ugly Christmas Sweater’ by the-one-and-only Garth Brooks 🀠

Those two make me dance around the house every time!

For Christmas Eve –

Silent Night – I don’t have a favorite artist there πŸ•―

Now – which one makes me scramble to the skip/off button?

That’s easy…‘Santa Baby’ – I truly can’t stand listening to that one! I think this song is everything that Christmas is not/should not be about! πŸ˜•

So, that’s my list 🎢🎢🎢 I’d love to hear your carol choices! πŸ₯°

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you’ll be back for the opening of the remaining doors (remember…2 tomorrow πŸ˜‰)

I personally was glad to hear it! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•πŸ•―

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you’ll be back for the opening of the remaining doors. πŸ₯°

Your Advent~Calendar – Day 14 πŸŽ…πŸΌ

Hello my lovely friends πŸ₯°

Sorry this is a tad late. I’m having a little trouble in the energy/motivation department. But, never mind that – we’re all here now, so let’s open this door 😊

Door #14 hid a beautiful Poinsettia 😍

And some great tips all around the gorgeous plant from country living.com* , like how to pick the perfect plant, how to care for them…who knew they need so much water 😳

Your Advent~Calendar – Day 12 πŸŽ…πŸΌ

Hello my lovely friends 😍

Another exciting Saturday night in our house πŸ˜… So let’s open Door #12…I have a feeling that whatever we find will be put to good use tonight πŸ˜‰

A pretty mug to hold your favorite hot beverage while binging the Christmas movies. And what will that be? Hot Chocolate, Coffee, mulled wine?

Do you have a favorite Christmas movie? πŸŽ„

I do like a few of the newer Hallmark Christmas movies, but my absolute favorite is ‘White Christmas’ πŸŒ¨β„οΈπŸŒ¨ I watched it whenever it was on. No matter the time of day πŸ˜… So you can imagine my delight when I found out that it’s on Netflix! At least now I can somewhat control the time and frequency. πŸ™ƒ

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope that you will be back for the opening of the remaining doors! πŸŽ…πŸΌ

Your Advent~Calendar – Day 11 πŸŽ…πŸΌ

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Happy Weekend-Eve! 😎 Let’s see what surprise is behind Door #11…

Some fabulous Christmas crafts! I love the floating-ornaments decorations!

Last year I tried my hand at one, and am pretty happy with it. I do wish I had used a longer fork – oh well, too late now πŸ™ƒ It still looks kinda floaty, so I’m happy 😁

Happy crafting! πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’ll join me for the opening of the remaining doors. πŸŽ…πŸΌ
