Visit Irvine Park!

Get to Irvine Park in Chippewa Falls this holiday season! Your kids will love cozying up in the car: pajamas and slippers are a must; and going to view the holiday lights display at Irvine. If the kids are old enough, treat them to their own little travel mug of hot chocolate or apple cider - this is a tradition they are sure to love!

Hint: December 12th is "walk through" when no cars are allowed. You can pull your kids on a sled, push a stroller, or just run in the snow!

Being (Un)Crafty - Felt Advent Calendar

I am really not very crafty. In fact, I consider myself best at really "uncrafty" projects like this one. I saw this cute advent calendar in a catalog and decided I could create one to make the countdown to Christmas a little more exciting. Its all made of felt, glue, and some other adhesives - no sewing or fancy stuff like that. Let me know if you want more info on how I created this little gem...oh...and if you have any great ideas of what to fill it with for my two year old!
