Owl Egg Timers & Advent Calendars

Owl Egg Timers & Advent Calendars

Yes, this is the cutest timer I have ever seen. His eyes are so imploring.

Jay gave me this owl timer yesterday as part of an advent calendar. He's winging it (ha) every day, but doing a pretty good (if slightly costly) job! Today I got a book of Christmas themed logic puzzles.

I LOVE LOGIC PUZZLES! AND CHRISTMAS! AND OWLS! AND ADVENT CALENDARS!

So far my advent presents to him have been a handmade ornament of our house, a coupon to make him breakfast (which I also did yesterday) and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. We are doing advent calendars instead of Christmas gifts.

I used to think that advent calendars were too much work on top of the rest of the Christmas mayhem but now I love that every day leading up to Christmas feels so special. I am definitely way more excited for him to open his presents then I am about my own. I leap out of bed in the morning and run to get them for him. Haha.

Advent aside, I had a good day today! I buckled down and painted lots, it was gorgeous outside so Finn and I could play tons of fetch and I basically ate my weight in brussels sprouts. So delicious.
