Gingerbread Advent Calendar

Well thankfully, the cold I had passed rather quickly.  I pretty much feel normal today.  Well, normal for me!  Ha, ha, ha! 

We just had some bad storms go through our area but I think those are done now too.  Strong winds and lots of rain but like I always say, better rain than snow!

I wanted to share something my mom made for a friend.  This labor of love is the most gorgeous Advent Calendar I've ever seen:

Isn't this amazing!  The gingerbread men and the little trees are made out of felt.  The little faux candies came from Hobby Lobby.  Real mini candy canes go in the little pockets.  Mom and I spend a few hours just playing and arranging the candies to make sure it all looked good.  I'm going to see if I can get mom to make one for the shop next year.  I just think this is too cute!

I'll leave you for this evening with a rare photo of Lucy, Wrigley and Cotton all sleeping on the sofa together:

I hope this means that Lucy is starting to warm up more to the babies.  But until I see this happen a few more times, I won't hold my breath!

Your mom has a winner with this one! It's so sweet and I love all the little details (I embiggened the picture so I could see it better!). Wonder who curled up on the sofa first?
