    Did anyone else crack open an advent calendar yesterday? The Lawson household stepped up to the plate yesterday and started working on a few:

    1. Cheese - Obviously, this caused the most competition between spouses. 
    2. Wine - This is one for the wife.
    3. Beer - This was for me, day 1 was a Pear Apple seltzer and it was quite lovely. I may have had day 2 also...I'm not good.
    4. Shortbread Cookies? - I don't know who cursed us with this, but if you don't know what shortbread cookies are, I like to think of them as sand. So yeah, I have 25 days of sand to look forward to.
    What did you wind up with?

    Cheers!

    Most excellent! I cannot wait to breakout the Christmas Vacation DVD. Yes, DVD!

    I feel like I need to see a picture of this lamp. Our decorations are still in various boxes on various floors, waiting for their moment to shine.

    On a personal and advent calendar related note, I'm having a great Friday, because I have a friend that loves shortbread cookies, so I was able to offload...ehr...I mean "gift" the shortbread calendar to her. Let the real celebrations begin.

    We're big Lego fans over here and have three different varieties of Lego advent calendars going - Harry Potter for my husband & I, and Star Wars and Friends for the kids. Lots of excitement all around.

    Good gravy! That's 25 days worth of winning right there.

    Please keep us informed on what everyone's favorite Lego is! Right now, the most memorable item that we've had is a piece of Red Pesto Gouda...I don't think a picture of the wrapper does it justice.

    @Emily Kammerer, I forgot to mention, thanks for bringing the one advent calendar where assembly may be required! Until now, my title for post was pretty deceptive.​
