I could honestly get lost for hours looking for one thing one Pinterest….. search for one idea and an hour later you’re learning how to wrap lettuce around tiny carved carrots as appetizers for your pet rabbit.

I don’t even remember what I was searching for but I saw this great idea for a count down calendar until the big fat (genetically not slim) man drops by to eat some cookies and drop off coal.

So my son and I got some cardboard and started drawing up what we thought it would look like because like so many other ideas on Pinterest there where no instructions.


An hour or so later we were armed with a drill and jigsaw, a pile of wood and good intentions….. no one was hurt and amazingly the idea actually worked.

While he napped I painted it and by the time he was awake I was ready for a sleep but the snowman we had seen on Pinterest was completed. Now all that is left is to wait for our coal to be delivered and our cookies to disappear in the middle of the night.
