We wanted to do an advent thing with the kids so they would know how dreadfully long they have to wait until Christmas.
I thought of doing the boring old rings.
Aaron thought of making them into Santa's beard, each kid would have a strand of their own to rip off each day so they wouldn't fight over who gets to tear the ring off. Problem solved before it even happened.
The other night I brought Aaron's vision to life.
It's amazing, I know. The attention to detail is superb and the use of multiple colors just adds layers of dimension to Jolly Old Saint Nick.
And I really feel he captures the essence and portrayal of what Santa looks like after tipping back on a few too many shot glasses of eggnog.
It's okay, you can go ahead and pin this on your Christmas Pinterest board.
