Let the Festivities begin...

Well, it's December. Can you believe it? Where has the year gone? Today is the first day of my advent calendar. We just put it up and the kids are so excited.  This is a new idea...a little different than last years Advent calendar...you can check it out here. I went on Pinterest and got some ideas and this is what I came up with. The cool thing about this calendar is that there aren't any presents or candy, like most advent calendars. Each day there is an activity to do together...like sipping hot cocoa, reading books, looking at Christmas lights or singing Christmas carols. It really brings everyone in for the season and to remember why we even celebrate the season. It was such a big hit from last year, so I couldn't let this one go. I just love creating these memories for the kids...and I hope to see them continue with their kids.
