I love Christmas, the excitement, build up, anticipation, decorating, family time together, creating, baking and most of all giving. We use an advent calendar each year to give a gift or little note to the kids. Perhaps it’s not the traditional way an advent calendar is used however it’s how we have the most fun and joy with it.
Tomorrow I will share with you what we place in our advent calendar, but today I thought I would show all the different choices and options are available for you to use, purchase or create yourself.
