December Advent

Kristin at posted recently about a family advent calendar for December she created full of meaningful and fun activities her family will do during this month. It's a great idea and you can read about it here.

I have adapted it for our family and it has been a lot of fun in the few days we've participated. What about you? Do you have any kind of advent calendar or some other way to count down until Christmas? I would love to hear about it.

Take care,

Andrew loves the "What God Wants for Christmas" box set, right now they're selling it in Walmart. But, other than that, there's no official countdown here (other than the plain old vanilla calendar). The personal advent calendar is a great idea, Julie!

Were not Christians so we just try to hold on until all the hubbub ends

We have two advent calendars by PlayMobil. One with Santa as the last gift and one with Jesus as the last. My kids take turns with the calendars. And they always want to be the one who does one in particular. Nope, not Santa. They love the Nativity advent calendar.

Sadly, we aren't doing them this year. With the new kitten, I am afraid of losing pieces.
