next week is christmas...i'm in big trouble.
i have quite a few things things left on my to make list
meanwhile we have been enjoying a new tradition...
opening one little envelope each night from our advent calendar.
this is the first year that we have actually had an advent calendar and it will hopefully stay with us every year.
it has been super simple things that we would have probably done without our calendar,
but the calendar has made it a little more exciting...
hot chocolate with marshmallows
making candy-cane reindeers
watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas
reading a christmas book
making paper chains...
it has also been a good visual to see how many more days until christmas
i love traditions and i hope the kids will look back and have great memories of our advent calendar activities
making the calendar was a little last minute so i just made simple little envelopes out of brown craft paper and stamped the numbers with paint.
i went a little crazy with the sewn envelopes this year...i will share a little more this week.
