Countdown to Christmas

Our little family loves Christmas traditions! Last year, we started something new. We purchased an advent calendar personalized with our family name and hung it on a wall in our living room. Rather then fill the daily slots with candy or treats, we chose to fill them with tiny pieces of paper featuring various Christmas activities.  Each morning, Noah (our little one) moves the candy cane to the correct date and removes the paper. We are always excited to find what that day will bring! Some of our favorites include making cookies with Mommy, coloring Christmas pictures, making snowman pancakes, watching a Christmas movie, making hot chocolate or wearing Christmas PJs. I think my husband and I enjoy this tradition as much as Noah does!
