Hello and Merry Everything!   For the 25 days leading up to Christmas we are doing our own version of an Advent Calendar.  I wanted to get this post out early so you could prepare before December 1st.  We are so excited to start!

Here’s the idea… purchase or make your own advent calendar – there are SO many out there!  The one I purchased is from Target (duh) for $29.99.   Then come up with a list of 25 special activities (one per day) you can do to celebrate the season of giving!
