It's never too late to Advent

I wanted to do something to count down to Christmas but didn't have time to think of a cute idea. So I stole this entire idea from this lady. If you don't read her blog you should she is very inspiring. Mine was 100% free. I looked up vintage Christmas wrap like she suggests. Sized them all to 5x5, printed, and cut out. Me and David thought of all the Christmas activities we wanted to do before Christmas, wrote them on little pieces of paper, scrambled them up, and put them in their individual envelopes. One for reach day. We open one every morning before leaving for school. It's perfect and it makes the living room look that much more festive. It's been so fun having a Christmas activity to do every night after a long day before school. And it makes it possible for us to do all the festivities we wanted to do.

Some of our ideas include:
-Watch a Charlie Brown Christmas
-Go caroling with friends
-Make a snowman
-Read the Christmas Story
-Bake cookies
