Keeping the real meaning of Christmas at the center of our home can be a challenge when the media does such a great job of "selling" Christmas as a toy holiday. December 1st, brings so many things to our home..with the countdown to Christmas being the most exciting, for the kiddies! We have 7 advent calendars this year!
(two I did not even put up this year)
Let each generation tell its children of Your might acts. Psalm 145:4
Zachary has his Lego Advent Calendar - Star Wars theme this year.
(always shuts his eyes...lol)
This is a new one from Avon. It lights up and can be used each year.
These are from Dayspring and I love them!
They have picture surprises and a piece of the story of Jesus each day.
Each girl has one. Love the fact that they have magnets on the back also.
I bought these on last years clearance at Dayspring and held on to them.
Originally $ 7.99, think I paid $ 1.00
Also each child has one of the fun chocolate behind each window
advent calendar. Compliments of our great friend, Miss Meg.
These are for after lunch time!
Looking forward to a fun filled Christmas weekend with our town tree lighting, breakfast with Santa, Tree Party (we have brunch and then all go to get our trees at a local farm - lots of families involved), pageant rehearsal and then lunch at Bubby's to see her tree and a few treats!
