Well, Thanksgiving is only a couple days away…and since it’s early this year, it does give some hope for those of us who are feeling like there’s just not enough time to get all the Christmas shopping started or the decorations hung! I love it when we have those extra few days after the feast is over rather than the years when December 1 seems to be the day after Thanksgiving! And since we have those extra days in our back pocket, we also still have time to put together a Christmas advent calendar…something that’s been a tradition in our home since the boys were little! It’s such a fun way to count down the days to Christmas by unwrapping a little trinket each morning! And even though my boys are getting older, I don’t think that’s any reason to stop the festivities…who says the fun has to end when you grow up? So let me share how I’m preparing our advent this year, and I hope you can find some inspiration for yours…there’s still plenty of time!
