Who doesn’t love the month of December?!? With all the anticipation for the big event and the celebrations leading up to it, even my inner child is jumping for joy – or maybe that’s the sugar talking. Regardless, December brings with it many traditions that I remember as a kid, and can now pass onto my own child, like the infamous advent calendar.
As a kid, I was so excited to get chocolate everyday, and open the little windows to see which chocolate I got, and even more excited when I missed the day before and got to have TWO, mmmm chocolate – the breakfast of champions! Now that I’m a parent I can see a bit of a down side to providing even MORE chocolate/candy/sugar to my overly active two year old. I figure why not leave that for the grandparents to dish out, since that seems to be in their job description.
This year we are introducing a Crafting Advent Calendar, and even though it may not have chocolate inside, I think it will still provide a nice tradition to share in our family. So, here is a sneek peek at our advent calender, and I will do my best to show you updates of each day’s craft or activity (like that’s even remotely possible as a busy mom), I will do my best.
Hope you have a fun month too!
