Yesterday I had the idea to make an advent calendar. I didn't have a lot of time, and this is what I came up with. The kids are already walking in circles around the fireplace :) In the bags I put little surprises, sweet treats and a small verse from the Bible. I saw the idea of the Bible verses on Facebook and I really liked it.
It's always fun to see the smiles on your child's face when they open the gifts. The kids find this an easy way to countdown til' Christmas. As they open more gifts, the excitement builds up until Christmas Day!
