Advent Calendar Round Up!

Tis the Season for Advent Calendars!
Oh, how I love the advent calendar. The countdown to Christmas is one of my favorite memories from childhood and I've always made it a special treat each year for my own children. Counting down day by day seems to extend this wonderful season and it's spirit of giving just a little bit longer. My kids talk about it for at least a month before we hang it up and that first day when they come down the stairs and see it is always so much fun.

With so many wonderful ideas out there for advents, I thought I'd share a few with you. Advents can be a simple as a few numbered stickers on envelopes or as detailed as tiny little crafting works of art. Make your own or buy one that will last for years to come..... your children will LOVE it!
