Advent Calendar

I have an advent calendar that I made; each day we open a jar which has a scripture, a name for Christ, and a Christmas activity. I've found this is a great way to really feel like it's Christmas all month long.

This day's activity was to decorate a gingerbread house. We bought the coolest pre-assembled gingerbread house at Costco, that I even got Evan to participate!
Thad discovering his tongue (he managed to eat way more candy than Dallin somehow..)
 The final product!

Yes, it is December and Dallin has his shirt off. This is normal in our house...!

Okay - so I am reading old posts since I haven't been on here in awhile. You'll have to share your advent calendar with us. What a fun thing! I LOVE the magnets - did you make them? (Sure you did, Crafty Lady.) Well, you'll have to elaborate on your tradition. When you have time of course...after baby and all. LUCK and LOVE to you with that!
