The advent calendar is up.
I try to mix it up with the activities we do as a family.
Some are religious, some are of service, and some are just plain fun.
For day 1, we watched A Charlie Brown Christmas on video and put up our own Charlie Brown Christmas Tree.
By Christmas, I am usually exhausted and have grown so tired of the daily activities.
But, I know we are creating some wonderful memories for the kids.
If you have any great ideas, let me know.
(I don't decide what we'll do until the night before ☺)
