Day 1

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 ☺)

Some of our favorite traditions include: Decorating a little tree at the cemetery (sounds weird but gets us all thinking about Grandpa Harvey), having a picnic inside since it's too cold outside, reading a Christmas story outside by the fire pit. The hard part is finding the time to fit all the traditions in during the quick month!
