{Activities Advent Calendar}

December 04, 2013

This season is so special, and I love everything about it…The twinkling lights that line the streets, the joyful sounds of the Bing Crosby Christmas albums, the sweet smell of the Frasier Fir trees, the classic Christmas Specials that play on TV, but most importantly, I love the wonderful family traditions that remain so true and strong year after year.  My parents always made Christmas so magical, and every time the holidays roll around, I get so sentimental thinking about how perfect and thoughtful every detail was about Christmas with my family.

Now that we have a little one of our own, I plan on instilling the same traditions into her life and making Christmas as magical for her as it was for me.  I'm sure we'll be starting a few new traditions, but I can't wait to build on the beautiful foundation from my childhood.

One of the many things I remember about the month of December was the Advent Calendar that was always hanging in my house.  I got so excited when my parents would put it up, and I just loved pulling my little piece of chocolate out with each passing day.  It's really the little things that mean so much and make a lasting impact on someone, so I definitely want to continue that tradition with my little Kate.
She's a little too young for one this Christmas, but I saw this great idea and wanted to pass it along to all of you.  It's not too late to display an Advent Calendar in your house, and this one filled with activities would be such a fun holiday tradition.

Enjoy, and Happy Holidays!!
