Advent Countdown

I had been seeing a lot of people doing an Advent calendar or an Advent countdown and I wanted to do that with my little ones this year. I love starting traditions for my sweet family.
I found an excellent blog that had cute ideas and cute print outs for what I wanted to do.

I didn't do the exact one like she did but I did use her print outs and made goodie bags and wrapped books up all with a number.

Here is a list of what we are doing in our count down to Christmas!
  1. Going to see Christmas lights on the river.
