Counting Down the Days! Paper Chain Christmas Tree and Advent Calendar


I wanted to make a paper chain for my children this year. I saw this idea on Pinterest, and quickly put one together for each of the kids while they hung the ornaments on the tree. We've already torn off the first chain (which would be between the 2 bottom chains). You can see a full one here - I just looked at her picture while assembling.


Another very special, not-new tradition is our Advent Calendar.

Ho! Ho! Ho! Time to start your Christmas shopping, if you haven't already!! Here's another GIFT ALERT for you!

We have a special Christmas Eve tradition in our house.

We shut off all of the lights, but the tree, pop in our $1 'yule log' with Christmas carols dvd, and get out a special snack (last year, it was a bucket of mini eclairs! Yum!).

Then, the kids are given one gift to open.

The gift is always a new pair of cozy jammies to wear all Christmas day.
