Last year we started a new tradition in counting down the days till Christmas.  The whole purpose is to make sure we are connecting in this busy season and remembering why we are celebrating.  This year we made our countdown from toilet paper rolls the kids painted and stickered. I saw this idea last year and copied it. Here is our finished product.

Each day has an activity for us to do as a family. This year, our schedule is a bit different as Thursdays Mike works late. So the girls and I set off to make cookies last night as a treat for daddy when he got home.
Stinky Pete, as usual, is fabulously dressed for the occasion. 

This is a long standing tradition with Meema, smashing cookies and adding sprinkles. 


Some of our other Advent activities include some new things this year like building a snow man and ice skating. We are loving experiencing a real winter here! I LOVE this advent calendar. We may try to make it next year, and here is a good idea list if you need some help to get the creative juices flowing.  Happy counting!
