Countdown to Christmas
Counting down to Christmas is one of the most exciting traditions during our holiday season. The countdown really begins in August, but as far as I know, they don’t make advent calendars that cover five months. This year we prominently displayed our advent calendar in the kitchen.
It took only 2.2 seconds before the girls started bickering over who was in charge of moving the candy cane each day. I too remember bickering with my brother and sister over the advent calendar. We always had the paper kind where you opened a small die-cut door each day for a visual surprise. We handled our bickering kids much the same way my parents did, each kid gets a day in turn. Gaby gets even, Julianna gets odd. David also made advent chains with the girls so that each day they could tear off a ring to count down the days.
The bickering has stopped and the focus has been established. 11 Days to go!!!!
Down home friends and what they say...
