Countdown to Christmas 2011


Oh my goodness, people.  How can it be December 1st already??  How? 
December totally snuck up on me this year.  And I'm not all that prepared.

But I'll get there.

The past two years I've blogged about our Countdown to Christmas.
We plan a special outing, activity, or craft for each day in December.  I make little notes that I've numbered 1-24, and each day I stick one, outlining our activity for the day, in a corresponding pocket of our "Advent Tree". The girls LOVE it.  And I love it too.  We like to celebrate the whole month! 


Today, we will be making our Hershey's Countdown.  Want to make your own?  Check out how here :)
Enjoy this special time.  Another year will be upon us before we know it!

{Interested in sharing your favorite holiday crafts, activities, or recipes??  Come back next Thursday, the 8th, and we'll link up!  I can't wait to see what y'all are up to!}

This is such a cute idea!! There was one year when Lexie was littler that we watched a Christmas movie every day of December until Christmas. She loved it!!! I wish we could still do that now. :o/

I should do the countdown, except with Reese's for Abby. She loves those!

Today's activity is to put do the outside Christmas lights.
