Countdown to Christmas 2012

I can't believe we are just days away from December!
I think . . . YES, I'm quite positive . . . December is our favorite, favoritest month of the year.

Several years ago I made an Advent Calendar.  Each day in December, the girls find a slip of paper in a pocket ~ a surprise outing, activity, or craft for the day.  We keep it very simple {and mostly free!}, and the girls love it. 
If you are looking for something fun to do with your kiddos, look no further. 
I'm going to start a list of some ideas, and please feel free to add some of your own ideas in the comments.  We're always looking for new ideas :)
Here we go:
3.  Bake a Birthday Cake for Jesus
4. Make Sparkly Snowflakes to hang from the ceiling

Now, I know I haven't been the world's greatest blogger lately.  But, I am going to attempt a weekly link up for Countdown to Christmas.  Let me know if you're interseted!!

I'd really like to link up. I have been planning some activities for Abby. I'm thinking I'll link up after we complete the activities, so there is pictures. When do you think you'll start the countdown?

Yup, I am doing this. I've been thinking of what I want to do starting Dec. 1 to truly make it more meaningful. I love the easy crafts and suggestions, thanks for the inspiration, I am not crafty so that cupcake liner tree is right up my alley. I definitely want to add in some service projects, I'll have to think some more on that one.

Love these ideas! I really should do something extra this year as otherwise it is easy just to get busy and not really enjoy the season.
