Countdown to Christmas 2013!

This is our favorite time of year!!
 I can't believe Thanksgiving is now behind us, and we are staring straight into December!
 My goodness this year has passed by in a flash.

If you've been around here awhile, you know that I organize a Countdown to Christmas each year
 for my four girly girls.

Many years ago I made a Countdown Tree:

Advent Calendar 2

We love ours, but I've seen some super cute ones on Pinterest as well :)

And each day they pull a special card from a numbered pocket to find out what our fun holiday activity will be for the day.


Some days we actually make it out of the house {if you know Taylor you realize what a feat that is}.
But mostly we plan crafts, baking, and other activities at home.
Most everything is little to no cost; pretty much a necessity for us the last couple of years.

Over the next few days I'll try to post fun activities you may enjoy with your littles.
Sierra and Makenna are getting older now, but I think they have at least as much, if not more fun than my two little ones. 

 What fun holiday traditions do you all have?

So fun! I printed off my little tags for our countdown. I am also doing a bible verse countdown chain with Abby.

All of our regular traditions are going to have to be altered a bit now that we're in London, but that's okay because it gives us a chance to make new ones, too!

I love the idea of pulling a special card out of the calendar every day! Lexie would not be able to contain herself and would secretly pull all the cards out and read them before the day! :o)

Yay! I love hearing what others are doing so I can copy them...;)
I need to get working on fun stuff too. I cannot find our elf on a shelf...he played me this time!

What a good idea to have fun things to do every day too. We have a countdown calendar but it is just that. This is a great time of year
