We have done advent calendar's in the past, but they have been edible! This year, following a good friend's lead, we are doing activities every day leading up to Christmas. We got a great advent calendar last year and it has 25 pockets. It has been so fun. Gavin pops out of bed every morning and heads straight to the calendar to see what we are doing for the day. I didn't have it together the first day, so I only had the first's day's paper in the calendar. He asked me why there weren't paper's in all the pockets. I told him that they appear magically each day. That has really added to the mystery and excitement. Here is a look at our first couple of weeks!
Day 3-Watch a Christmas Movie and eat caramel popcorn .. We watched Frosty the Snowman
Day 4-Make paper snowflakes
Day 6-Get Christmas Tree and decorate it!

Day 9- Do something nice for someone else..Gavin helped a friend find her boot and Eli helped Gavin do something, but I can't remember.
Day 10-Watch a Christmas Movie and eat popcorn-- The boys watched Rudolph. It was also the day of Gavin's Holiday Concert at school!
