I’ve been battling a stomach bug for the past couple of days so this post is a far cry from what it originally was intended to be since I am typing it on my phone while laying in bed. Oh well!
With just a little over a week left until Christmas our house is fully decorated for the holidays. It’s so much fun to get all the decorations out every year and transform the house into a winter wonderland. This year we had a new advent calendar to display.
I found it last year on Amazon.
I wanted a Nativity scene that our children could play with and look forward to every day. Which meant it had to be well made and durable. I have not been disappointed so far. It lives on our kitchen counter where Noah likes to sit while I am in the kitchen. She loves coming down every morning and opening a new box. All the figures are magnetic which keeps her occupied and makes for some pretty interesting scenes. Right now I’m pretty sure all the cattle and sheep are floating high in the sky above the north star and angel! We talk about each figure that she pulls out and I know she will be excited on Christmas eve when she pulls out baby Jesus because she has gotten used to seeing him in the manger in her books and dvds.
The advent calendar has a little company on our counter.
I made sure to put cookies in there from day one but that’s sort of a dangerous idea for this little cookie monster!
Do you have a special advent calendar you put out every year to celebrate the “arrival”of Christ?
