In each bag is a little red piece of paper. Every other day, there is also a little green piece of paper. The red papers tells the activity for the day. The green ones tell which part of the Christmas story we will learn about that day. Some of the green papers coincide with the red ones. I was particular about which activities landed on certain days since I don't always have a hubby in the evenings. A lot of the activities we do when my oldest boy gets home from school.
I swipped some of my ideas from other websites online. Then others came from our own family traditions, or things I have been wanting to do.
The kids have loved doing this advent calendar! Even my husband gets excited about what each activity is going to be. I am so glad I made it!

Well, my little princes, Carlie had a birthday in November too. I began to make her a "Princess" card and saw this cute frog. Once I added it I then realized I couldn't give her this card as it was perfect for Jeffery to give to her. I called him up and told him I had a card for him he could give to Carlie for her birthday. He was thrilled! Jeffery is not one for shopping! For Carlie it is all about bling. She was not disapointed.
The funny story about this card is that for once I made and mailed Emily her birthday card so she actually recieved it BEFORE her birthday. She called with excitement and much anticipation only for me to tell her she couldn't open it until her birthday. Carefully she placed it in a safe place. When it came to open the card was gone and worse, no where to be found. She went thought the trash and cleaned the house, no card. Just the other day nearly a month after her birthday she called me with jubilation the card was found... up in the top of a closet with the wooden puzzles! What do they say... good things happen to those who wait!
