Advent thingy

This year, I am really feel'n the Christmas spirit. I am genuinely SO excited about it, Christmas music on all the time, writing letters to santa, remembering Christmases from the past...just whole lotta magical things up in here.

And So, being the christmas spirit, I made an activity advent calendar...thingy.
I was going to copy my friend Celeste, and make THIS ONE.
But then, I didn't.
Just tossed them all into a bowl so the girls have to dig around to find the right day.
Inside each little package is: 
  • a Christmas activity
  • a Christ centered (scripture got the list from HERE)
  • their vitamins for the day
Want to copy?? Its never too late yo.
