It all started in 2009.

Christmas Tree + Advent Calendar 007

This year I printed a calendar to try to do the more time consuming things on the weekend + the easier things on the week days.  Plus, we had to schedule around a few things ;)

Christmas Tree + Advent Calendar 022

This year I ordered a download from Draw Pilgrim!  You're supposed to make them into match boxes, but I really just wanted to cut them + write the activity on the back + stick into the pockets of our advent calendar.  I've been using the same advent calendar since I was little.  My mom would always put hershey kisses in the pockets :)
