December 1

Today is December 1, the first day I start to open the little doors on my advent calender. My love of advent calenders started at a young age. In first grade my friend had an advent calender in her room. She never opened the doors! And what I couldn't understand was, behind each door there was a lovely piece of chocolate. So whenever I was over and she wasn't looking, I'd eat a few... just to help her catch up of course. Since then, I love to get a calender every year, sometimes with chocolate, sometimes not.

Now that I am with child and thinking about future traditions with my
child(ren), I am brainstorming ideas of making my advent calender.

I came across this cute one on the blog Sew, Mama, Sew! I could just see myself putting little treats and mini gifts and notes in each pocket.

This is adorable! I was looking on Etsy last week for an advent calendar, but I couldn't really find one that fit my decor, and was a reasonable price.

Hmmm...this story it reminding me of when you used to steal all the chocolates out of the moose track ice cream we used to buy! But, obviously, I've totally forgiven and forgotten. :) Love the advent calendar! We have one that scott's mom has passed down and the kids are finally at the age where we can involve them...no goodies in it though so I may have to change it up a bit!

we had one growing up that had a little mouse puppet that would bounce in and out of pockets as the days approached... i wonder where that is!
