Twenty Four Days Till Christmas Day Advent Calendar

Last night we pulled out all our Christmas boxes and decorations and I found our Advent calendar.  We had bought it from Starbucks last year and ate a special candy a day and then flipped the box over to have a Christmas scene completed by the 24th of December.

I found a picture of it online at laurabloom and it's the same one.   So now that it's not filled with candy I decided last night to write 24 things that we can do and each day we'll pull one out and complete the task.  Here is the list if you'd like to be creative too.

December 1st - Go play HORSE basketball with the family.
December  2nd - Take a nice bubble bath.
December  3rd - Have Hot Chocolate as a family.
December 4th - Give a gift to your favorite charity, get your goodwill bags ready to drop off.
