Advent Calendar 2012

Between all of the other things I have on my plate I still wanted to find time to do a cute advent calendar with the boys.

Guess what?  I totally took the easy route.  I used the same one I had last year, only I updated it to fit my color scheme for this year.  (you can see last years HERE)

What do you think?

I also incorporated some of  our older ornaments into the mix.

That pinnochio was mine from when I was a child.

The mice are our family ornament pics from the last three  years.

Here is the family ornament we picked out as a family this year at our favorite Christmastime shop.

The boys loved it because it looks like our black lab Tango.

We picked up a couple of extra ornaments this year on our family trips.

This one is from our trip to Boston/Cape Cod.

This is from our family trip to Disneyworld.

Do you pick ornaments as a family?

Ever thought of using them as an advent calendar to count down for Christmas?

Better than candy I say!

  1. This is such a pretty and clever idea and it’s great that you can use it every year but still make it different

  2. Love it! We got the little paper German ones with the chocolates in them this year. I need to do a craft for an advent table wreath. We always had one growing up. I need to get on it asap cause Sunday is the 2nd one this month!
