okay, i’m just as shocked as you are that this is posting BEFORE december….(okay..one day before but still)
i love them
i don’t know about you but my kids are a nuisance i mean really curious about how many days until santa comes and spoils them rotten and ask ALLTHETIME. so i love having a way for them to countdown without me….
which is way we have the christmas countdown here….:
and we also have our chocolate version all ready to be consumed
and now we are going to have a little fun HERE:
I orginally had bought 24 manila envelpoes. then reality hit me what a time suck that would be so i opted for one envelope and then loads of cards to put in it!!!
got them all printed up and cut out
and glued them to some cardstock,
distressed them and laminated them..
i even laminated the envelope
you just take an exacto knife and slice the opening
i also made some printables for the 12 days of christmas:
and just numbers….
I rolled up all the stories and stuff I have collected over the years and tied with gold ribbons. Each night before bed starting Dec 1, we turn off all the lights but the tree and read a story together on the rug. My kids (and hubby) LOVED it last year and can't wait to do it again! They already put the story bag in its place by the tree!
Love all these other ideas! LOVE LOVE LOVE this holiday season!!!

Adorable idea!! I featured it on my TT&J; facebook page 🙂
Love these ideas. I just posted the Advent Calendar I made using a cookie sheet and metal tins on my blog. But I was needing a little extra inspiration on activities to put inside. Thanks!
I'd love for you to stop by and check out my calendar. Thanks!
I saved toilet paper rolls to do a Martha Stewart Thanksgiving favor, which I never got around to. I was just getting ready to toss them when I saw your blog. Oh, how cute! My granddaughter will thank you. BTW – my maiden name was West. Probably cousins, right?
YES! I want the word doc!! Pretty please? Will ya email me?
What a cute idea! I love it
Sadly, no little ones here!! Sniff
Great idea! Thank you!
I ADORE the Christmas Countdown idea! I especially like that I can make the daily things to do that will fit in with our lifestyle! This is the PERFECT idea! Thank you so much!!!
