We are ready ready ready for Christmas. Super ready. Couldn't be more ready. Not so much for the Christmas day present hoopla thing - although that will be fun. But we are counting down until we pack our bags, load up the car and make our way through the mountains to family! FAMILY! We miss them all so much! And we get to spend time with both sides this year and we can hardly wait.
We needed something to help us count down to the big day. Advent calendars are fun and all, but to be honest the thought of stuffing one with trinkets for each kid (meaning 50 trinkets!) sounded like a bit much. Plus, we aren't counting down to Christmas morn, we just need a countdown to ROAD TRIP 2012. So I made this. We tear a number off each morning.
You could do the same for Advent or Christmas morning for sure. Especially if you want to bypass treasure hunting for the traditional Advent calendars.
It's a small thing to do, but helps us pass each day. It'll be here before we know it! Now the trick is to enjoy days 23-1.
Be Merry & Bright!
