 Disclosure 1

12DayOfChristmas_Day1

 

To me, the holidays is all about spending time with family and loved ones. There’s something special about this time of year and we really love to focus on one another as much as possible. Over the years, we have created our own holiday traditions and we look forward to them every year. So for the next twelve days, I will be sharing some of our family’s favorite holiday activities that you can do with your own family and hopefully integrate into your own traditions. Personal Creations will be joining in on the fun by providing a $500 gift card! Each day you will have the opportunity to enter!

I thought I’d begin with our favorite Christmas activity – the Advent Calendar. We have been doing one for several years and it is such a wonderful way to count down the days until Christmas. To be honest, we do several Advent Calendars. We have a small toy one for Lucas, a Nativity Book Advent (read a short story every night) and our favorite – a Family Activity Advent Calendar.

It sits in the kitchen and every morning Lucas runs downstairs and opens the day’s activity.

Each day is filled with a special activity for the whole family to enjoy. Some of the activities are big – like going to see A Christmas Carol at the theater – and some of the activities are small – like singing Christmas carols while sipping on a mug hot cocoa.

Big or small. We look forward to each day.
