Christmas Countdown

Pin It Now!
What kid doesn't love to count down the days until Christmas? I know I did and actually still do! Ever since I was a wee girl, I have made a Christmas chain. Every night before bed I would tear one chain off until Christmas Eve when there was only one left. I have now passed this tradition on to my kids. This year I had to add an extra color for Shiloh. It helps us all keep track of whose turn it is to tear off the chain each night!

About 5 or 6 years ago we started creating lasting memories with Adorenaments from Family Life. The set includes 12 ornaments with each one containing a story about a distinctive name of Jesus.

This year, a very generous lady at Mark's work gave our children a beautifully made Advent Calendar. So, now we can count down the days in 3 different ways!

we used to do the chain link thing, I'm doing one for Jackson this year.

I am always so slow at getting out my decorations that we never get the advent things started on time and then don't do it. I just got out the decorations last night and started putting things up. The little Santa calendar tells me there are only 15 days left until Christmas!
