I decided that my blog is the best way to organize my December Daily album, especially since I do not print photos at home and if I stop a Walgreen's every day for a single photo purchase I am sure they will come up with some kind of nickname for me.
So I begin with our advent calendar. Notice the tiny pockets. They were fine when it was only Summer and I could stick a little Hershey's kiss in there for her. And then later, I squeezed 2 mini candy bars for the girls. But 3? No way. So I am putting clues in each pocket for them to find their treats somewhere in the house. The last day, is a big clue and it leads them to new PJs to wear to bed on Christmas Eve. I spent some time this afternoon writing clues and I am about half done. I made the mistake of trying to make them rhyme. For instance:
We've got something for you-
I think its your fave-
You should go check out the microwave!
Christmas is almost here!
You can find a treat where dad keeps his beer!
So needless to say, its a lot of work for me;)
So when discussing this project with Rachael, she recalled that mom had an advent calendar that we just opened little doors each day and there was a different Christmas picture inside. For the 1st time I realized that it was an old cardboard one that ONCE had a chocolate behind every door! She just kept bringing it out each year! Rachael and I never knew what we were missing! Getting all excited over a picture of a mouse under a Christmas tree....
