Christmas Advent

I wish I could say that genius struck, but at least an idea struck. I was looking at advent calendars the other day, and decided to come up with my own. Today, I put the idea into effect. I sewed up some muslin bags, used heat-transfer paper to make numbers, and then modge-podged Christmas paper on clothes pins. These bags were filled with treats, and a scripture per day.
When they were hung up, I think they looked pretty nice. I can't wait for the kids to see them in the morning!

FUN!!! You're such a great mom! I, on the other hand am neglectful. THe kids asked yesterday when we could put up Christmas decorations. I gave them a list of things that had to happen before that could even be considered. We'll probably decorate a few days before Christmas. As usual. (sigh)
