25 Days of Christmas - Day #9

This is the first year our family has done an Advent Calendar! And so far everyone seems to enjoy it! We try to do it every night, but we have missed a few nights! I'm going to post my Advent ideas this weekend! It's not too late to start yours now! This post has some great variations!

25 Days of Christmas

Featured Blog – Pounds4Pennies

I am so happy to be able to participate in this Blog Share with
so many other bloggers. I love Christmas time, because it was always about
spending time with my family. It is the one time of the year where we all try
to make an effort to get home to mom and dad’s (nana and papa’s) house to enjoy
time with each other. When I was a single mom I was able to purchase a set of 3
trees of different heights for my Christmas tree. We now use these trees to put
in the three kids rooms. These are their Christmas trees to decorate how they choose each year.

They get to place their handmade ornaments on it each year. In order to count
down to Christmas we make a paper chain advent calendar for them to put on
their trees to count down to the birth of Jesus. Here are some variations on this easy frugal advent calendar.
