This here is my favorite accessory for Christmas! It's my advent calendar. The red cabinet was a Christmas gift to me from my in-laws. I used to fill it with chocolate, or the pieces from our Lego advent calendar, but I have since moved on. I bought a small box of vintage Christmas ball ornaments-really small ones, and a small tree. I put 24 ornaments into the cabinet (you know, one for every day), and behind door 25 you ask? Well, that's the star for the top of the tree. I love it, and Riley loves to decorate the little tree with the ornaments.
Day 13! 12 days to go-The Twelve Days of Christmas!
The boys have their own advent calendar. This one is Playmobil. It's a pirate set. Every morning, Riley gets up and adds to the display. Then he sets out the next days box, and I don't think he even peeks at the next day's treasure. He's so organized.
Here's a closer look. The pirate is sleeping. Such a great pirate camp!
