BLOGMAS 2016 - Day 14 { Advent Calendar }

Advent Calendar, yay or nay?

Let me start by saying that when my kids were little, we always did advent calendars.  I would either buy the chocolate ones from the store, or I had my own that I would fill with candy and chocolates for them.

As they got older, they lost interest, and I stopped doing them.  It's so sad when you think how your children grow up and suddenly the things you all enjoyed sharing together, are now just a memory.  I so wish they were still little.


This was one of the advent calendars I had made, we used it back in 2008.

I fear this post is quite boring, but I just really don't have any advent calendars to share. If we were still using one, I would have shown you what was in them, and nowadays with Pinterest etc, I feel like there are such adorable ideas out there for the little ones. Just wish we had all this when mine were growing up.

Anyway, do you still use an advent calendar?
