My advent calendar ideas





I seriously can not figure out what's wrong with me, I'm just not really in the mood to decorate for Christmas this year. Crazy, right?! I usually love decorating, but with a 1 and 3 year old running around the house, the thought of putting out my treasured nativities and a tree full of breakable ornaments seems like a recipe for disaster. So, I'll probably put it off a bit. BUT, one of my favorite parts of Christmas is our advent calendar of activities. LOVE it. You can find my original advent calendar post here. Can't wait to get started with the fun! So I thought I'd share with you my tentative plan for our advent activities this year. Here it is (in no particular order):


Read "The Elf on a Shelf"


Make a paper Christmas countdown chain


Watch Christmas Vacation


Get hot chocolate and see the lights


Get and decorate the Christmas tree


Decorate a gingerbread house


Take treats to our neighbors


Watch Elf


Go to the ward Christmas party


Go sledding


Sing Christmas carols


Christmas book night


Do some secret service


Build a snowman


Go to Arthur Christmas


Make and decorate sugar cookies


Go shopping for brother gifts


Read Snowmen at Christmas


Watch the Santa Clause


Watch The Christmas Story


Read Luke 2 and watch the Nativity movie


Read and watch the Polar Express


Go shopping for stocking stuffers





I guess we'll be busy watching all our Christmas movies. And I'll have to watch the 90's version of Miracle on 34th Street because that's Andrea and my favorite but no one else wants to watch it here:( Womp, womp.


Anyway, hope this gives you a few ideas of things to add to your holiday list! Any other suggestions for fun family activities??
