christmas is by far my favorite holiday (shocking right ha!) this is our third christmas with an advent calendar.  i remember as a kid having the chocolate a day ones but hubs and i decided to go with one that has little boxes!  every year we pick activities that we want to do as well as a few days that we give each other little gifts.  sometimes the gifts fit into the boxes and sometimes it is a clue to where we can find the gift.  this year with grae’s first christmas we tried to put a lot of thought into what we’d be doing and how much we could do with a 5.5 month old.  some of the activities are for the whole family and others like driving around to look at lights will just be me and the hubs (grae HATES his car seat at night)
