So I wasn't as quick with the pictures as I planned on. Home school and meetings will do that to you. Here are the pictures I took of the advent calendars and the count down calendar.
Advent Calendar 1
(this is on a 12 muffin tin, I plan to put things "to do" in the cups, and I know we won't actually do 24, we've tried that. So I am doing 12 instead, like the 12 days of Christmas. This I think I can stick to.)
I made this count down calendar to hang and use for the entire 25 days. This is a lot more non-committal than the advent calendar! hahaha I had a lot of fun making this with all the little doo-dads. I want to make a few more. I need to take more pics of the process, but I forgot to do that as I went. Next time I will put the camera on the table.
