Countdown 'til Christmas

We did an Advent Calender to countdown the days until Christmas this year. I saw a lot of things online and combined a few things l liked.
This is what I came up with.
It's on the kitchen door, so Tanner can check under the numbers each day to see what he and Conner get to do.
Yesterday we were suppose to make ornaments and give them to our neighbor, but instead we went to Tallahassee and saw a movie and then saw Santa. The "Real Santa" is at the Tallahassee Mall. He remembered Tanner from last year and said how he had really grown. He also said that he was on the nice list for now and he wasn't sure if Conner was on the nice or naughty list. Tanner talked and talked to him and told him the 2 things he wants for Christmas, "a little guitar and a crane". Conner wasn't too happy with Santa holding him, but it is a great picture.
So today we did our ornaments and we will be delivering them to "Miser Walk" tonight.
There was a joke behind today and also a note that there were prizes in the boys rooms.
I am loving the countdown and I think the boys will too! Only 23 more days to go!
