Counting down to CHristmas

I stole this from Kiddley.com. She has a lot of fabulous ideas, and I was hunting for advent calendars when I found this... A List!! You know I could not resist.

THey were talking about one family activity a day in December to count down to Christmas.

Don't ask me why my Hs are always caps. Okay it's because I use the wrong finger to push the Shift key. But since I am old now I'm pretty stuck with it. But I digress.

So here are Kiddley's activities :)

Here are ours from last year (Some you will see we gleaned from Stephanie and her readers which are all definitely worth checking out):
