advent activities days 1-5

One of our absolute favorite Christmas traditions is our box advent calendar that counts down the days until Christmas.  Each day the open a new box containing a piece of candy for each of them and a note telling them a fun activity we will do that day.  Most are small things but there are a couple of big events mixed in.  It is always a great way to check off our standard Christmas activities in a fun, exciting way and it is highly anticipated by us all!

Day 1:  Christmas stories and hot chocolate

Day 2:  Family Christmas Movie Night watching of Elf

fun sidenote, I missed the movie because one of my closest friends went into labor with her first child!  I had the exciting task of grabbing their bags from home and bringing them to the hospital because it was definitely a not expected spur of the moment situation!

Day 3:  Covington Christmas Parade

My parents and two of my nieces came up for the weekend and got to go with us.  Such a fun morning!!

Day 4:  Making the BEST Christmas snack ever!!

Day 5:  Pom pom Christmas tree craft
