2015 Family Advent Calendar

For the past 7 years, Brad and have followed a family advent calendar during the holiday season. Every day from December 1st until December 25th, we have planned a Christmas related activity for our family. Some are big, some are small, some bring small gifts, some don't, some are for the entire family while others are just for Brad and I. Throughout the month, I will be sharing some of those activities and traditions. Take a look at what our calendar looks like this year.

*of course, with 3 small kids, nothing is set in stone and activities get switched around often
