Countdown to Christmas

I'm hoping to finish up our Advent Calendar this weekend. It's not going to pretty (not like Nicole's... HOLY MOLY, it's awesome!) but it will work - and we can worry about pretty next year :)

Instead of candy or chocolate, we'll be choosing a special family activity every day leading up to Christmas. Some of them will be Christmas-related, and some of them will just be about making memories together.

I have a pretty good list started, but I'd love to hear more ideas - things that you've done with your kids, things you remember from when you were a kid, things that you haven't tried but think are neat-o. Thanks in advance for your ideas! I can't wait to hear about your family traditions.

You should go to the library and find The Twenty-Four Days Before Christmas by Madeleine L'Engle. (It's been out of print for years.) That's what the family in the story does - there's good simple ideas, and it's basically a long short story, so you can read it quickly. It's one of my favourite books in the world.
