We decorate the upstairs tree and start our advent calendars on Day 1, then continue with crafts, games, baking, and fun throughout the month. One of my favorites is making RED & GREEN dinner. You can find red & green nacho chips at World Market, Kroger, or Aldi in December. Cheap craft activities are at Michaels, Dollar Tree, Walmart, Hobby Lobby and Target. I also do little goodie bags that I put the craft activities and a goodie each day. Party City, Walmart, Hobby Lobby, Dollar Tree, and Michaels carry items that are inexpensive that I use like stickers, candy, socks, and pens.

Gearing up for the 25 Days of Christmas!!
Christmas is my most favorite time of year. I wait all year for this time of year! Every year I like to do the 25 Days of Christmas Activities to get everyone in the Christmas Spirit. These things can be big or small. We do crafts, baking, watch Christmas Movies, drive around to look at Holiday lights, etc... I have a craft item for almost every night thanks to 75% off clearanced stuff from the previous years. Last year I believe I went overboard at the 75% off sales and we could have started Christmas Crafts in the Summer! I make a Calendar each December that list what we do. I also have a index card calendar that shows what we did on that day each year and I put photos from that day with each index card so we can see what we did each year.
