Everyday when Blakely was waking up she keep asking "is it Christmas?" I don't have a fancy advent calender so I used what we had to make a countdown for Christmas. Blakely and I made each circle out of fuzzy sticks and then attached them together-if I would have had colored construction paper I would have used that. Every morning when we wake up and we go and take one ring off. So now I don't have a child who thinks it is Christmas morning everyday.
