Do you have any Advent traditions for the weeks leading up to Christmas?

Each of our kids has an Advent calendar (chocolates), but I think next year we're going to try the Lego calendar.

I love that the wreath has a family activity.

Unfortunately, I was late on the Lego Advent calendars! I didn't know these things even existed. Next year, I'm going to be sure to pick one up for my son. The dog got into his chocolate Advent calendar. :(

It's funny, my son is the one who reminds me on Sundays that we have to do our Advent activity! If it was up to me, I'd forget.

Sorry to hear about the Lego Advent calendars! Yikes to the chocolate one being ate by the dog. That is so great that your son initiates doing the activity! :)

He really does enjoy the Advent activities! I've got a calendar reminder set up for the Lego calendars next year. I'm going to be ready! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
