I really want to get an Advent calendar for the kids.

I've gotten chocolate ones in the past. This year I got Lego ones for my sons and am still trying to decide for DD. I also got one for my dog. The pet stores here (Germany) really get into the holidays. I shop at one that has homemade dog treats in Christmas shapes. I love it. Advent will be big in our house! Everyone, but Mom, gets his or her own calendar.

Oh, that's right! I forgot all about the Lego calendars. I was too late last year, so I'm going to see if I can find one (maybe 2) for the kids. I know Ian would love it, and Lucy usually wants to do whatever Ian does.

I didn't realize they had one for pets!

Germany is big on pets (especially dogs).

The Star Wars one is in stock locally, but we can get the Lego City calendar for about $15 less if I order online. Decisions, decisions...they both look really cool.
