A Note from Monika
We’ve done a little re-decorating and shifting of furniture since my son joined the Navy, well and we now have a fish tank where our Santa collection used to rest, so our holiday home is quite a bit different this year. That said, the girls squealed with delight when they saw the advent calendar! Of course, since we now have readers, Mommy will have to place each day’s activity inside the drawer just before it advent calendar time.

December Fun Fact
We have our first real tree in seven years! We’ll also be packing away the baby-safe ornaments and pulling out all our treasured heirloom and glass ornaments that have
been packed away for those 7 years...a real grown up tree and I’m really looking forward to it.
