A Note from Jennifer Larson
Every year we do this Advent calendar where I leave clues in the boxes and the boys follow them to find Legos. We have done this for years, so I decided to finally record it. I’ve resisted scrapping this because the photos I take are always so bad (darn you, Minnesota winter!), but I want the boys to remember the fun they had with the clues. (Let me tell you, though, more than one morning I’ve woken up at 5 and dashed around to write the clue and hide the Legos, having forgotten the night before.) For families interested, this is the Karen Foster Advent calendar, and I tend to buy Lego sets that have around 200 pieces in them to stretch it out reasonably over 24 days (12 for each boy). I get one set for each boy.

December Fun Fact
Christmas Eve my family usually goes to every church service since we all sing in the church choirs, and they perform at every service.
