Countdown to Christmas

Last year I made a lovely countdown to Christmas for the kids to open each day.  Mocha ate the first one.  I had to make some replacements on the fly and they just weren't exactly what I wanted. So I started over this year with a new concept.

This year I added some new items that are experiences rather than toys or candy.  I also found some fun items in the dollar spot at Target like headphone cord keepers and computer screen cleaners.

I was afraid the kids wouldn't be into the countdown this year.  Lizzy learned the tooth fairy is mom and Simon has known for a while.  Lizzy was every bit excited about the countdown as she has been in previous years.

Simon was even jazzed to open his day.  They drew watching the How the Grinch Stole Christmas with Grinchie treats.

Lizzy especially loved her Grinch float.
