Yikes! It just occurred to me that it's true. It always seems like I'll never be ready, but then everything always comes together somehow. The magic of the season, right? Plus, it helps having some cute advent calendars to remind me to get wrapping!
The kids take turns each day taking a chocolate out of the countdown elf and the matchbox (which my sister Cami made for us about 7 years ago, it's been well loved! When each matchbox has been turned around it makes a picture of a snowman.). Sometimes there are fun stickers in there too.
