Advent

Every Advent growing up my mom would get out our Story of Christmas Advent calendar. Each night there's a little book that tells a part of the story of Christmas. We would always hang the little storybooks on a Christmas tree we had in our kitchen.
We started the tradition with Luke this year, but instead of hanging the books on a Christmas tree, we've been hanging them on our "advent wreath"...

Each night after we read the story and talk about it a little bit, Luke gets to pick a "Happy Birthday, Jesus present" out of a bag. It's full of little books, Hot Wheels cars, etc. and he get so excited about it! We're so glad that my mom kept the calendar and so excited to get to start the tradition with our family this year :)
