advent at our house.

I like to do these easy advent envelopes with the kids every year. Last year, Claire called them endebopes.

Before you get too impressed, know that inside each envelope includes really simple things that we were going to do anyway. Things like Let's go cut down our Christmas Tree or Today we'll make gingerbread people.

Some even say really complicated things like, Let's sing Jingle Bells! or Let's watch a movie in our cozies.

It will be tougher to pull these off when she's able to read the contents of each envelope herself. I'm hoping I have at least one more year of creative license when it comes to the contents.

Can one of them say "Mama goes out with friends, while Dada & kiddos spend some quality time together."? :)
