I love advent calendars, too. This year a saw one in Pottery Barn Kids (one of the felt varieties in the shape of a tree with large pockets) and I think I'm going to get it for Z -- I just have to figure out what a two year old would like to find.

When I was little, we had one where you put the ornaments on the tree -- I think my mom made it. We got so excited when it was time for it to come out.


I love the Lego calendar...I need to run over to the Lego store and get one! Hopefully one of our VP's [who used to work for Lego] will hook me up!


Advent calendars are a must for me! My mom always sends one in the mail to me so last year, as a Christmas present, I made her a reusable one with handmade cardstock boxes and tab-and-slot "locking" doors. Each door covered with Adornit paper like this: http://www.adornitscrapbook.com/Shop/Shop.cfm?pg=individual&tid=1&pid=22067. This year, before December starts, I'll send her tasty chocolates and candy to put in the boxes for her and my dad.

I wish I had taken pictures!
