In preparation for December...

Last year we used our little 3-foot tree as a sort of advent tree.  We wrapped 25 Christmas ornaments in paper (scrap paper that was finger painted on by my Little Misters) and put them under the tree.  Every night we sang a Christmas song and opened an ornament and placed it on the tree.  It was perfectly decorated by Christmas Eve!  Caleb talks about it all of the time and can hardly wait to have the tree in his room again this year!  I love that it's a soothing part of our bedtime routine, and that it doesn't involve food.

I thought I'd share my original idea now, in case you like it and want to do it yourself.  You still have two weeks to prepare!  Who knew I'd be so on top of things?  Ha!
