Christmas Countdown - Day 1

Our Christmas tradition is to have the girls open one Christmas book per day that we read and then do a related activity.  The girls were SUPER excited to open their first book yesterday!

Here's the first book nicely wrapped in a fabric Christmas bag handmade by my wonderful mom!

Their first book is the Advent Storybook, and we read one story from it each day.

Their "activity" was really more of a gift than an activity...a playmobil advent calendar!  I don't know if they were more excited or if I was!

E(3) was upset that the first item in the calendar was a tree and not a person because she wanted to "talk" it.  She quickly took some of her nativity figures and incorporated them into the winter scene so that she would have somebody to "talk."

We LOVE the playmobil advent calendars...this is the first one we've had at Christmas, but we used the Princess Wedding advent calendar to countdown to E's 3rd birthday, and it was HUGE hit!
