December one


I cannot believe that it is already December!

I think I will have to get Logan a chocolate advent calendar this year! I used to love searching for the correct little door each day and then having the surprise of what was inside!
(really just what shape the rather gross chocolate was in!)

Did you all have these growing up?

We always had them when we were growing up too...loved them. In fact, I couldn't find them for years but this year I've seen them alot. I got a couple for my girlfriends girls.

My Mom still gets them for us every year!

We always had an advent calendar growing up. Not the kind with candy in it though. I have two sisters and my mom would alternate our initials on our normal calendar for the month so that we each knew when it was our turn. We were pretty die hard about it.

I just sent 2 of these home for my nephews. For some reason I also loved the Advent Calendar but usually gave my sister the chocolate!

I most definitely had one of these as a kid - but do you know what? I actually had to "share" with my Brother ha ha! I see them in the stores all the time around the holiday season, but I don't think I've ever purchased one myself. I want to leave that tradition and yummy taste of chocolate back in my childhood memories. Either that or I don't think I'm disciplined enough, around chocolate to just eat 1 per day. ;)

yes we did! my little sister would always open the doors before each day would come... i know one year a pretend puppy was behind the door for Dec. 25th but she already had opened it... no surprise! haha they are so exciting for little kids though!

I love these! We used to get them when I was little, but we stopped for some reason. In law school, my friend Lindsey gave all us girls one every year. She now lives states away but still sends one to us in the mail!
