I've thought about getting an Advent calendar for the kids for a while but I never see one that I particularly like. I also don't have the patience to make one. So today I ran across this little beauty while I was out shopping, which satisfies my desire for the advent calendar AND a darling little Christmas village!
I know, right?!?!!?
I 'borrowed' the pictures from an eBay auction so ignore the Best Buy Always thing.
So the bad news is that I also got this box of Chocolates From Around the World that have pretty, shiny foil wrappers and I thought they would be perfect and lovely to open every day. Sadly I got everything opened and realized that the chocolates are too big to fit in the doors for the calendar. Poor me. I now have to eat all these lovely chocolates myself. Also I need to find something smaller for the village.
Bart is nearly beside himself with excitement and can't believe that he has to wait an entire month to start opening doors to find treats. It occurred to me that he just might be planning to eat 48 pieces of chocolate on December 1. I might have to think this process through a little further.
