#1 Countdown to Christmas
Every year the Kiddos look forward to receiving their Advent calendar, Each day the kids get to open a new window and find a yummy chocolate treat. I think this is something fun for the kids to do as they countdown to Christmas. You can DIY these or find them super cheap at the dollar store.

Every year we drive around looking at Christmas lights in our neighborhood.

Every year we visit Santa at the mall or at Boss Pro Shop. We enjoying walking around seeing all of the decor, and listening to the holiday music.
