It’s a tradition in our family to do an advent calender. My grandmother cross-stitched one for me and my mom would individually wrap each gift and tie it to the calender (I’ll take a picture of it when I pull it out at the end of the month). After I was married, my friend Jenn Cook hand made me and Jon one.
I love this tradition. It makes me excited for December 1 and having my children open a special little gift each day. With our son’s new love for Legos I found this Lego Advent Calender that is pretty cool (I even watched a YouTube video on it, that’s how big of a geek I am). For $39, it’s not a bad deal considering each gift I would normally buy is about $0.50-$1.00 and I DON’T HAVE TO WRAP each tiny gift. That’s seems like a lot of good time saved to me.
So stinking adorable. I’ve looked for it at Target and Toys R US but both stores have been out the last two times I checked, so I’m ordering it on the main Lego Super Store website (which also has a lot of really fun games and videos).
