Counting down for Christmas

Life is finally settling down from the holidays and I can sit here and blog.
(however our tree may or may not still be up)
So be aware the next couple posts will be Christmas!
You've been warned.

The countdown for Christmas was very fun this year.
We have a darling wooden house as our advent calendar with the cutest little doors and knobs.
Every day Miles would go to the "Christmas house" and we would count to whatever door needed to be opened.

Behind each door was a piece of paper that Miles would unfold and "read" what it said.
It was something fun that we got to do that day.

 Some of the activities we did were just going to the local Christmas Parade and eat candy...

Or have friends over for a Christmas craft...
Or a fun Disneyland day with friends...
and make brownies...

We learned how to use scissors and made the sweetest....

We went to the Christmas festival and sled on a tiny hill that you could hear Miles giggling all the way down...

and one of the count down days was to just wrap daddys presents.
(there is no turning back now that he knows how to use scissors)

It was so fun.
Miles loved it.
We loved it.
We got Hot Coco and drove around to look at lights, we cuddled and watched movies, we took goodies out to people, we played with play dough. 
It was so fun for our family.
Such a fun way to count down to Christmas!
