.:{SCC} - Advent Calendar:.

Hello! We are the ladies from over at

We're super excited to be visiting with you today!

We love advent calendars! Why? Maybe because of all the great memories it brings back from our younger years. Missy has been adding to her advent calendar line up over the years and needed a place to organize all the different things she wanted to do each day leading up to Christmas. Here is what she came up with...

Fill each envelope with:

1. A little piece of candy for each child...most likely chocolate.:)

2. A simple, fun activity to do together as a family. (Click here for some great ideas!)

3. A scripture passage that will lead us on a journey to learn more about Jesus - after all, it is His birthday we are celebrating! We will add one star ornament each day as we read this passage.

What you will need:

A peg board just begging for some color.

Some envelopes.

Countdown numbers. Found these, here. We love ishare!

Some clips to hold and hang the envelopes.


She printed the printables, punched them out with a scallop 3 1/2 inch punch, clipped the number with the envelope and hung it on the spray painted peg board. So EASY and SO festive! The anticipation. The kids can't wait...success!

We'd love for you to stop by HowDoesShe? and see what else we've been up to!

Enjoy and have a wonderfully Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
