Advent Calendar

Updated: Dec 2, 2019

Today is the first day of advent - a time to focus our hearts on the Love, Joy, Peace and Hope that is Christmas. Our family advent calendar is one our favorite traditions. Yes we have an elf who flies around to a different spot of the house each day -- but it's our Advent Calendar that brings all our Christmas activities, motivations and fun!


Here is a peek at ours -- and hoping that some of them may bring us together this season! Happy Christmas Birds & Bears!
