..advent calendar!

I am tired and Christmas hasn’t even come close yet.

A fancy advent calendar was not happening this year.
But, I realized I was the one that wanted it.
My kids didn’t care too much about the fancy calendar part. They simply liked the fun of opening a gift and marking another day closer to Christmas.
So I made it easy on myself. And simplified it.

A big basket is filled with fabric-wrapped small gifts labeled with the number and kid. Easy peasy.
And I get to keep the basket.
It sits in the living room mocking my children.
They are found occasionally sitting about the basket peering in and trying to guess the contents.

I think this may be my new go-to advent calendar!
Maybe something like this would work for you and your family?
Or do you enjoy the fancy advent calendars?
