I Have the Christmas Bug
I know, I know...Halloween isn't even here yet and I already have the Christmas bug. I get this way every year and I have to remind myself that Halloween AND Thanksgiving come first. But who cares right? This is my baby's first Christmas so I think I am allowed to jump the gun a little. I know Addie isn't going to grasp the whole concept of Christmas this year, but that doesn't make me any less excited to celebrate it with her. I have actually been contemplating a purchase. It is a Christmas Advent Calendar from Land of Nod and I think it is just ADORABLE! Each day you remove a little pocket, which you can fill with a little present or piece of candy, and the kids can count down the days until Christmas. I just think this is such a fun way to celebrate each day of the holiday season. If I had it my way, I would start the countdown the day after Halloween...but I guess December 1st will do :-) I know it is a bit pricey and Addie really won't understand it until at least next Christmas....but I would sort of like to start the tradition now, even if I have to fill each pocket with Gerber Puffs :-) What do we think?
