There are so many cool advent calendars that you can make yourselves.This was our advent calendar for the past three years. This year we're doing something different (top secret). Anyway I found a whole heap of cute ones online. I won't post pictures (I only use my own pix on the blog) but there are links to all sorts of awesomeness at the bottom of this post. This post was from um 2008? Each little drawer holds a note of a Christmas activity to do, event to go to or sometimes a sticker or jelly lolly.
