Advent Calenders a Plenty

Sound the Trumpets
Beat the drums
Advent is
When Jesus Comes

It feels as though I have been talking about it for week, but here it is in its old and tatty glory, my advent calender.  I won this aged 6 at Sunday School for a special drawing.

I had to drag it off my mother when the boys were born as we all adore it and have searched high and low for a similar one to no avail.

So the plan is to regale you with a poem and picture from it each day as it tells the story of advent.  It is such a nice way to discuss things with the minimads and it sits on our dining table for us to discuss each meal time. 

I have also strung the stocking advent calender I made too.  They will get their task card once home from school this evening!!

What a wonderful idea for a blog. I particularly like the stockings, what sort of things do you put on the task cards?

I am hoping it keeps them active.

I wanted to make an Advent task calendar this year but was out-voted by Sally and Sarah! Next year, though...
