It is a family tradition to have a CANDY filled Advent Calendar EVERY year. My grandma use to buy them for us as kids and now my mom makes sure that my two kiddo's get their Advent Calendars when we are at her house for Thanksgiving. This year was no exception. Both of my kids came home with Advent Calendars in hand. And Ryan couldn't wait for Monday the 1st to be able to open that little door with the number 1 on it.
He was bummed when he woke up to find Taylor had already headed off to school so they couldn't open #1 together. But that didn't keep him for opening and ENJOYING his chocolate on his own!
The look on his face is pure happiness of yet another year of the "Chocolate Countdown!"
