Today is Day 2

Here is a challenge. What is this? You won't find out though..... We have a german tradition during the time before X-mas. It is called the adventscalendar. See this picture below.

It is a "count-down-calendar" that helps us to wait for X-mas. This means that on every day in December, I get to open one of those little doors of this calendar, and behind each door I will find a piece of chocolate. Today's chocolate had the form of a little house - isn't this cute?
So the first picture is actually a variation from this chocolate-adventscalendar. It is a sticker from a book about this little sheep Rica who will eventually have a Xmas party in the forest with her animal friends. But it builds up like an adventscalendar. Every day we get to read a short story to our baby and we can glue a window sticker on the window. So the first picture that we put on the window yesterday shows a little barn. Glancing towards the window, I thought the whole day: " What is this stain on my window?" Well hopefully it will look different soon.

    I still have my childhood advent calendar that we taped to the wall every Christmas. It only had pictures behind the doors, but I loved it. Now half the doors are missing and it is in a fragile state.

    My kids have their own three-dimensional advent calendars. One is a church and another similar to a barn or stable. They love running downstairs every morning to see what's behind the door for the day :)

    Hey Kelley, did you make those yourself or did you buy them somewhere? I didn't know you could get them in the US. I always wanted to give some to my Michigan based nieces, but I don't know where to get them in the US. Will post pictures later of Dec 3 and 4. Have a good day.

    Nope, I bought them at Target. There are quite a few that can be purchased online at http://www.target.com/gp/search/176-8175808-1797206?field-keywords=advent+calendar&url=index%3Dtarget%26search-alias%3Dtgt-index&ref=sr_bx_1_1&x=0&y=0 and then shipped to your Michigan nieces :)
