The count down to Christmas . . .

This year I remembered that we should probably get an Advent calendar once December had already started (and especially when it is cold outside my errand running with three kiddos in toe seems to be infrequent) so I came up with our own Johnson Family count down that only required red, green & yellow construction paper. Each day one of the kids gets to tear off a ring (and yes, usually an argument has insued by this point as to whose day it is).

It is much shorter now compared to when I took this picture, but the kids are enjoying it and it allows me to divert the "when is it going to be Christmas?" questions by pointing at the wall.
