Our Advent Calendar

ImageLast year I put this Advent Calendar together to do with Michael. Each day we did activities and read Bible verses to help us enjoy time together as a family, focus on the true meaning of Christmas & make memories. I can’t wait to do it again this year, especially since Kate, our two year old, will be able to participate!
