Last year a friend of mine sent us a gift of a computer-based Advent calendar by Jacquie Lawson and it was an instant hit. The kids would sit for hours, just playing with all the little activities for each day. So this year we bought another version (best $2.75 I've spent all year!), and it also has been a major highlight of our Christmas season.
Last year's version took place in London, but this year's is actually an Alpine village- - and it reminds us a lot of some the towns we vacationed in this past summer, so that's an extra special bonus!
I highly recommend this activity for kids!
Meanwhile, Pete has been playing his favorite Christmas tunes, which largely include the Oak Ridge Boys' album and the Bill Gaither Band. Our kids have learned to love this music, too..... Here's a video Pete shot of the boys singing a Gaither tune this week:
