25 Days of Christmas

I am so happy to be able to participate in this Blog Share with

so many other bloggers. I love Christmas time, because it was always about

spending time with my family. It is the one time of the year where we all try

to make an effort to get home to mom and dad’s (nana and papa’s) house to enjoy

time with each other. When I was a single mom I was able to purchase a set of 3

trees of different heights for my Christmas tree. We now use these trees to put

in the three kids rooms. These are their Christmas trees to decorate how they choose each year.

They get to place their handmade ornaments on it each year. In order to count

down to Christmas we make a paper chain advent calendar for them to put on

their trees to count down to the birth of Jesus. Here are some variations on this easy frugal advent calendar.
