Some of us bloggers were chatting behind the scenes (we do that once in a while) about how nice it would be to take a little break in December. We all LOVE blogging, of course, but it requires a lot of time and energy. As you know, so does December ;). When Alissa from Creative with Kids suggested an online Advent calendar, you can imagine the response was a great big YES!!! I quickly signed up. You see, this online Advent calendar will allow me to meet two needs at once. I will be able to offer you fantastic activities geared toward spending quality time with your family, while I am spending quality time with mine!!! Hooray for a supportive and creative community!
Do you recognize any of the names on the list? How about Day 11 ;). Trust me on this… these bloggers will have terrific ideas to share! All you have to do is show up here (or sign up to have my posts delivered to your email… right above those cute pink buttons over on my side bar). I will send you right on over to a new activity.
I do plan on posting quite a bit less this month (aside from the daily Advent), but I have a few fun surprises up my sleeve so you will want to check in regularly.
Let’s slide into our slippers, put on some Christmas music, light a fire and sip some hot chocolate. It’s almost DECEMBER!!!
