I'm linking up the advent calendar I created. I'm especially giddy about it this year because we have a little one (19 months old) to start sharing the season with and creating our own memories and traditions.
I made this advent calendar with our family in mind, and considering our child's age, but of course you can personalize it to suit your family's needs. I printed the labels on the computer and taped them to the tags with Japanese tape.
