The only kind of advent calendar worth a hoot is one with prizes (i.e. chocolate)! I know that fancy schmancy advent calendars exist where the child receives a note or gift or some other homemade craft each day during the Christmas season but let's be honest... I don't have the time or the skills for that. I rarely have two hands to use for any one activity - including typing this post - (Charlotte is in one arm while I peck at the keys like a chicken scratching for corn with the other) so when I do I'm not spending that time on advent gifts. In other words, I am a big fan of the store bought advent calendar with chocolates behind each door. Grocery store advent calendars are fun but let's face it - the chocolates taste horrible. So I am beyond delighted that this year, Auntie M was able to track down advent calendars for Grace and
I Charlotte with real CADBURY chocolate! Delish!
Day one - literally - of advent season AND of the lifetime love/hate relationship with chocolate and we've already created a monster. In the words of Grace....Uh oh, Dit!
