Our kids are very into opening the advent calendar every day. They do not appreciate having to take turns though. So Ellie decided to create her own advent calendar for her personal use. I was very impressed. She made it in the shape of a clock and is marking off one number on the clock for each day that passes. She a little short on days since the clock only has 12 numbers, but I still thought it was a great idea. Also, notice in the picture of her in front of the door how she's taped a crown up high on the door so Max can't reach it and only she can mark off the days. Her mind is always working. It makes me a bit nervous.
