The Advent Calendar

My Grandma made every holiday extra special for us and I have so many amazing memories with her. As my hubby will tell you, I miss her every single day and especially during the holidays. One special tradition was her advent calendar that she made herself, including typing out all of the little cards for everyday that explain how the ornaments relate to our lives as Christians. It means so much to me that I now have this treasured piece of our tradition in my home. We think of Grandma Frances everytime we place an ornament on the tree. And I dream about the day that my children will light up with excitement when we take out the calendar for Christmas!
