Countdown to Christmas

December 21, 2011

I am still amazed at how fast this Christmas Season is going.  With it being less than a week away, I wanted to share with you my newest creation coming to The Scrappy Gourmet... 
Countdown to Christmas.
I have several different countdowns to Christmas around the house.  Our traditional countdown to Christmas chain, which my children love to create and then take apart each day to reveal what Christmas activity we will be doing.
I hope the kiddos never get too old for this..  Being 17 and 14, I know it will probably come to and end all too soon.  My hope is that when they are grown and have a family of there own, they will hand down some of our Christmas Traditions. 
Then I have a daily flip book, that was made, so each one of my kids get the excitement of pulling the tag that lists the activity is for that day.  They take turns either pulling the chain link or flipping the book and pulling the activity tag each day. 
Now this one is joining us for me, one that will continue to have a place in my home when the kids grow out of the chain and the activity flip book.
Filled with some of my favorite Christmas quotes and beautiful images. 

You can see more images of this book here.
