Advent Calendar

This Christmas we are using an Advent Calendar to prepare our hearts for Christmas. 
I got the idea from another blog and loved it!  Each drawer contains not a treat, but an object that represents the Christmas story and a verse that goes along with it.  Our children had so much fun running around the house collecting various objects to place inside.  (If we didn't have it, they drew pictures of what we needed!)  On our other blog I am detailing (almost daily) what is inside each drawer and the verse that goes along with it.  You can see it at A Snap Shot of Motherhood.  What are you doing this year to prepare your hearts for God's Greatest Gift?

*If you want step by step instructions of how to put this all together check out the first link above.  Merry Christmas!
