Over the holidays, the boys enjoyed their advent calendars from Auntie Fave.
Jackson's was an elaborate Lego calendar where each day was something to be built and add to a winter scene. Eli's was just as magical with each day providing a tiny toy to add to Santa's workshop.
Each evening we would open a day and play with that window's new treasure.
But Jackson was even pleased with Eli's advent-calendar learnings:
"Wow, mama, isn't this great? Eli is learning so many new vocabulary words like Trumpet and Gentleman!"
