2014's Advent Calendar recap.

During the month of December we completed our Advent Calendar activities. Like previous years we tried to make the activities about giving to other people and making a difference in the community. Truth be told it was a little more tricky to do the 'random acts of kindness' this year because Cruz was slightly more hesitant about giving - perhaps it is something to do with being 4!? Who knows. Anyway we made our way through the month's activities and he slowly started to grasp the idea of giving without receiving again.

I know December has come and gone, but I wanted to collate all our activities and their photos together in one post so that I can look back over it next year (and the year after that..and the year after that). Once it is published I'll delete the individual posts I made during December.

We started with this plan that we made together:

December One: Boy's Kindy Concert followed by a bubble bath and new Christmas pyjamas.

December Two: Family Christmas story time with milk and cookies.

December Three: Treat our swimming instructor.

December Four: Pageant of Lights

December Five: Take coffees to the boy's teachers (I ended up buying them a Boost juice each)

December Six: Write a Christmas card to the soldiers.

December Seven: Leave a gift on someone's doorstep.

December Eight: Leave a gift under the Wishing Tree.

December Nine: Write Christmas Cards to family and friends.

December Ten: Surprise our doctor

December Eleven: Give a gingerbread house kit to a family.

December Twelve: Town's Carol's by Candlelight

December Thirteen: Treat our local policeman

December Fourteen: Take flowers to an old age home.

December Fifteen: Take Christmas treats to our neighbours

December Sixteen: Put a giftcard on someone's windscreen.

December Seventeen: Take a homemade card and treats to our Pastors.

December Eighteen: Take balloons to the children's ward.

December Nineteen: Give the 'post lady' a gift.

December Twentieth: Pay for someone's order behind us.

December Twenty-first: Send a Secret Santa gift.

December Twenty-second: Christmas light looking with hot chocolates (I forgot to take a photo of this one).

December Twenty-third: Santa cookies and milk (again - another forgotten photo)

December Twenty-fourth: Open Christmas Eve boxes.

December is my favourite month of the year - and looking back over these photos I can see why! It is a month filled with fun, giving and excitement - and the boys just have a ball!
