When I began our current Advent Calendar tradition, I hoped it would create beautiful memories for Sugar Plum.
What I had not expected, but have been moved by, was what I would receive.
When a little girl opens a simple slip of paper, reads the words and literally jumps for joy before running into your arms with a hug and a "thank you, thank you, thank you".....well, it is priceless.
Day 23 - Make and decorate Christmas Cookies with Lollipop Pop.
Day 24 - Make a birthday cake for Jesus.
Technically Advent ends at midnight, I always add Christmas Day as well.
Day 25 - Sing Happy Birthday to Jesus.
I can hardly wait until next year!
