we’re going to have the hap, hap, happiest christmas…

“And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse”-Christmas Vacation

i got an advent calendar this year…the first we’ve ever done…i tried to fill it with things we could do together, emphasizing on “free” things we could do together…it’s really hard to get everyone in the same place at the same time so i wanted to focus on together time…

of course some things were met with good ol’ fashioned christmas bitching and moaning, like “smile at everyone you see today” & “donate 3 toys to charity”…yeah, that went over real well…

but others have been a lot fun and the kids really got into…

005 some of the things we’ve done…

1. paper chains (i love a good paper chain)

2.  paper snowflakes

3.  make wrapping paper (big hit with the 5 year old!)

4.  drink hot chocolate

5.  roast marshmallows

6.  help mom make dinner (everyone gets a turn)

7.  breakfast for dinner

8.  watch a christmas movie

9.  read a christmas story

10.  go out for ice cream

etc,. etc…

what are your advent hits and misses??
