Advent List 2020

This year started just like any other...  

In the attempt to make things as normal for my children as possible, I have decided to go all out with Advent Activities this year, COVID style.

The Advent Activities are a prized tradition in our household.  They are waited for all year and even my adult children like to get in on the action.  This year proved to be a bit of a challange when coming up with 24 family activities.  My daughter has a full time job, my husbands job is more stressful than ever, and most of the activities that we usually enjoy are canceled... but I decided to rise to the occasion and see if I couldn't finish out this year as good as it started (instead of all the garbage in the middle).
