It's mine!!

I spotted this advent house at Kohls earlier this month and decided it would be mine after Christmas when everything went on sale! So here is my advent house that I got for 75% off the day after Christmas.

I am so excited to use it next year. Our church gave us this AWESOME advent list to do. We barely got any of it done this year. I had my tonsils in mid December...so yeah...not really up to doing ANYTHING before Christmas.

Here are some of the things listed for advent I was given. So much better than candy...

Day5- birthday candle -- for Jesus' birthday
Day6- a key --- Jesus is the key to life
Day7- a crouton -- These croutons would not go very far if you were hungry! But Jesus can make much out of little. Read John 6:1-15

Isn't that awesome?! Each day has a bible passage to read your children...So I may add some candy to some doors WITH the items suggested on this list.


  1. Oh I LOVE this idea!! I there a place that I can get the whole idea list??? We have had a advent box for a few years now and all we've done is candy or small toys. The Christmas day box is a little bigger so they usually get a stocking stuff in there. But I love this idea..it bring it more meaning which is what I've always wanted but wasn't sure how to do!
    So glad I saw this!

  2. How can we get the list, we love the idea. My wife and I have 4 and she is a brave homeschooling mommy!😇
