If you haven't decided upon your Advent calendar activities this year, be sure to check out Focus on the Family's new resource: Advent Calendar
You can access this resource on the web, from your Ipad, facebook and there is even a printable version. Even if you have lots of traditions, this Advent calendar is easy to use and has some great ideas. We used Sunday's activity for our church service.

Focus on the Family is also having an Advent Contest that you can enter everyday, as you work your way through the Advent activities. Click here for today's entry form!
This is an awesome resource and we can't wait to use this to help us refocus our attention to the reason for our celebration. The Greatest Gift ever given: JESUS!
