Lily's grandmother gave her an advent calendar to use at her house. She was so excited to tell me about the little doors that you can punch out and the little pieces of chocolate inside.
It reminded me of the ones my mother used to buy for me. I always looked forward to them. And I remember Christmas day always held the largest, creamiest chocolate of them all. It was always difficult for me to restrain myself from opening more than one on each day.
I wanted to get something like that for Lily to have at our house but I couldn't find anything close. However, I did find this cute sewing project from All Sorts for the advent calendar deprived, like myself.
Jenny filled each felt envelope with Ghiradelli Peppermint bark chocolate. Mmmmm.....But I would fill each with a different kind of peppermint or chocolate candy to surprise the babies.
I think Lily and Molly would go gaga for this idea. Hang over a mantle or along a staircase! But if you hang it over the mantle be sure to not light a fire. Otherwise you'll have some really icky envelopes.
