Building up the holidays.

I have always gotten a chocolate advent calendar at the beginning of the holiday season.  It is something I look forward to every year and love opening each of the doors everyday, counting down to Christmas.  When I was a kid, I would save the chocolates so I could eat a bunch at one time.  I’m not entirely sure why that seemed like a good idea….  Currently my chocolate advent calendar sits proudly in my apartment with only a few days left before the 24th door (and the biggest chocolate piece on the calendar!).  But there has been a new discovery in the world of advent calendars – Lego calendars!!  My parents got it for Kellen for Christmas and he was nice enough to let me help him build some of the days.  It is part of the city collection and so far we have found robbers, a police station, police car, bonfire, and a Christmas tree with presents.   As much as I love his calendar, I don’t think I could give up my chocolate one.  I don’t like messing with tradition 🙂
