Every one's favorite commenter, Shannon, emailed me this morning in her usual snarky fashion......something along the lines of......"cue the advent calendar blog post by case". Hmmm.....am I this predictable?
It seems so.
And, here it is.
I have lost count at how long we've been doing this, but I believe it started about 31 years ago. My big brother, Chris, brought home this hand-drawn calendar and my family has been full of coloring fools ever since. I've recreated it each year for our children and it's a big Starnes family tradition now. Color each day until Santa arrives......and we celebrate the birth of baby Jesus.
It's free.....it's easy......it's appropriate for all ages.......and it won't give your kids cavities. (***Coco, print this one out for sure).
Punkin Jack stayed on day 1 today. Proud of our little guy!
Baby Laine jumped ahead.....excused. She's only 2.
Feel free to print it out and share it with your kids. Find it here.
Oh, and save the comments on my artwork......it's a painful process, people......trying to draw these each year. I have ZERO artistic ability. Creativity? A bit. A natural talent for art? Absolutely none.
And, don't even get me started on how long it took me to learn how to scan this thing. Few things make me feel more ignorant than scanners and printers.
