Also there is some journaling hidden inside which says:

How I count down the days……………

I’ve had an advent calendar every year since I can remember, except now I buy my own! This year we have three advent calendars.

I have a Winnie the Pooh chocolate advent (it was that, Ben 10, Hannah Montana or High School Musical!).

Steve has a kinder chocolate advent – which has kind of become a tradition as he had one last year! – As it is his favourite chocolate.

Now that we have Adam, we naturally have to have a third advent! But because he is only 3 months old he has a perennial calendar that has a movable candy cane and later when he is older I can put a little chocolate in the pockets.
