I’m really getting into the holiday this year (maybe because the sleep exhaustion of a new born is fading!). I made Alex an advent calendar and am really looking forward to the next 26 days. I used red and white striped bags from Etsy seller In The Clear ($7.50 for 50 bags) and stick on numbers from Staples. Inside the bags are a variety of small toys and stickers. Most of the toys came from a great used toy and book sale in Westchester of all places. I think I spent $5 dollars on the toys and $5 on stickers.
