Advent Activities 2013

Ah, it's December! When did that happen? Less than three weeks until my son turns four and I am hoping I am organised enough to pull off his birthday and Christmas.

We put up the Advent countdown yesterday and someone was very excited.

I thought I would share the list of what we have planned this Christmas for our Advent activities. A bold number indicates a weekend. A lot of these are quite personal as we have a lot of family and friend's birthdays, as well as some events that are invite only, but it is always fun to see what people are up to over the holiday season.

I have linked activities from other websites where applicable.

I am sharing some photos from the events we have already done since I was a bit behind in getting this post up.
