An Advent Calendar Christmas

I love advent calendars almost as much as I love opening the mail. I look forward to each day when I get to reach inside and pull out a little surprise. Last year, I got ambitious and decided to make my own. I found a kit online that came with 25 mini boxes that were precut. All I had to do was fold them up and stick a cute little sticker on the inside of each one:

Next, I stuffed them all with fun little gifts:

And I was all done! I sent them to family members as part of their Christmas gifts. I can't wait to share this tradition with my kids!

Do you open advent calendars in December? What other fun holiday traditions do you have?

World's Largest Stamp Gallery

I wish I could go to this! The grand opening of the new William H. Gross Stamp Gallery at the Smithsonian's National Postal Museum is Sunday, September 22nd. It is the world's largest stamp gallery and the only one to show stamps and mail in the context of American history and culture.

 Among display will be like a cover postmarked on the moon in 1971, and a watch worn by a sea clerk aboard Titanic. You'll be able to see a letter addressed to John Hancock postmarked July 4, 1776 and the world famous Inverted Jenny, along with other stamps from America and around the world.

 Lots of fun for the whole family too! Check out the list of awesome activities for kids. There's everything from a Bugs Bunny meet and greet to a scavenger hunt. Ben Franklin will also be there himself to pose for pictures. Anyone out there planning on attending this?
