Happy Friday! I thought I would theme today’s Friday favorites post around advent calendars for everyone. I got a really cool (and educational!) advent calendar for Finn last year and we both looked forward to each day’s new surprise. Now is the time to order your advent calendar so that you’re ready to kick off the fun on December 1!
