We LOVE advent calendars here at the Butler home! We have 3 of them (two of which involve eating candy). It is definitely a highlight of our day!
We each have our own $1 chocolate countdown calendar:
We take turns taking off the life savers on this advent calendar (which I grew up with and my mom just gave to us!)
And we got this one as a wedding gift but it is just too cute, I just don't dare open it :)
