I'm a little late getting this out, so going to do this quickly.
If you'd like to participate in DeBloAdMo, it's easy. Create an Activities Advent Calendar like the one below, and each day when you open your Advent Calendar, blog about what you have done. It's a good way to get blogging regularly, and it's a great way to spend the month of Christmas with your family! Add a piece of chocolate if you want, but the important thing is finding activities that will bring you and your family and friends closer together and get into the Christmas spirit.
Here is our Advent Calendar plans for the month:
1. Go to the Panto! Kick off December with Puss In Boots.
2. Check email for message from Santa. (www.portablenorthpole.com)
