This is my son starting off the advent calendar countdown to Christmas for 2009! His sisters are both out of town, so he is doing theirs for them too.
These calendars the kids have used every Christmas since 1989.

Show off your calendar and lets see how everyone counts down in the final 24 days til Christmas!!!

I have that exact same one! I got it in Avon over 20 years ago and love it!

Here's the one I use at home. I love it! You pull out the "boards" in the chimney and Santa starts sliding down the chimney! I got it about 10 years ago from my Secret Santa at school.

These two are at school. You've seen the Avon one. I had to have the bear one. I think I got it at Target one year. It's a "Build-a-Bear" calendar. You take the ornaments off each day...well, that's what we've done. I guess we really should be putting them on. Oooops!

Maebeary, that last one looks familiar!! I love the Santa down the chimney one, and the bear is so cute!
Thanks for sharing the pictures.

I hope more will share. I've also got the Wii game "We Wish You A Merry Christmas." I've been checking that as something new unlocks each day. My 24 year old daughter was with me last night when I unlocked a new elf hunt page. She got excited! We HAD to do it right away. I will say it was fun doing it with someone!

And, my daughter, son and I each have our own advent calendar with chocolate pieces!
