 Advent Calendar: Day 7


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Ev’rywhere you go;
Take a look in the five and ten glistening once again
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.

I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month. – Harlan Miller

 Advent Calendar: Day 7


Living life as a mom on the run between races and raising three beautiful, brilliant children (ages 11, 7, 2). Before a blissful life as a SAHM, I taught elementary school for 7 years. In 2007, I discovered a passion for running. I'm currently training for a fourth marathon as well as a variety of other races and triathlons. In my spare time, I am the lead organizer for the Tampa Bay Bloggers on Facebook. I'm currently training for two marathons as well as a variety of other races and triathlons. From start to finish, I'm a mom on the run trying maintain an easy pace through it all.

    I love that idea!! Do you have something fun on every single day planned?! You are the best mom ever!

    • Run DMT says:

      You are so silly, but thank you for that! :-) Yes, there is something planned for each day leading up to Christmas. I leave some boxes empty just in case something comes up in the neighborhood. This year, Allana offered some activities that she like to do. Some activities are crafts. Other days include events around town like this. Our moms group Christmas party is also party of our Advent calendar.

    We did the same outing last year but I never thought incorporating it into our Advent calendar. Thank you for sharing your idea and your beautiful family.

  • Sara@MommaFindings says:

    How fun is that?! We have two advent calendars. One where we hang an ornament for every day and the other where we draw a personalized Biblical character with our thumbs (it’s cute), but I need something like this where they get a little prize and a sweet message. Awesome lights!
