24 Days of Christmas

Tyson's cute mom thought up this idea to do 24 days of christmas for Zach and Brooklyn. She sent this huge box full of sacks for each day and a little toy or prize for them to open every day in December.
As you can see it takes up a nice little piece of their room and they love it.
They come into my room as soon as they wake up every morning and beg for me to come in and take down the bag. It's a good thing they are up so high so the kids can't reach them. Each bag also has candy in it. So that makes for a lovely little 7 a.m. sugar high! Thank you Omaha Grandma and Papa!
