With the start of advent coming soon, I am reminded of the long season it will be until we are home for Christmas. There is often just as much excitement about the trek home to see family as the actual day of celebration. Here’s a simple advent idea to encourage the grandparents as they wait.

Fill manila envelopes with photos, colorings and special mementos from the kids. Use colorful label stickers to number the fronts and everyday their will be a new little gift awaiting them until they get to see your little gifts!
