Advent Season: Team Pancakes' Version


The 21st, 2011
4 more sleeps until Christmas morning!
Mr. Pancakes and i have NOT done that well with the tasks on our Advent Calendar 
however we have been doing the best we think. 
 I believe if we had children, they would definitely keep us accountable 
BUT i never realized how difficult it is to accomplish specific tasks daily.
Now i know how bloggers feel when they have to complete the daily challenges!
Remember, during Advent, we emphasize hope, peace, joy, and love, which God sent with Christ.
HOPE 
PEACE 
JOY 
LOVE 
In an effort to practice and live all these...Team Pancakes and i have been working on these tasks.
Look here for days 2-7
Day 8: Choose one: Scrabble, slow dance, scripture
Day 9: Drinks and CD Night
Day 10: Relax+What do you Love about each other?
Day 11: Read the Baby Jesus Story 
Day 12: Share funny stories
Day 13: Write a letter to each other, read it at work next day
Day 14: Who is Your Role Model and why?
Day 15: Share a Childhood memories
Day 16: Random Acts of Kindness
Day 17: Share Your Favorite Scripture
Day 18: Use THE book
Day 19: Work Out Together
Day 20: Read the Bible Together

Hope you are all doing better on your Advent Calendar tasks than us.
Anywho, have an awesome Wednesday!

We did an advent calendar one year when I was a kid. I would like to try doing a 365 one next with my family. Having something to do everyday as a family helps to increase a sense of unity and love.

Heather said...

I love the idea of an Advent calendar! Maybe we'll do one next year!

Faith said...

so awesome that the two of you are doing this ... at least you are attempting to do it so that should count for something :)

Carlie said...

I didn't know you were doing an advent calendar thing! I am going to have to try this with my husband even if Christmas is only 4days away maybe I can do it in January! haha. I like all the things on the list.

We are moving so slow this Christmas...we just put up our tree yesterday! At least you two are trying and are laying a foundation for many Christmases to come.

Breanna said...

Love the things on your advent calendar :)

Can't believe Christmas is already 4 days away!

Oh, that's just beautiful! I love that you're creating traditions together! What's "THE" book?

jessica said...

I love the idea of writing each other notes and then reading them at work the next day because 1)I love handwritten things and 2)that helps make the day a little bit sweeter!

Great ideas! Me and hubs might have to try and cross some of these off the list! Love your blog.

Rosemary@villabarnes said...

Great list. Thanks so much for visiting my blog, and following. I'm following back. So glad you found me, so I could find you. Love your blog.

How cute! I love your task.. I never really thought about doing an adventure calendar with the hubby I always figured it was one of those things you have to do with your kids.

Sandy a la Mode said...

TheProDiva said...

These posts are really making me want to keep an advent calendar next year. I haven't done one since I was in high school, and you are reminding me how much fun it is to keep one. Congrats on taking the time to do this with your hubby!

Lisa C said...

Yes, you are absolutely right. Children will keep you accountable and in many ways than not it has been a huge contribution in my life. I'm definitely a better me because of them.
