I remember the excitement I used to get from popping open the little cardboard door on my childhood advent calendar and discovering the candy surprise that awaited.  The little things like that are what create the ”magic” of the holiday season for kids.  I wanted to recreate that magic for B in a creative way. So, I got busy [...]
