counting down the days til Christmas

Jeremy's mom started a fun tradition a few years ago. She wraps up 25 presents and brings them over on December 1st. And we the kids open one each day until Christmas arrives.

When the girls were younger, they would alternate opening the gift each day. This year, Delaney is really getting into this present opening. In fact, after opening the gift on day 2, I found day 4's gift unwrapped as well. It happened to be for her. Do you think she knew before she opened it?

So here's the loot so far...

Day 1 - advent calendar with chocolate hidden behind the doors
Day 2 - snowman shirt for Nate
Day 3 - personalized Christmas ornaments for Bri and Alli
Day 4 - Dora Christmas hoodie
Day 5 - Christmas bingo game
Day 6 - Christmas candy jar

I wonder what will be next...
