Christmas star countdown

Just hopping in to share with you a fun thing our family is doing to count down to Christmas. 
I know lots of people have fun advent traditions, or creative activities to do every night in December. I'm sure one day we'll work up to those things but for now we have 3 little kids & 2 busy parents so this is perfect for us!  A sweet lady shared this tradition with us at our last MOPS meeting, and I was so excited to start this with our boys.

"Twinkle twinkle Christmas star
Show how many days there are
Every night as I go to bed
Take off one loop after prayers are said
When only You are left to shine
I'm so glad Jesus came to be mine!"

Sean takes off the chain on the red nights, Nolan on the green. They love it!
