Christmas Calendar - Reviving Traditions?

Christmas calendar. Made for ds when he was 3. Felt, sequins, glue and careful and tedious cutting of numbers, glue and velcro circles. Carefully following the pattern in the magazine. Trying to be a creative mommy. For years and years it was "December", the Christmas count down, something special and our very own family tradition. Sort of like the stockings I carefully made with felt decorations and the 'owner's' name. Our small family grew a bit, now have a dgs, ds, dh and self. Never did play out the way I dreamed, so I changed the dream to match reality. Best ever is having a dgs, never dreamed I could be so fortunate - or work so hard - to make the best life possible for another child.
