  1. Kelly, this is such a cute idea! My boys would love this and considering every year, I think about doing an advent calendar only to end up resorting to those “cheapest chocolate ever” calendars! And I have the ball jars already…score! 😉

  2. You’re such a cool and creative Mom, Kelly! Love this idea and how pretty the red and blue are together. I’m sure your girls are more than ready to start removing candy canes or seeing that their other goodie is! Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. This is so dadgummed cute, what a great way to make use of those blue ball jars. Will be lots of fun for your kids to find out what the surprise is everyday. Happy Thanksgiving
