I have since learned from experience that doesn't quite work for our little family. I do, however, still make a little modified advent calendar for us to complete together. We still do a little something together each night (or possibly something big together over the weekend), I just don't assign a specific task for a specific day. Life just sometimes has different ideas and I enjoy the flexibility of being able to choose what works for us at that given time.
