Hello Friends! I am slighlty off my blogging schedule thanks to computer issues. Boo. It’s crazy how dependent we can become on technology.
We’ve been doing the Busy thing again. Sport practices. Working. Creating. Holidays. So many blessings and things to be thankful for. I am way behind this year. Usually I am DONE shopping by November!!! This year I only have 1 gift purchased so far. I hope to change that today and get a lot done. With lots to juggle somehow my holiday shopping fell through my hands. I’m excited to get back on track today and also come up with my holiday calendar.
I love to make a list of all of the fun activities we do as a family and schedule those in on my special holiday calendar. I had purchased it from Hallmark a few years ago but basically it’s just a blank calendar of November & December dedicated to festive events.
Some of the things we do annually is of course watch Christmas movies with popcorn and pizza. I try to schedule those on Friday evenings. Hot cocoa is a must with lots of whipped cream!
There is the finding the real tree and of course the decorating. Wrapping presents and driving around to see all of the holiday lights. My mom & sisters & I get together with our kiddos for a special holiday party early on in the season for baking as well as crafts and fun for the kids. On my husbands side we always make gingerbread houses. This year we have a grandma coming in from California for the holidays so it will be extra special. Another grandma and I go shopping together every year. There are so many fun ways to make the season merry & bright. What are some of your holiday traditions?
I am excited to get started and to hear from you for fresh ideas to add magic to Christmas!Comments are welcome!
