I'd like to share what we've been up to for the first half of the month:
1: Find Elfie & tell her what you'd like for Christmas
2-Pick out a Christmas movie, snuggle under a blanket, & watch it together
(no picture yet; they watched Frosty the Snowman)
3-Read "Twas the Night before Christmas"
4-Look at the ornaments on the Christmas tree, then have some hot chocolate.
**Disclaimer: I hadn't actually decorated the tree yet at this point, so we changed what it said to "Put the ornaments on the tree". It's so nice to have children who can't read!
5-Make a yummy Christmas cake.
6-Sing some Christmas carols--loudly!
7-Let's make a gingerbread house!
8-Roast marshmallows in the fireplace. Yummy!
9-Drive around & look at Christmas lights in your pajamas--snuggle up with your favorite blanket.
10-Have some Christmas candy! Enjoy!
11-Watch "The Santa Clause" & laugh together. Have some popcorn too!
12-Make Christmas popcorn. (This was supposed to be popcorn balls. However, I ended a LOT busier than intended so we were going to put Christmas sprinkles in popcorn. But life happened & we couldn't. Hats off to my mom for doing it for us while babysitting!)
13-Read Christmas stories together. (Note to self: buy more Christmas books!)
14-Make some Christmas cookies.
