Can you believe it's almost December? Was it just me or did December go super fast? It's less than a week until we start the latest edition of the 25 days of Christmas. I cannot wait. The kids cannot wait.
So what do we have on deck for this year? I have no real idea. I really fly by the seat of my pants with this one. For me the 25 Days of Christmas isn't about doing 25 big crazy activities, but more about concentrated family time. I do have some tried and true favourites that I'll be trotting out again this year.
Colouring pages are still a big hit around here. And the girls love that we take the time to colour with them. We sip hot chocolate and giggle about silly things.
Our 25 days of Christmas instructions come via our Christmas Elf, Elwood who sometimes drops off books he borrowed from the North Pole library. We need to leave those books out for Santa on Christmas Eve so he can take them back to the North Pole with him.
We'll decorate a gingerbread house with Granny. Elwood leaves Granny instructions sometimes too!
There will be popcorn and Christmas movies. We'll eat waffles shaped like Christmas trees. Bake and deliver treats to the neighbours. There will definitely be some Christmas themed Charades. We'll wrap some presents, make some ornaments, decorate some gift bags. We'll drink hot chocolate floats and play roll-a-snowman. With this being the Year of Awesome... awesome seems to find us, so I'm excited to see what comes up that we can fill the gaps in with.
Do you do the 25 days of Christmas?
