Tis Christmas Time!

photo from last year

If you know me at all, you know I love lists.

Love them. I do.

We made an advent calendar and the countdown has officially begun. Here is what Id love to share with my family this season:

Go Ice Skating
Make Christmas Cookies for friends
Hang Mistletoe and kiss under it
Make a new Christmas Music Mix (yes, I said mix)
Watch the Nutcracker - I wish in a theater all dressed up, but probably on DVD for free
Make Homemade marshmallows for our hot chocolate
Display our christmas cards and talk about all the people who love us (you better send us one!)
Donate. Donate. Donate.
Make a Gingerbread house and train
Make popcorn garland - maybe cranberries too
Drive around to see lights (already done this!)
Go to a tree lighting
Eat by candlelight
Spend a day in NYC soaking up all the city holiday goodness
See the lights at the zoo
Visit Santa
Write letters to Santa
Read the Night Before Christmas
Make a whole basket of Christmas Books and rotate weekly from the library
Make ornaments for ourselves and others
Look at our photo books from years past
Make paper chains
Christmas craft with wild abandon
Have some peaceful, quiet time with just us

Do you think I...we..can do it? Even if we don't, we'll have fun trying!

Where I got some ideas
