A Christmas idea

We don't usually do the "Advent" thing, but this year I'd like to try something similar.  Or maybe it's not super similar since I don't know much about it.

First, I gather some intelligence from my crew.  What are some of their favorite things about Christmas?  Good thing I asked them.  I already had a list of quite a few things, but I didn't have some very special ones - sledding and snowball fights.  Oh my!  How could I have missed such important activities???  And this year maybe all of us can get in on it and I won't be able to use having a baby as an excuse.

So I gathered a list of about 15 things:
  • Sledding
  • Snowball fights
  • Decorate the house (outside) with lights
  • Christmas cards
  • Christmas movie
  • Go see lights
  • Caroling
Then for another 15, I have practical things that we always give our kids at Christmas time - socks, pajamas, brush, soap, shampoo, books and cds are included in this list. 

Then I took popsicle sticks and wrote on them

We'll pick one out everyday - there are some things that I want on certain days - for example, I'd rather bake cookies on a day when the school kids are home for that project, so those will be done on Fridays.  Decorating the house (outside) with lights will be done on the 1st when we are already on ladders with the siding project. 

Have fun thinking of a way to make Christmas fun instead of crazy!!!!
