Today I Made a Little Christmas Bucket List.

I feel kind of like a lame mommy. 

I've been focusing on Christmas cards, advent calendars, handmade gifts of all sorts, cleaning, laundry and my ever growing, tired body. 

The girls have kind of been put on the back burner.  Aside from the nightly Christmas book we read and the occasional festive cookies I make, we haven't done anything fun and Christmas-y together. 

So - I've decided to make a little, no-pressure Christmas bucket list.  Things I'd like to do but won't kick myself over if they don't pan out. 

- Drive around a local neighbor with hot cocoa and enjoy all the home light displays.

- Take Ash Christmas shopping for Britt.

- Go up to the snow and sled for as long as the girls want.

(found on pinterest)

- Make a gingerbread house.

- Go caroling with my family.

- Pray for snow.

- Paint with Christmas cookie cutters.

- Play a Christmas memory car game.

- Make and play with Christmas play doh.

- Make these Christmas cookies

- Print, color, and put together a nativity.


- Make marshmallow snowmen.

I like all your ideas. When I was a kid (many moons ago) my Mom and Dad would take us around in the car to see all the lights. We didn't have the hot chocolate though.

You make me want to come over and hang out with you. You do so many fun things!

And we always take big mugs of hot cocoa on Christmas Eve and drive around to see lights!
