Holiday Bucket List

This year since the bambinos are almost two, I wanted to try and do as many holiday / winter things as we could this Christmas season.  I want to start creating some family traditions and it is SO fun to see their little faces get all excited about something new and magical.  I found a Winter Bucket List on pinterest that I thought could be a start for some fun and exciting things to do with the kids.  I've added a few of my own ideas on it.  Here are some things we have done and others that we are trying to get to before Christmas gets here (which is fast approaching, by the way).

1.  Elf on the Shelf.  I LOVE this tradition.  If you don't know this story, you can check it out here. At first, I wasn't sure if the kiddies would really get into it this year, but they have!  We named our elf Dobby, and they get SO excited when they find him in the morning in a new spot.  Of course, they don't really get why Dobby is there and what he is doing, but it's still exciting.

2.  Bake and decorate Christmas cookies

3.  Go to see Santa.

4.  Decorate the Christmas tree as a family.

5.  Go ice skating

6.  Make / decorate a Gingerbread house

7.  Give a gift / toy to a child in need.

8.  Go for a carriage ride.

9.  See the Nutcracker

10.  Make fireplace s'mores.

11.  Watch Christmas movies

12.  Write a letter to Santa

13.  Make Reindeer Food

14.  Leave cookies and milk out for Santa.

15.  Go look at Christmas lights.

16.  Drink hot chocolate with marshmallows

17.  Go to a Christmas program / play

18.  Get new Christmas jahmmies

19.  Go see a live Nativity

20.  Read the story of Jesus' birth from the Bible.

I'll be posting some pictures and stories of our adventures of our Bucket List!

Much love,
