I am a crazy Christmas lady and I don’t care who knows it!!!!
I am the person that wears Christmas tree earrings and jingle bell bracelets. I would wear more Christmas shirts, but then I cross over into the realm of ugly sweater lady….and that’s just not good. But when I’m 80, you know I’ll be wearing those Christmas vests with pride! ha!
Even though Eleanor is too young to really do many Christmas festivities this year, I have still been wanting to start a bunch of new traditions with her.
Here is my Christmas Festivities List this year:
Get a real Christmas tree- check
Get new family stockings with our names- check (tim & I’s say mom & dad!!!! :) )
Go to the Springfield Christmas Parade
Put up outside lights- in progress
Take a family Christmas card picture- Check
Decorate E’s room- check
Decorate ornaments for the tree
Make sugar cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve
Read the Christmas story in Luke as a family on Christmas Eve
Take E to see Santa at Bass Pro
Have a baking day
Drive around with cocoa as a family looking at lights in our city
Make a hand & foot print of E for a Christmas craft
Watch our favorite movies and have a yummy dinner as a family
Try a new cookie recipe
Deliver some surprise treats to a family in need
Drink sparkling grape juice by the light of the tree with husband
Get Eleanor the Fisher-Price nativity set
And that’s all I can think of right now! ha! And obviously we won’t get to all those things this year. But they are all things I would love to do. I love starting new traditions!
Do you have a special tradition with your family? (that I can steal from you!) :)
Merry Christmas Friends!
