Christmas Countdown To-Do List

Thursday, December 12, 2013

 Instagram photo of Max getting caught stealing more ornaments off our tree.  I found a whole stash in his closet haha!

TWWWWOO weeks till Christmas...said in a man's train conductor voice.  I just shouted that out in my living room and my family looked at me like I'm a big weirdo, which may be accurate.  But yes the Christmas season is in full swing and I want to ENJOY and soak it up because before we know it we will be seeing New Year's Eve pins on Pinterest and people will start talking about spring 2014 clothing trends.

So I have compiled a little list of a few festive things that I plan on doing before Christmas is here.

1. Go see a Christmas light show in our local neighborhood.  There is one not too far from us and when you get in the car you put on the coordinating station that goes with all the lights.  I can't wait to do this and see the boy's faces.

2. Take a trip up to the snow and take the boys sledding.

3. Anonymously give to a family in need.

4. Figure out a delicious meal to make on Christmas Eve.  I need suggestions!

5. Decorate sugar cookies with the boys.

6. Go on an ice skating date with my husband.

7. Watch It's a Wonderful Life and The Christmas Story.  My two favorite Christmas movies.

8. Make a new holiday inspired adult cocktail and make gingerbread houses with the kids.  Okay maybe those two things shouldn't go together but in our house that's usually how we roll.

9. Dress up like Mrs. Claus after the kids go to bed.  Ha ha kidding just seeing if you are paying attention...but I am sure my husband wouldn't mind that ;) 

10. I have ALWAYS wanted to set up a treaure hunt, so this year I want to organize a fun around the house treasure hunt for my husband's main gift.  He will be so annoyed and I will love every minute of it.

Do you have any Christmas time things you love to do?  I would love to hear!

We watched a beautiful light show last weekend! I want to see another one soon! I am looking for good meals as well! I really want a great Christmas breakfast! Do you have any breakfast ideas?

Allison said...

We always drive around while dressed in our jammies and look at Christmas lights. We also bake cookies and share with friends and family.

Great list! Jennifer

That's a full lineup of fun, fun, fun! :)
I made Peppermint Martinis last night. They had some serious kick, but they were yummy.
What's the main gift? I'm stuck this year. My hub's is super hard to buy for.

I definitely want to go ice skating! I've never been. Gotta watch A Christmas Story, The Grinch (original), and Charlie Brown Christmas. Ps. I love your mug! Starbucks? They've got some great ones right now.

See this is why I love you and your little blog so much. I literally LOLed at number 10. sounds exactly like something I would love to do with Matt and he would be so irritated, but oh my goodness...so worth it. Also we clearly roll the same way as you do..because gingerbread houses and adult cocktails go wonderfully together in our house. Pretty much anything with adult cocktails goes wonderfully in our house really. ;) Enjoy the season, Lindsay!!!

Yikes!!! Where has December gone??!! Christmas must be extra fun with the kiddos :) I get to see my little cousins this year which always makes the holiday feel more magical!! Anyways...tangent!! Something I have always wanted to do - that I am determined to accomplish this year - is to go to a beautiful church and listen to a Christmas choir. (like in Home Alone...lol ;)) Your list sounds pretty great! Have a lovely weekend!! XO

great list- we decorate cookies, go to the Trail of Lights (in Austin TX), drive around one night with cocoa and see lights while playing Christmas music, watch all the classic movies. **Question about #9: sexy lingerie Mrs Claus or Grandma Mrs. Claus?! LOL I THINK I know which one!

My family has always done chicken and/or beef fondue on Christmas Eve. Everyone always has a ton of fun cooking the food together at dinner!
