The Christmas season is here and I want to make sure that my family has a wonderful season of fun and making memories. The past years I have had many things I wanted to do but just didn’t get around to so this year I have made our family a Christmas “to-do” list. I figure if it’s written down there is more of a chance we will do the things instead of just thinking about them.
Here are the things I’d like to do this Christmas season:
*Throw a birthday party for Jesus
*Go to the zoo to see their lights display
*Make our Advent ornaments daily
*Put together a Gingerbread Train
*Give the boys new Christmas pajamas
*Drive around town looking at Christmas lights
*Donate money to Salvation Army bell ringers
*Bake (and decorate) cookies together
*Make some Christmas crafts to hang on the walls
*Wrap gifts for others
*As a family choose a gift from World Vision’s gift catalog to give
*Make Christmas cards for our loved ones
*Send a letter to Santa
*Mail a Christmas card to a soldier
*Get together with family to celebrate the Holidays
*Paint wooden ornaments for our tree
*Get family Christmas pictures taken.
*Have a Christmas movie marathon in our pjs
*Read a Christmas themed book every night before bed
*Make “reindeer food”
*Leave cookies and milk out for Santa
*Get a family dough ornament made
*Go downtown Chicago to look at decorated window displays
*Go to the light show at our local outdoor mall
*Play in the snow and then come inside to drink hot chocolate
*Donate food to a local food pantry
*Make paper chain garland for the tree
*Make a snowman
*Move the Elf On A Shelf to a new place everyday and find him as a family
*Eat chocolate from our Advent calendars

I posted my list on my blog, check it out.
Your Christmas list is great. The top thing in my shopping list is to buy holiday pajamas for my kids. I bought flannel pajamas for my husband from SleepyHeads.com. I really liked their collection. Thinking to buy family matching pajamas for my kids from SleepyHeads.com.
