I know I kinda just tossed Blogmas Day 1 at you yesterday, but did December 1st sneak up or what!? I feel like I just blinked and the year is gone! So to make the most out of the Holiday season, I thought it would be fun to share with you my Holiday Bucket List for 2016!
Daniel, of course, is way too little to fully appreciate Christmas this year but I can’t tell you how excited I am to go all out anyways! It’s not just that it’s his first Christmas or that it’s Gabriel’s first “more aware” Christmas, but I just feel it down to the depths of my soul that the little family I’ve established with my husband is finally complete, and this will be our first Christmas all together.
I am sooo excited to build a gingerbread house with Gabriel this year! I found a really cool one at Target for less than $10. It comes with some of Gabriel’s favorite candies like Peeps and Mike & Ikes and I though these would be fun to use as well!
Some other holiday treat essentials (at least for me) include:
- Drinking Eggnog
- Eating Fruitcake
- Baking Christmas Cookies
- and getting a soft baked pretzel at Target with my sister and drowning it in spicy cheese dip!
And then of course I’ll be making Oreo Truffles to give as gifts for co-workers. I’ll be sharing that during Blogmas as well.
I’m also super excited to watch ALL of the cheesy Halmark Movie Holiday releases with my mom! Last year she watched them from her home in Texas and me from mine here in Florida and we’d chat about them over the phone. But she’s here with us this year and we’ve already watched a couple!
Some other holiday movies I cannot live without include:
- National Lampoons Christmas Vacation
- A Christmas Story
- Home Alone
- The Grinch (the one with Jim Carrey)
- and The Muppet Christmas Carol
Gabriel has never sat and watched a full movie with me, but I’m excited to see how he’ll react to the Muppet’s and the Grinch 😀
And then of course there is all the obvious stuff like:
- Hanging the Stockings
- Santa Pictures
- Driving around to look at Christmas lights
- and making a colored paper chain garland
Well, there you have it! My Holiday Bucket List. What do you hope to get done before Christmas!?
