A Christmas Bucket List

by - November 24, 2013

Tomorrow marks exactly one month until Christmas, and though it's beginning to rear it's beautiful face in small touches around my house I am in no way ready.

And so, in an attempt at being proactive I gathered the kids and together we came up with our Christmas Bucket List - all the things we want to do before the Big Day.

A lot of fun awaits!

We shall:
  1. Deck our halls!
  2. Sing Christmas songs.
  3. Bake cookies.
  4. Go tobogganing.
  5. Read the Nativity Story
  6. Go skating.
  7. Decorate the tree.
  8. Eat figgy pudding (Zander insisted on this one - I don't think he really knows what he's asking!)
  9. Write to Santa.
  10. Take treats to the neighbours
  11. Watch ELF (also LOVE ACTUALLY but that doesn't include the kids yet).
  12. Make snow angels.
  13. Drink hot chocolate (with whipped cream and sprinkles, of course).
  14. Snuggle by the fire.
  15. Build a big snowman.
  16. Read 'How The Grinch Stole Christmas'
  17. Put eggnog in our coffee.
  18. Decorate a gingerbread house.
  19. Have a snowball fight.
  20. Make homemade ornaments.
Let the countdown begin!

  1. Neat. Can I come to your house to celebrate? (tongue in cheek, of course). Sounds delightful.

    1. I think I have a very full month ahead of me...AND we've already thought of things we forgot on the list...Santa Claus Parade...winter bonfire...catching snowflakes on our tongues...

  2. You're missing "watch A Christmas Story". Rookie mistake.

    1. Can I be completely lame and admit that I don't even know what 'A Christmas Story' is? I had to google it. I feel I have a good excuse though...growing up without a tv caused me to miss out on a lot of these and I'm still catching up all these years later

    2. lameness = revoked

    3. You need to watch that movie. It's a classic
