25 Days of Christmas

This December, for the first time, I decided to do a Christmas activity each day from Dec 1-25. Our 25 Days of Christmas was wonderful. It helped me focus on the important things during the Christmas season. I didn't get caught up in the busyness. Our Christmas season was intentional. The kids loved the activities - and so did my husband and I.

Here are the final days of our Christmas countdown.

Day 19: Ice Sugar cookies and take some to our neighbors. We made snowman faces and Christmas trees.

These cookies are amazing. I got the recipe from a friend when my husband was stationed in Virginia, almost 10 years ago. Here's the recipe: Festive Iced Cookies

Day 20: Make teacher gifts. The kids loved making their teacher gifts this year.

Day 21: Eat snowman ice cream.

Day 22: Go to a Christmas movie (Arthur Christmas).

Day 23: Read the Christmas story and memorize a Bible verse (Luke 2:11).

Day 24: Attend a Christmas Eve service at church.

Day 25: Family time... Open Christmas presents, Eat a Christmas cake for dessert after dinner, and make our Gingerbread house.

Yay, I'm so glad you enjoyed yourselves. That is the exact reason I work so hard to do our socks every year.
