An Intentional Christmas
In an effort to have more holiday fun as a family and keep from getting lost in the hustle and bustle of the season, this year I am celebrating by doing Christmas activities each day until Christmas. We will do our usual traditions and possibly create some meaningful new ones.
I surprised the kids with this idea today when they came home from school. They love it. Each day they will be surprised with an activity. Some days the activity will be simple and other days it will be more involved. Some days it will just be me and the kids (because my husband is working long hours during the holiday season) and other days it will be something that the whole family will enjoy together.
I will post about the activities, as I can. I am sure that I won't take pictures every day but I will post a list of what we do each day.
Day One: Enjoy a holiday treat and read the Christmas story.
We had a Christmas tree rice krispie treat, homemade hot chocolate, and candy canes. We had the Christmas story in Luke and from a Bible story book. Today we read the story from the story book and talked about some of details from the Bible.
