Doing Christmas-related things with the kids, all together as a family, turned out to be harder than I thought. Luke is in school during the day, the mister has to work, and the evenings are just crazy with homework, after-school activities, mom and dad’s workouts and baby G’s naps and sleepy time. I’m not going to give up, though. Even if it is just me a baby G, or me and Luke, or the mister and the kids, etc, we are going to have our countdown to Christmas! So far this is what we’ve done:
Dec, 1: Luke wrote Santa a letter.
Dec, 2: Baby G and I hit a Holiday Boutique for some Christmas shopping.
Dec, 3: Luke and I went to see our town’s Annual Tree Lighting.
Dec, 4: We all went to the mall to see Santa. We didn’t take any pictures, though. The line was insane!
Dec, 5: Luke hung our Christmas wreath on the front door.
Dec, 6: We started with some Christmas decorations.
Dec, 7: We continue with more Christmas decorations. We were supposed to put up our Christmas lights but it rained all day long.
Dec, 8: I bought a tiny (faked) Christmas tree and Luke placed it in the Living Room. Since we are not spending Christmas here, we decided not to get a real big tree.
I have more activities lined up for the following days. Hopefully they’ll go as planned.
If we were to spend this Christmas in NY, I’d have chosen gold to decorate. I love how it looks glamorous and feels cozy at the same time.
