25 days of Christmas

I love starting new family traditions and Miss Fish's 25 Days of Christmas challenge was right up my alley. Thanks to other participants like A little bit of momsense, Turtlehead and Some Kind of Wondermom, I didn't even have to do much thinking to come up with my list, which is REALLY up my alley right now.

Here's our list. I totally reserve the right to change dates as I see fit and I can't wait to post pictures of the calendar Kiernan and I have been working on making!

1 Put up Xmas lights in windows
2. Cut out paper snowflakes to decorate the windows.
3. Write and mail a letter to Santa
4. Listen to Holiday music
5. Make a paper snowman for the wall. Play ‘pin the face on the snowman’
6. Buy a toy and bring it to Toy Mountain.
7. Bake gingerbread cookies
8. Read Christmas stories at bedtime.
9. Put up more Christmas decorations
10. Make Christmas cards for your friends.

Paper snowflakes! Donating toys! My heart clenches with ...with something. I can't wait until my babies are old enough for this stuff. I love your list.
