So, I LOVE Christmas, and I USUALLY totally over commit myself, and set myself up for failure and exhaustion (is anyone surprised at this?) This year, I’m hoping to keep it fun and my plans realistic. (For example, in years past, I would have a gingerbread house party, making parts for 8-10 gingerbread houses and having friends over to decorate them. This year, I’m keeping it real and just making one or two with my boys).
I’m going to make a list of the stuff I really like to do with the kids, but it’s looking a little bare…do you have any fun family activities you’d like to share so I can make the list longer?
- Trim the tree
- Make new wreath
- Make new garland
- Make Christmas cookies
- Make gingerbread houses
- Watch The Grinch (original, none of this Jim Carrey stuff)
- Liam’s holiday concert
- Watch Rudolph
- Trombone Christmas Carols
- Christmas eve tradition: watch A Christmas Story
I’m learning how to import and add widgets to my blog…the 1st thing I’m tweaking is the category clouds. I love the 3-d one (that says “I’m Babbling About” at the top), but it requires flash to work – did you have any problems with it? Do you find it annoying?
