Family Happenings

25 Days of Family Christmas Activities

The winter months are super fun and super busy around here.  Bryson’s birthday is in December, we have several family functions, a few holiday parties, a New Year’s party, and then comes my dad’s and Bella’s birthday in January.  So, I may be absolutely out of my mind for putting together this list of 25 activities for the month of December.  Just maybe.  Even if we miss a few, I had a lot of fun coming up with ideas for  our list and I know that we’ll enjoy quality family time all during the month.  You’ll notice that some are simple like “watch a Christmas movie” and then some involve going places, doing crafts, and a few are food related.  I hope you’ll grab a few ideas from my list and come up with some of your own too!

Christopher Pop-In-Kins will also be visiting us throughout the end of November and during December.  I’m sure he’ll find some great hiding places and have a little bit of fun while we are sleeping.  In fact, I’ll bet his actions will be worthy of weekly blog posts!

So, what is on YOUR “to-do list” this holiday season?
