25 days of Christmas

For the last two years, I have come up with fun things to do for each day leading up to Christmas.  I put them on a cute card and label the envelopes 1-25. Each day there is an activity that we can do together to get in the Christmas Spirit.

Here are the ideas for this year:
-Ride around the neighborhood and look at Christmas lights while drinking a hot beverage (mine will probably be mother's milk tea...see last post)

-Go see Santa

- Make hand-made gifts for grandparents

- Go see the Nutcracker (we'll be leaving Benson at home for this one).  This is the performance at Georgia College December 12, 13, 14.

- Watch Christmas movies (this is usually more than one day)

- Read Christmas books (I need to put some on hold at the library- suggestions welcome)

- Shop for someone we adopted for Christmas

- Make ornaments (all you do is fill a clear ornament with marshmallows and decorate the outside)

- Make Christmas trees out of paper rings

- Callaway Gardens drive through lights- the groupon is over in 7 hours (

- Christmas parade in Jones County (December 9th)

- Bake / decorate cookies

- Deliver a special something to the neighbors
- Make reindeer hands 
- make a marshmallow snowman Marshmallow Snowman

- Lake Wildwood boat ride and Christmas lights (another one we may need to leave Benson at home for, but we'll see)- they have not released the information for this year, but here is the website for when they do post the dates

- Gray UMC Drive-thru nativity (free hot chocolate- date is TBA)

- Make Gingerbread Houses

-breakfast with mommy and buy gifts for daddy.

- breakfast with daddy and buy gifts for mommy.

- chick-fil-a on Tom Hill to drive-thru lights

I only need 3 more, but they will probably either be a book, a movie or another craft!

What do you have planned for December?
