My best friend, Jessica, wrote a blog listing everything she would like her little family to do this holiday season. Her own "advent" calendar of sorts. I loved the idea so I am aquiring it for myself :)
The holidays are so full of hustle and bustle. I want to stop and really enjoy the holidays. So if I get my way, here are things I want to do this holiday season. Some things listed are the same as Jess. Some have already been accomplished and some I would like to do.
1. Drive around and look at christmas lights
2. Decorate Christmas Cookies
3. Get kissed under mistletoe
4. Give to someone in need
5. Watch the Christmas classics: Rudolph, The Grinch, Frosty, The Peanuts etc
6. Send out Christmas cards to friends and family
7. Stand in the falling snow
8. Make a gingerbread house w/ my nieces and nephew
9. Vistit Christmas Card and Candy Cane Lanes
10. Sit w/ the lights out and only the Christmas tree lit.
11. Wrap christmas gifts adorned w/ beautiful ribbons and bows
12. Fulfill a Christmas wish for someone else
13. Be extra super-duper kind to every person working retail during the holidays. Even if they aren't the friendliest to me.
