I am not trying to skip over Thanksgiving. Don't you worry. I love a day dedicated to recounting your blessings and expressing your gratitude to those who have touched your life. I am just trying to prepare for the days ahead.
This will be C and I's first Christmas as a family! So exciting! We are starting to work on our Christmas traditions and what we would like to include in our 25 days of Christmas. We have a few:
-I have had this self made tradition going on for a while now. I watch a Christmas movie from the day after Thanksgiving until New Years. If you are wondering, yes there are that many Christmas movies and yes they are all amazing! Love them!
-We are going to get matching PJs to wear Christmas Eve. I am a little bit too excited about this mostly just because C refuses to match people. When we go on mission trips and all have matching shirts, C is the one who wears a different shirt the day we are supposed to wear them. The fact that he is willing to have matching PJs with me for Christmas Eve tells me that boy seriously loves me.
-We are going to write notes to each other... we have not decided if it will be every day or once a week... and put them in our stockings. Then Christmas day we get to read all of the notes we wrote.
-We are going to have a Christmas date where we go to dinner and see a new Christmas movie in theatres.
Here's the deal, we need some help! I want to hear all about your families traditions. We have a little snowman with a 25 day countdown to Christmas and we need some ideas to fill it. I know everyone loves their family's traditions so please share! I am excited to hear about them! Once we have a big list of our final traditions, I will most definitely be sharing them with you all! Maybe we can all give each other some new inspiration on how to spend this holiday truly giving back and dedicating time to our family rather than getting caught up in focusing on what we are receiving.
