2013 Christmas List

Every year, we sit down and make a December List. I know some people like to plan their activities on an Advent Calendar, but it just stresses me out to think that I have to do something on a certain day. Here’s all that we dreamed of doing during the 2013 Christmas season and what actually happened.

Activities Completed
refrigerator snowman
make nativity – all the kids colored one nativity
birthday cake countdown
snowman craft page –  This year, Schäfer refused to color one.
back-lit photo at tree
moose hands/feet
make ornaments
mail cards
watched: Buck Denver, Snoopy & European Christmas

Things we passed on this year:
paint a Christmas tree – Nanamaw had them color a tree that she sketched. I loved it.

food – I did not make my Grandmaw’s chicken and dressing because we had so many leftovers from our Christmas Eve gathering.

mincemeat pie – We bought the mincemeat, but did not make it into a pie

wassel – We wanted to make this merry beverage, but did not.

eggnog – Hubs picked up a carton from the grocery store.

cinnamon rolls – I always want to make them for Christmas morning, but never seem to get it together.

gingerbread house – we made the gingerbread dough and purchased all the candies, but NEVER made the houses. Ugh! We wanted to do that activity on Christmas Day, but we were too tired. We rolled the dough into logs and turned them into slice and bakes.

Advent countdown books – all of our books are in China so we missed opening one each day.

Despite the fact that we did not accomplish everything on our Christmas list, we still had a very Merry Christmas in America!
