I've never kept track of what we did each day for our 25 days of Christmas celebration quite as well as I am this year. There are no guarantees that everything will get posted in a timely manner, but I'm not doing too terribly so far. Here is what kept us busy the past two days.
On Day 4 we intended to go to a festival in Canal Winchester. Unfortunately, it became apparent early in the day for many reasons that this wasn't going to happen, so I pulled out one of our craft ideas. I recently discovered in a Five in a Row December supplement that pomander balls were a traditional, Victorian Christmas ornament. What's a pomander ball? An orange with cloves stuck into it and ribbons tied around it so that it can hang. It smells heavenly!!! Here's the pic I took today (this ended up being a 2 day project):
Day 5 was today. We try to keep Sundays pretty simple around here. We often have movie nights. Today was no exception. We watched The Santa Clause. My kids had been asking to watch it, and we had fun watching it with them. As an added bonus, we also watched Rudolph, my favorite Christmas cartoon. It's unusual for us to watch that much t.v. in one day, but we split it up by watching one in the afternoon and one over dinner. It was a very relaxing afternoon and evening!
What memory making activities are you doing this month? I'd love to hear your ideas, and maybe I'll even get around to using them!
