Holiday Bucket List

Thanksgiving week is here, and I am ready for the holiday season to begin! The bigger my littles become, the more fun I think the holidays are, and I am very excited about doing many fun holiday things. I made a little holiday bucket list, so that I would not forget something in the holiday bustle. (Last year, I forgot that I had already bought Christmas cards the year before on sale...what a happy surprise this year to find them.) And so, here it is...

Dmitri's holiday cards that he has been working so hard on creating!

Fun with roving!

Caroline’s Holiday Bucket List

-Make homemade hot cocoa (and it was so easy and delicious, we have made it twice this week!)
-Watch a Christmas movie with the family
-Apple. Cider.
-Hang a star in the window
-Mail Christmas cards to friends and family
-Hang a holiday wreath
-See Christmas lights!
-Make Gingerbread Houses (I think I'm going to try Rice Crispy Treat houses with my favorite peanut butter & brown rice syrup recipe)
-Sugar cookies. A Christmas tradition. (I use this recipe).
-Create snow globes with Dmitri (there are a million tutorials on Pinterest)
-Put the very first present under the tree the day we get our Christmas tree  (The book: Mr. Willoughby’s Christmas Tree. That way, we can read it all holiday season long. And it's such a cute book.)
-Hang stockings by the fireplace
-New Christmas pajamas and a special Christmas book: our Christmas Eve tradition
-Cinnamon rolls for breakfast on Christmas morning!

What are you excited about this holiday season? Any favorite Christmas movies you would recommend? Favorite traditions?

I came across a tutorial to make one's own home-made bath bombs and I thought of you! Is that something you'd be interested in experimenting with and writing about? :)

I love that snowflake art idea! I will have to put that on my holiday to-do list as well!
