Happy December! I absolutely love this time of year, even if it is getting colder outside. From Thanksgiving to New Years Day, I always feel like a kid again and love the ‘magic’ of the holiday season. Growing up Christmas was a big deal in my house and I want to continue to make it a big deal for Ryan, Phoebe and me…and then in the future when we decide to have kids. Thankfully, Ryan knows how much I love the holidays so he puts up with me and joins in on the fun.
I came across this idea of an advent calendar by Jordan Ferney on Oh Happy Day and while I don’t own an advent calendar, I thought I’d create my own list of activities for Ryan and me to do this month. When I showed him this list Ryan sighed and said, “Kristin, you’re….special.” I took that as a compliment and moved on!
I read Jordan’s list and thought it was so adorable – so I pretty much picked out her favorites and then threw a few of my own in there. Here’s my list…I’m excited to really get into the spirit of Christmas this year!
