thinking december.

i spent 7 straight hours on campus today. and i forgot to eat breakfast, so i definitely didn't eat anything until i got home 30 minutes ago. no bueno.

after a quesadilla and a couple deep breaths, i realized that december starts tomorrow. the other night, my roommate and i decided that we want to do something festive every day of december, leading up to christmas. so we started making a list. [i love lists]. here's what we have so far:

see the lights at temple square
make and hang-up christmas stockings
drink hot chocolate with homemade marshmellows
decorate a christmas tree
wrap our gifts for a little girl in need
watch 'a muppet christmas carol'
make apartment christmas cards
build gingerbread houses
take a drive to check out the neighborhood lights
have a roommate 'christmas' dinner
write goals for 2010
make christmas sugar cookies
go to a christmas concert
make a wreath for the door
take 'family' pictures [our apartment family]
hang mistletoe
christmas caroling
serve food at the homeless shelter

so what am i missing?

what are your favorite traditions for the month of december?

suggestions are welcome :)


xoxo.

I LOVE the Muppets Christmas Carol! That is a very good Christmas activity.

We're doing that too! Our list is a bit different because kids are involved. Like we'll be doing some silly crafty stuff like making a Christmas ornament (I want them to have a homemade Christmas ornament each year and somehow help with making them and have it NOT be a complete piece of junk....last year was handprints, this year, silhouettes).
Go see a Christmas concert...is that on your list already?
P.S. Did you send our CD...I am so stinkin anxious
