In addition to all the preparation that is involved in bringing a third child into the world, I have also been busy planning our family’s 25 Days of Christmas List! :)

If you are not  familiar with what it means, we as a family will be doing at least one special Christmas activity together from December 1st up until, and of course including Christmas day. With a focus on art, baking and DIY presents this year, the hubster and I have come up with the following list:

December 1: Our Elf (on the Shelf) makes his debut appearance with a special “Elf Breakfast” and introduces the boys’ Advent Calendars!


December 2: Build a snowman family together!

December 3: Watch “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” while eating stove-popped popcorn and drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows!

December 4: Set up our Nativity Scene together!
