Countdown to Christmas Recap

Can you believe Christmas is over?  I hope everyone had a great day with their loved ones!  While our plans ended up changing a little, I think Noah had a fantastic Christmas this year.  We got to see both families and Noah got to play with his cousins!  I will be back on Monday sharing a full recap of our Christmas this year.  In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to recap how we spent the Christmas season.  In case you missed it, at the beginning of the month, I shared our December Bucket List.  Here's how we did (in pictures)...

"decorate the tree" | "hang stockings on the mantel" | "put lights up outside"
"send Christmas cards and display the ones we receive"

"read a new Christmas book for our 25 Days of Books" | "wear new Christmas pajamas!"


"visit Rockefeller tree" | "drive around looking at Christmas lights"

"Christmas wreath craft" | "Christmas tree craft" | "gingerbread craft" | "color a Christmas picture"

"host Christmas breakfast with friends"

"do a Christmas themed photo shoot" | "buy gifts for kids in need"


"bake and decorate cookies" | "enjoy hot chocolate/chocolate milk and donuts"


"watch Elmo's Christmas Countdown" | "sing songs and act out nativity" |
"make Christmas music playlist and sing along"

"set a festive table" | "host Christmas dinner"

The only things we didn't end up doing was "go to church music program" and the "act out the nativity" part.  Honestly, I'm impressed we were able to do so many of the things on the list... it made for a super fun December!
