On the first day of December, I made a list of ten things that I wanted to do before Christmas Day. Here’s how I did:
Ten Things I Plan To Do Before Christmas Day
1. Read Luke 2. – DONE
Re-reading Luke 2 inspired a Top Ten Tuesday post.
2. Wrap presents. – DONE
3. Make Christmas cookies. – DONE
Check out these yummy gingerbread
men trees I made!
4. Watch a Charlie Brown Christmas. – DONE
So… it is virtually impossible to find a full-length version of a Charlie Brown Christmas online. Thankfully, ABC had it available in their app. I downloaded the app, watched the movie, and deleted the app.
5. Cut snowflakes. – DONE
I snipped these lovely flakes while watching a Charlie Brown Christmas.
6. Attend a Christmas concert or play. – DONE
I attended my school’s annual concert known as Candlelight Carols. I have been 4-5 times now, and I think this year was the best yet.
7. Eat something gingerbread-flavored. – DONE
Here are the tasty gingerbread
men ducks that I made.
8. Give (or at least prepare to give) a homemade present. – DONE
My brother is receiving a handmade gift from me this year, but since he hasn’t opened it yet, I can’t tell you anything about it 🙂
I also gave gingerbread
men trees, angels, and stars to my bosses at work.
(I really need to buy a gingerbread man cookie cutter. This is the closest thing we have.)
9. Decorate the Christmas tree. – DONE
10. Listen to all of my favorite Christmas CDs. – DONE
As promised, I started with Let it Snow Baby, Let it Reindeer. From there, I listened to Christmas CDs by Matthew West, Point of Grace, Steven Curtis Chapman, and many others!
Did you finish everything that you set out to do before Christmas?
