Carlson Countdown to Christmas 2018: Dec 1

Carlson Countdown to Christmas 2018: Dec 1

Our annual December tradition of 25 Days of Christmas Activities began today.

[We usually put up the tree and decorate on the first, but I worked in the morning and Brett will be working until midnight, so we did our decorating yesterday.]

To kick things off, the kids and I created a countdown to Christmas paper chain. It’s hanging on our chalkboard and currently reaches the floor. Each day we will take a link off the chain so the kids can get a visual of how many days left until Christmas.

[This is super handy because I have to convince them every morning that it’s not Christmas yet.]

We also made snowmen ornaments for the tree. [They were leftover crafts from last year.]

The kids watched A Charlie Brown Christmas and we brought out our collection of Christmas books and read a lot of beloved holiday stories that we haven’t seen in a year.

And now I’m addressing our Christmas cards.

I debated whether I should send Christmas cards this year, because of going “green” and all that, but it is a tradition that I love.

At least they aren’t printed on photo paper so they can be recycled… 🤷‍♀️

Happy December, ya’ll!!!
