I look forward to going to the tree farm to cut down our tree!

I look forward to baking cookies, and trying to decorate some before my boys eat them all!

I look forward to sitting on Christmas Eve, after the boys are put to bed, and snuggle with my husband as we watch A Christmas Carol.

I look forward to seeing their faces, full of excitement, running down the stairs on Christmas morning.

This is such a nice topic! I love looking at outside Christmas lights -- watching as more and more appear over the weeks. I love watching Christmas movies -- and listening to Christmas music. I love anything involving Christmas activities with children and grandchildren. And -- yes -- lets hear it for eating! Delicious food is wonderful!

bell December Activities

One of my favorite things in the world to do is to hit the "Day after Thanksgiving" sales with my sister! We shop till we drop...or we're broke!!

I love making Christmas cut out cookies with my kids.

Listening to Christmas music day and night.

Parties.

Christmas goodies.

My tree goes up on Thanksgiving!

Christmas shows on tv with the family and lots of popcorn and treats!

I love to wrap Christmas presents!

Just whatever we can find Christmassy to do!
We also love to drive around and look at Christmas lights with a treat in hand from Sonic!

This is really getting me into the Christmas mood!

I love turning on the radio and having the 1 Baltimore and 1 Washington DC station play nothing BUT Christmas music! Also seeing all the houses with Christmas decorations. Watching the Christmas shows/specials that are on TV almost every day! The month of December puts me in such a good state of mind!

Ummmmm... I like threads like this...Makes me happy to read all the things I love, so many others do,too!

My Favs:

Cutting our tree down
Putting up my North Pole Village
Bake day with my SIL
Shopping!
Listening to Christmas music 24/7
Watching holiday movies with my family
Holiday lights around town
Christmas parties
Christmas candelight service
But my very favorite - tiptoeing into the living room on Christmas morning, turning on the tree, lighting the fireplace, turning on Christmas music, starting a pot of coffee, setting breakfast treats on the table - then sitting in this quiet beauty to wait for my family and start the best day of the year.
