Need a little help getting into a festive mood? Here's 12 things to do before Christmas!
Send out your naughty or nice Santa video or personalized phone call from Santa himself. My little people got a kick out of it, even your bigger kids will wonder how Santa figured out a few things! It's a great find! Check it out here! www.portablenorthpole.com
Send out Christmas cards!
See a Christmas Play or attend a carol concert. Check out the Fireside Theatre. The Fireside Christmas is running now until 12/21/14 www.firesidetheatre.com
Great time to purchase extra batteries for all your new games and don’t forget to check to be sure you have plenty of room on that SD card for all those photo memories you will want to take.
Watch Christmas Movies like It’s a Wonderful Life, The Muppet Christmas carol, Elf, Christmas with the Kranks, A Christmas Story, or Miracle on 34th Street just to name a few.
Go ice skating or have a snow ball fight.
Make a playlist of your favorite Christmas Tunes on your MP3 or Ipod to keep the festive mood going all day. Or if you're like me, you can purchase a classic Christmas CD at your local big box store.
Dust off all your old board games so they're ready for Christmas Day. Checkers anyone?
Get in touch with your creative side by making Christmas cards or presents. See my pinterest board for some ideas www.pinterest.com/msoter/creative-gifts
Take a sleigh ride! Lots of places in Wisconsin to do that. Here's our sleigh ride from a year ago at Rocking L Acres. http://rockinglacres.com
Create your own great memory book of pictures or videos at www.shutterfly.com
As the year comes to a close, remember to appreciate the things you have, smile, laugh, be thankful, be helpful, always be nice and give to those who could use a little help.
