Ideas/Tips/Good Things

This is the best smell ever for your house.

I have a Christmas ring tone...Santa Baby....
To get into the spirit of the holidays go ahead and download a Christmas song as your ring tone.

Several I've heard...

Jingle Bells
All I want for Christmas is you
Have yourself a Merry little Christmas
Baby its cold outside
Let it Snow

Also...break out the Christmas movies too.
We own Elf, Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, The Polar Express, The Holiday....I love them all! Some other family movies to watch this holiday season are The Blindside, Steel Magnolias, The Help, The Notebook, Forest Gump, Marely and Me, Planes, Trains and Automobiles....just a few to name.

Some Bucket list things to do....remember to not over book. When the kids get out on "break" remember it is just a "break"

1. Take homemade cookies to your local firemen or police officers.
2. Start a New years Bucket  list...things you want to do in 2016
3. Make candy for neighbors, the trash men, your UPS driver, the post man and your At&t guy (hint hint). These workers are out in the cold..and Baby its cold outside!!!
4. Patties is so pretty this time of year...if you can go take a ton of pictures there. The beauty of the lights. We are celebrating Scott's parents 50 year anniversary there this December! 
5. Donate old toys to shelters or church nurseries.
6. Make Bird feeders for the birds. We do this with Miller.
8. Bundle up and walk your neighborhood with hot cocoa and look at Christmas Lights.
10. Christmas Trivia for those long car rides
12. This site will give you tons of ideas for Christmas parties and games...(Homeroom mommas)

7 words to think about..
It is in giving that you receive.

Netflix has a ton of Christmas is the link.

I saw this idea last year....and LOVED it. My family is doing it this year. It doesn't have to be fancy.

I'm on track so far. My halls are decked. The Christmas Cards have been ordered. Shopping is almost done. Hoping to wrap everything next week.
Parties are penciled in. Christmas Movies are being played everyday here.
And a Partridge in a Pear Tree....

Enjoy the days!!
