Fly on by Friday Linky – Christmas Count Down

Posted on the 24 October 2013 by Meltingmoments

Okay, so it’s not even November yet but I just love Christmas time. I have so many happy family memories of Christmas day and the holidays. I get excited about it way too early!

This year Dora will be old enough to get more involved in the excitement of it all.

Things I love doing to get into the Christmas spirit:

  • Visit the retail stores to see their Christmas displays. We buy one special decoration to put on our tree each year.
  • Look up and pin the Christmas recipes I’d like to try out this year as well as finding my old favourites.
  • Buy some pretty Christmas cards and think about writing them out – hehe. I don’t always get to them but I love the idea.
  • Take a Christmassy photo of Dora to send to family.
  • Set up our online family Christmas wishlist to get ideas about what they are needing/wanting. This saves so much time when shopping (as I am terrible with making decisions about gifts) and ensures their gift will be well received.
  • Sample mum’s sensational Christmas cakes and puddings.
  • Start buying presents both online and in stores.
  • Get the Christmas carols out.
  • Pull out our box of Christmas decorations and put the tree up.
  • Visit the streets that go all out with their Christmas lights.
  • Have Santa photos taken.
  • Have Santa send Dora a message via the ‘Portable North Pole’ – she will understand it this year :)
  • Wrap gifts.

Then it’s all about waiting for the man in the big red suit to arrive!
