Christmas Checklist

Hello, hello! 
I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas! This was my first time in a few years to actually be at home with my family in Michigan on Dec. 25th and we had a really great day. I’ll be sharing more next week, but for now I want to enjoy all the time in Michigan I have left before we leave tomorrow. 
It’s kind of sad because it seems like the holiday season goes by more quickly each year and it’s hard to believe Christmas is already over! Well, it’s not technically over for us yet as we still have Christmas, Part 2 with Cam’s family this weekend out in Oregon, plus I think that the holidays aren’t really over until after New Year’s Day. So while there are still a few days left, I figured I’d go ahead and share how we did on our Christmas To-Do list! We were actually able to get most of the items completed…while some will have to wait for next year!

Decorate our house/tree
 
Mail Christmas Cards {Our card for this year}

Do some sort of Christmas craft (I didn’t have time this year, but I did make these from a Pinterest recipe I found and they came out great!)
Bake at least 5 kinds of cookies (New favorites for this year: These and these)
Workout at least 4 times a week (We did for the two weeks that we were actually home in Tahoe this month…ha!)
Go to see the Nutcracker Ballet (Next year we are definitely doing this!)

Make a really good batch of hot cocoa to enjoy on a snowy night

Get our Christmas shopping done ASAP (This kind of dragged out…but it’s done now!)

Go to candlelight Christmas Eve service

Keep the house clean during the month of December (Eh, we did alright…)

How about you? Did you do anything fun this holiday season?
