25 Days of Christmas

I made a little calendar of events, activities, crafts, and recipes I want to do this month. It’s been fun to celebrate the Christmas season everyday. I made sure to put some religious things in the mix too to make sure we don’t get carried away by all the glam of the season. I love this time of year, though, especially now that we have Eva to share it all with. She’s finally to the age where she knows what’s going on and can get excited!

Here are a couple instagrams from the first couple days! We watched Christmas movies, went to the Newport JC Christmas Tree lighting, saw the window displays on fifth ave, visited the tree at Rockefeller Center, made sugar cookies and Christmas tree pizzas, crafted a paper chain, attended our church Christmas party, acted out the nativity as a family, read the Christmas story from Luke 2, and wrote a card to Santa and delivered it at Macy’s!
