12 days of christmas giving

so! to make this holiday extra special, i decided to try out a little thing called “12 days of christmas loving.”  the idea is that jon gets 12 gifts for christmas, but in a patterned way: on december 12th (the first day) he gets 1 gift, on december 13th (the second day) he gets 2 gifts, and so forth, until the final and twelfth day, december 25th, when he gets 12 gifts.  how fun does this sound?

i also made my sweetheart commit to building a gingerbread house:

a winter photo shoot:

And a couple other things that I consider my favorite holiday activities:

 

  • Ice skating
  • Chop a Christmas tree
  • Sledding
  • Dog sledding
  • Cross country skiing
  • Snow mobilig
  • Ice fishing
  • Snow shoeing
  • Build a snowman
  • Go mistletoe picking
  • Make ornament from tree trunk
  • Build a snow fort
  • Winter picnic with little candles
  • Zoo lights
  • Day after thanksgiving shopping
  • Write Christmas cards
  • Adopt a family

Needless to say, we’ve been busy…

Happy holidays!!
