Since this is the First of December I decided to write my bucket list of fun things to do this Christmas season with my family. Some of these things we do every year and a few are things we have yet to do.
1. Bethlehem Revisited
One of the things we do every year is visit the Bethlehem Revisited in Waxahachie, TX. Its a free event that walks you through the recreation of the Three Wise Men's journey to visit baby Jesus. The whole area is set up to look like what Bethlehem would have. It is such an amazing experience for all ages, but I think it really teaches the kids the real reason for the Christmas Holiday.
2. Holiday in the Park
We do this every year as well. Six Flags puts on a wonderful magical Christmas event through January before closing for three months. This is where the kids will more than likely visit with Santa.
3. Learn how to make homemade egg nog without the alcohol.
4. Christmas crafts with the kids, maybe like these.
5. Elf on a shelf.
This will be our first visit from Figgy the Elf, I heard he's quite mischievous so I hope he doesn't get into too much mischief. :)
It's not much, but I really wanted to keep it simple this year. Sometimes its fun to just hang out, watch Christmas movies with the family while sipping on hot chocolate and eating popcorn.
Yea, I think we'll be doing a lot of that too. :)
So what are some of your family's Christmas traditions??? Any favorite Christmas movies?? We love to watch the Christmas Story and Charlie Brown's Christmas.
