Things to do with your family over the holidays that don’t cost a fortune and will leave an imprint on your hearts forever:
🎁 Decorate the house in your pajamas, blaring Christmas music!
🎁 Create and send cards to our military overseas.
🎁 Create and deliver cards and homemade cookies to local fire and police stations.
🎁 Serve as a family at the local soup kitchen.
🎁 Make homemade ornaments for the Christmas tree.
🎁 Have a Little Debbie Christmas Tree hide and seek game — hide the trees and then find/eat them. Because I just want an excuse to eat that magical goodness.
🎁 Take awkward family photos with Santa. Laugh a lot!
🎁 Drive around and look at Christmas lights. Don't forget to bring the cocoa and peppermint coffee for the drive!
🎁 Have a family Christmas movie marathon - don't forget the popcorn!
🎁 Go ice skating as a family.
🎁 Shop for/pack a gift box for Operation Christmas Child and talk to your children about how fortunate we are.
🎁 Go to a live nativity as a family.
🎁 Bake homemade cookies with the kids! Don't forget all the fun edible decorations and let them lick the icing off the spoon.
🎁 Go to the local holiday parade. Wear your ugly Christmas sweaters for funsies.
🎁 Sit around the fire, roast marshmallows and read the Christmas story.
🎁 Leave milk and cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve.
🎁 Make a "Happy Birthday Jesus" cake and sing on Christmas day! ‘Tis the season and He’s the reason!
PS: this was me and my girl watching a Christmas movie — she just couldn’t hang. But it’s now one of my favorite memories and a gift I will treasure forever.🎄
These are the gifts that we need during the hustle and bustle of the season.
