Happy December! It is finally time for hot cocoa, Christmas lights and Hallmark movies!

I am 100% that person who starts watching Christmas movies in October and listening to Christmas music way too early! I drive poor Joey CRAZY! This time of the year is my favorite with our little family. There are so many things to do together and so many memories to make!

I love getting all the decorations out and making the house look festive! Although, I am a little particular where certain decorations go and I get stressed out when Olivia goes crazy putting things wherever. But… I digress. We went to a Christmas tree lighting in a small town where we live this past weekend and it was so much fun!

The mayor read a prayer, a chorus sang Christmas carols, the kids met Santa and they had a Gingerbread House contest! We are going to enter next year with our best friends and DOMINATE the competition, just saying. After we left there, we found the house in our town that has a beautiful light show that goes with music on the radio! The family brings candy canes to all of the cars and wishes everyone a Merry Christmas. It was the perfect thing to do with Olivia!

I thought it would be fun to make a December Bucket List and cross things off as we do it and I wanted to share it with you! I am so excited to check more Christmas activities off in the next few weeks! What is your favorite activity to do with your kids and loved ones in December?
