Deck The Halls

Wow I can't believe Christmas is just a few days away. Scott asked me if I was getting excited and I told him yes but also sad because I don't want it to be over!! I can't believe another year has come and gone. Something about another year passing by in a flash always makes me sad. Anyone else feel this way?
I am getting so, so excited about our fun Christmas festivities though. Things seem to really start kicking off for us on December 23 and we go full speed for a few days. I booked our train tickets for this coming Saturday. We ride a Christmas train every December 23 and I think I got the last set of tickets so I'm glad I checked a few days ago and purchased them!! The boys absolutely love this Christmas train ride and it makes Scott and I happy to watch them. Our tradition of doing it so close to Christmas is fun because it feels like it kicks off the Christmas festivities in a really fun way.
I finished all of my Christmas shopping last week so no more frantic holiday shopping for me! I do have some food prep to do but it won't be stressful. I did my best to get everything done as early as possible so I could just enjoy the week of Christmas, stress free. I've not had any work to do in the evenings and every night this week I've gotten in bed early to watch a Christmas movie. It's been pure bliss. If only it were snowing outside and then it would be perfect.
This year will be different for us because we're waking up at our house on Christmas. I have some fun stuff planned that I want to become new traditions for us. I'm planning on having the boys make Christmas cookies for Santa over the weekend. We'll read T'was The Night Before Christmas on Christmas Eve. Maybe we'll go look at some Christmas lights over the weekend as well. Does anyone have any fun family traditions you do every Christmas? I would love for you to share them! Traditions are what make Christmas so fun so the more traditions we can come up with, the better!!
Leave me some ideas in the comments!!
