Countdown to Christmas-Weekly Recap

I love Christmas. Really.  It’s my favorite time of year.  I love nothing more than Christmas.   Well, besides Big Daddy and the Girls.  ;o)  Christmas is a big deal to me and I work super hard to make sure that I walk the line between making sure I relax and enjoy my holiday and having all the little loose ends accounted for so things are perfect.

This week, I spent some time making lists

Most importantly, I wrote out and updated a Calendar that counts me down to the holiday season (you can view it at Google Docs too).

People always ask why people like me start so early?  It’s not even December.  Don’t I know it, but making our holiday the best it can be takes time and effort.

This year, we’re trying something new as well.  Each Friday, we watch a movie and have pizza.  Thanks to an awesome idea I discovered in the blog-o-sphere, I’ve started making a themed treat to match the movie we’re watching. Starting the Friday after Thanksgiving, we’re having a Holiday Film Festival complete with treats.  Here’s what it looks like

Friday November 27th

White Christmas and snowmen on a stick and rice krispie treat snowmen

Friday, December 4th

Christmas Vacation egg nog and gingerbread snots (or dogs.  Like, you know, the one with the Mississippi leg hound in him?  This is only funny if you know the movie.)

Friday, December 11th

Fred Claus and Claus Cupcakes

Friday, December 18th

The Santa Clause (we might even do a marathon and watch one and two) and Bakerella’s Reindeer Cake Pops
