Each day the boys and I have a small activity, project, or service planned through Christmas. Nothing spectacular or expensive. Lots of sugar involved and hopefully fun-filled time. Just moments of small things like “Cut Out Paper Snowflakes” and “Go to Barnes and Noble for a new Christmas book.” We’ve “Painted ornaments” and made “Special Holiday Chex Mix.”
String a Paper Garland.
I can’t reveal all of the day’s activities because some of them are service projects and surprises for loved ones. But we are going to do the “Drive-thru Difference” and pay for someone else’s coffee one morning, if all works out “Deliver Sweets of Gratitude to the Fire Station,” and “Leave a treat for the Lawn Guys.”
Bits of time.
Lots of love.
(If you want the whole list I’ll email it to you.)
