i got super ambitious this holiday season and decided to do a 25 days of christmas advent for our family. the first five days we stayed on target, but then matt went out of town for a week and i kept forgetting. we didn't quite get to every activity on our list, however we did do quite a bit of fun holiday activities.
in no particular order...
*walk around riverwoods to see the lights.
*decorate the family tree and a kids tree.
*decorate the felt tree over and over and over
*get a holiday treat
*family date to trolley square
*dinner at riverwoods
*decorate the windows with christmas clings
*25 days of christmas books. each night before bed, brooks would open one book to read. he LOVED this new tradition that we started. i had several christmas books from teaching preschool but i also checked a few out from the library in order to have 25 different books.
