Winter is my absolute favorite season of the year! I love the cold weather, the festivities, the presents, the holiday movies, everything! I LOVE WINTER! So here is my bucket list for winter of all the activities I wish to do with my family this year.
If you're looking for ideas, you're sure to find some in this post! :)
Elf On The Shelf comes for the holidays! Elf On The Shelf Ideas
Christmas In The Park or other public Christmas display/gathering
Pictures with Santa Claus
Snow Day-For those of us in California it can take a little bit of a drive to find snow. But that makes it extra special for our family.
Gingerbread cookies and other holiday baking
Make "family gifts"- With the help of my kids, we put together gifts for each family in our circle. Each house gets a special homemade craft or box of treats or jar of something pickled/canned/etc.
This year, we will be making fudge and mini hand warmers to pass out to our families. Fudge for the adults and mini hand warmers for the kids!

Gather around the fireplace and tell family stories
Take a train ride on the Polar Express
