Day 22: Read Christmas Stories
This year we decided to start a new tradition with our little family..."12 books of Christmas" - see post here. Miss B has really enjoyed reading these books to Master M and to me as well. I might check out the Boxing Day sales and get some more Christmas books ready for next year! Her favourite book to read has been "A Pukeko in a ponga tree" (a New Zealand classic).
Day 23: Visit the Christmas Lights
Every year our city has a Christmas Lights Trail - we go around looking at all the houses that are covered with Christmas decorations and lights! There were some amazing houses this year! (Master M as fast asleep at home with Daddy - maybe next year)

Day 24: Get milk & cookies ready for Santa
I had seen this idea on Pinterest and thought it would be a cool idea to do with Miss B. It's really easy...all you need is a white plate & some Sharpies. 1. Write your message around the edge of the plate, 2. Trace 2x circle shapes for Santa's milk and cookies & 3. Draw a carrot shape for Rudolph's carrot. Bake the plate for 30 minutes in the oven at 180 degrees (or the microwave for 30 seconds) so that the Sharpie doesn't smudge. Put out Santa's plate tonight before the kids go to bed!
Before I forget...We have completed our Day 6 & 7 (we had to reschedule - see it here) activities over the weekend.
Day 6: Leave a gift under the Wishing Tree
Day 7: Go and visit Santa
This is Master M's FIRST Christmas so I definitely had to get a photo of him (and Miss B) with Santa this year! Love these photos! Thanks Harvey Norman!
ONE FINAL NOTE:
Merry Christmas to YOU and your family!
It's time to sit back and relax with my family and friends! What a fabulous year it has been - Thank you so much for visiting Teacher by trade - Mother by nature and being a part of my blogging community!
See you soon!
