Winter Bucket List, really just should be things I want to get done before the end of the year! As December rolls in, and there are only 3 weeks left till Christmas, I find the holiday cheer, and giddiness set in. Maybe mine is because in 3 weeks I will be settled in at my parents house with hubby, 2 dogs, mom, dad, sister, her boyfriend, and grandma ready to celebrate the holidays! I will get to see all my cousins, aunts, uncles, great aunt, many little cousins, and friends all in one place (most of whom I haven’t seen since my wedding) on Christmas eve. We will get to take that obligatory photo (that happens only every 2 years) of each generation adding one more person to my generation (Dan), and laughing while piling the little ones on the couch hoping we can grab the fastest photo in the history of the land while they squirm about for 2 seconds! Can you tell I am a little excited. We will spend Christmas in our pjs hoping for snow to fall, opening presents, stockings, and smelling the monkey bread and dinner cook all day. In the end we will spend our day chasing “A Christmas Story” watching it out of order hoping to eventually catch the whole movie (isn’t that what everyone does)!
Now onto my Winter Bucket List!
