Countdown to Christmas: 11/25/2016

We're officially at the 'one month til Christmas' point! Many are or have been out Black Friday shopping today, this year however, we chose to sit this one out other than a quick trip into town for a needed item.

Here's what I enjoyed today in our countdown to Christmas journey ...

I've seen this idea on Pinterest in several places and after looking at the items needed to make them I got to work ... I had everything on hand needed:

canning jars
red and white yarn
candles (I purchased on clearance during last year's after Christmas clearance sales)

What do you thing?



Something I enjoyed doing!

One more thing, that quick trip into town I mentioned earlier ... well ... we listened to Christmas music going and coming and even did some singing along!  Another small and simple thing that makes the holiday season special!

Okay ... one more, one more thing ... we watched Frosty the Snowman on TV tonight and of course we had to sing along with the songs and help the characters say their parts (Yes, we've seen this show so many times we know all the lines ourselves!).  Can we just say that the Christmas spirit is alive and well at our house!!!!

What did you do today on your journey toward Christmas?
