THINGS TO DO! Week of December 18 to December 24

Who else is not ready for Christmas! 

I mean, I’m excited for it… but I am so not ready. I have not wrapped a single present or baked anything, and I’m still finishing up last minute gifts! Every year I say, I’ll start earlier! And then life happens! 

If you’re like me, you’ll probably be racing around getting everything done with little time for fun activities. But let’s all try to make sure we take some time to enjoy the holiday season around us! Even if it’s for a half hour story time with Santa or an evening trolley ride to see the lights.  

I’ve put together a full week of activities, that will bring us to Christmas Eve. Of course, I left that day blank because I hope that you will all be able to enjoy family and friends and all the festivities! 

In lieu of a calendar of events next week, I’ll be posting a Guide to Surviving Winter Break later on this week.  And then I’ll be taking a small break from posting until the weekend before New Years! 

Enjoy the last week before the holidays everyone!
