Christmas Bucket List


Everyone is going to have their own family traditions for each holiday. That is a huge part of what makes holidays a lot of fun.  Include all of your family traditions and maybe start a few more with a bucket list. I don’t put a huge amount of pressure on myself. I try to pick things that I know we can do and lots of things that I know we have the supplies on hand to accomplish. If I am looking at our Christmas Bucket List in September, I am more likely to have all the supplies I need on hand to tackle this list in December.

Below is our bucket list and here is a link to my Christmas Pinterest Board.
