Mini Christmas Activities

Every year when my daughter was younger, I tried to do a Christmas themed activity each day. Something small. Manageable. Fun.

Then she started high school and we had a run of later finishes in December. Trying to balance exams and assessments with mums crazy little Christmas Shenanigans was harder with each passing year and then the last two my wheels fell off completely and we limped to the finishing line with a Bah humbug kind of cheer.

This year she asked if we could really make the most of the Christmas cheer since she is getting older and the magic is getting harder to capture. And so with a late November finish we jumped into the activities with great enthusiasm!

Worth the pre-coffee drive!

Earlier this week we drove up to our local Starbucks and grabbed a Christmassy breakfast! Cinnamon scroll for mumma and some red velvet concoction for the teen!

Which to choose?

Yesterday was the release day of Krispy Kreme’s Christmas donuts! I’m unsure if living so close to a 7/11 who stock the Krispy Kreme donuts is a blessing or curse!

This morning was up early to be at the shops before the rush and crossing off a few errands. We both came home with a new book or two each, so we are curled up in the air con reading for the afternoon!
