2. Wake up at four in the morning to sneak a peek at the Christmas tree
3. Shake a few gifts and guess what they are.
4. Leave cookies and milk out for Santa. For reals!
5. Wear a Santa hat.
6. Countdown to the big day with a CHOCOLATE advent calendar.
7. Forget about calories for just one day.
8. Wear your PJ's all day long.
9. Get out and actually PLAY in the snow!
10. Watch your favorite holiday movie - from a blanket fort in the living room and with plenty of hot chocolate!

  1. Gotta have the chocolate Advent calendars!! My kids started theirs today. :-D

  2. Hehe cute! I totally was/am a person who gets up early on Christmas. I was always up at 5:30 ish. I've since started getting up at about 7, this year may be different though. Pregnancy makes me pretty tired. We'll see!

  4. Haha, love this list! Christmas has always been my favorite holiday, so it's not hard for me to be excited about it!

  5. haha so cute. yes having kids will certainly do it!!!

  6. I could add a few...

    -Start in October asking several times a day "How many more days until Christmas?"

    -Tell everyone you know, "If you don't listen I'm telling Santa!!!"

    -Make numerous endless list of the $4,000.00 worth of toys you's like.

    -Frown with disgust when told your not getting $4,000 worth of toys.

    -Make baby Jesus out of Legos.....
