This year’s 24 Days of Togetherness is off to a great start – we’ve already had a ton of fun and we’re only 5 days in. I’m excited to see what the rest of the holiday season holds for us. Here’s a little recap of Days 1 through 5 so far!
Day 1: Get a Christmas tree and decorate it.
Day 2: Do an anonymous good deed. We visited some friends and hid Starbucks gift cards in their house for them to find! 🙂
Day 3: Make a gingerbread house. We picked up a great gingerbread house kit from Trader Joe’s – super easy and fun!
Day 4: Listen to The Muppets Christmas. <— Mal has been doing this since he was a kid!
Day 5: Make Christmas cookies. These cookies were EPIC. Mal recently bought some chocolate chip cookie dough from a school fundraiser, so we used that to make the cookies. Then, Quinn and I made homemade frosting using powdered sugar, which made a huge mess of the kitchen. It was actually pretty hilarious because Quinn and I were both covered in powdered sugar by the end – but the frosting turned out great! Haha! We finished off the cookies with some holiday sprinkles and then they were done! OMGSOGOOD!
Question of the Day
Are you participating in 24 Days of Togetherness this year? If so, what have you done so far?
With all of our weird schedules we are glad to get in 2-4 days of togetherness….but, this Saturday we have planned to go to a local church and take in their Christmas Program together ~ even planning a little supper out before hand! woohoo!
Yes! It has been a bit more challenging this year but we are making it work. So far we have reached out to a friend we haven’t talked to in a while, wrote down the top 10 things we love about our relationship and had eggnog by the fire. We also went on an impromptu adventure into the mountains to cut down a Christmas tree , not a written bucket list activity this year but I’m counting it.
That hiding the gift idea is so good!
My husband and I aren’t doing a formal 24 days, but we’ve Christmas’ed quite a bit so far! Last Saturday we bought a tree, my husband decorated the outside of the house, I decorated the mantel, and we made sugar cookies on Sunday!
I can’t wait to have a little family of my own so I can do this! Christmastime is just so much fun. My boyfriend and I have a huge holiday to-do list, and so far we’ve checked off quite a few fun things like running a holiday race, decorating our Christmas tree and baking and decorating cookies! We have holiday parties to attend this weekend and a date night scheduled to check out holiday lights in Georgetown. There’s so much happening in DC this time of year!
