24 Days of Togetherness [Days 5 – 9]

Good morning, friends!

I can’t believe it’s already December 10th. Holy cow, this month is flying by. But, of course, that’s why we love 24 Days of Togetherness so much.

The holiday season always whizzes by, and I’d hate to feel like we missed out some of our favorite traditions. Having a bucket list of sorts is such a great way to enjoy time together while also “checking off” our favorite activities. With that, here’s a recap of days 5 -9! 🙂

DAY 5: Make a gingerbread house.

Quinn actually had the opportunity to make TWO gingerbread houses. One was a kit from Trader Joe’s.

And the other was a part of a special “Saturday Science” class at the Hingham Library all about architecture. Didn’t he do a great job? I’m so impressed with our little architect!

DAY 6: Bake holiday cookies.

This year’s cookies might have been the tastiest yet! 🙂 We used pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough and then decorated the cookies with red and green frosting and all sorts of sprinkles.

DAY 7: Go to see holiday lights.

We saw the lightshow on Lilah Lane once again this year. If you’re local, it’s a MUST SEE!

Then, we came home and ate cereal together. 🙂

DAY 8: Donate a gift to a local toy drive.

Our local Orangetheory hosted a gift drive to support the Massachusetts Department of Children and Family, so we participated and selected a 10 year old boy.

DAY 9: Watch a holiday movie

This year, we snuggled on the couch in our holiday pajamas and watched The Nightmare Before Christmas, which was Quinn’s pick! 🙂

  1. I have had endless discussions about The Nightmare Before Christmas and whether or not it’s a Christmas movie. I think it’s a Christmas movie for three reasons: Christmas is in the title, it has Santa Clause in it, and it puts me in the Christmas mood. I feel like those are good criteria to make a decision about it. The kicker? The director says it’s a Halloween movie! I say hogwash, it’s whatever it makes you feel.

    I’m excited to see how the rest of your month shakes out.
