Happy Christmas Eve!

We are so blessed this year! We get to spend Christmas Eve with our families and children, eating good food and enjoying great company.

Tonight we will pack a care package for our little Elf on the Shelf, Elsa, and send her back to Santa.  Our kids will open their special Christmas Eve gift which is always new pj’s, popcorn, hot coco, ice-cream treat and a new Christmas themed movie.

Our little family will snuggle in and watch the movie before bed. After we will place a key for Santa on the door.

We will get out our special cookie plate and cup and set out fresh made cookies and a tall glass of ice-cold milk for Santa and some carrots for his reindeers. Then it is off to bed to dream of sleigh-bells and magic, I ❤ this time of year!

RACK- Random Acts of Christmas Kindness

I saw this and thought what an amazing idea, it’s a advent calendar for counting down to Christmas through random acts of kindness. Brilliant!

There was also a downloadable calendar with great ideas! Even though Christmas is almost here I plan to make the most of the days left and follow the calendar for the days that are left.

What a Wonderful Idea!

I think I will try to do this for friends and family this year! I unfortunately won’t be doing this for the littles since I have already purchased most of their gifts but will definitely keep it in mind for next year. Look out Etsy, here I come! Along with Etsy Nicole’s Fine Pastry is definitely on my short list for gift ideas as well as K & Krafts and Just Grains for those with dietary restrictions on my list. 🙂

What about you?

If you have any great ideas for handmade/homemade/local gifts we would love to hear from you, leave us a comment.
