Twelve Dates of Christmas

This is Kevin and mine's second Christmas together. But this is really the first that we are celebrating.
 {Here} is what we spent last Christmas doing...



Christmas is such a fun, romantic time with so many things to do, and it's important to make time for each other amidst the holiday craziness! So each December we will plan 12 special dates to do together. This year we've already done most of ours, and still have some left! I'm posting this now, because there are officially 12 days and then Christmas starting TODAY...so you can still fit this in! I love this tradition and hope you will join in! Here are the 12 dates we chose this year......

On the first date of Christmas... 
We went on a shopping trip to pick out our very first ornament together.

On the second date of Christmas... 
We put tons of lights on our house! Kids in the neighborhood love it!

On the third date of Christmas...
We decorated our home while listening to Christmas music. 

On the fourth date of Christmas... 
We stuffed, signed and stamped all of our Christmas cards to send out! 

On the fifth date of Christmas... 
We went to dinner and a movie.

On the sixth date of Christmas...
We finished paining our dresser together.

On the seventh date of Christmas... 
Tonight is my company Christmas party!

On the eighth date of Christmas... 
We I will be making cookies for the neighbors

On the ninth date of Christmas... 
We are going to Winterhaven!

On the tenth date of Christmas... 
We Kevin wraps gifts. Which is good because he is a better wrapper than me.
But I do all the rapping...
punny.

On the eleventh date of Christmas... 
We watched Christmas Vacation!
One of my favorite holiday movies. Also on the list...Christmas with the Cranks, Home Alone 1 and 2.

And on the twelfth date of Christmas... 
Our home will be decorated and we will celebrate Christmas together going to church, opening presents, and spending time with family that we love.

  1. I love this idea! My fiancé and I will have to start doing this as soon as we spend Christmas time together! I really like the idea of picking out an ornament together! I can't wait to do this as soon as we get married! Now for your 9th date, you're going to Winterhaven. I grew up near a Winterhaven and I'm wondering if it's the same one. Is it the one right on the California/Arizona border by chance??

  4. Aww! That really sounds like fun! In previous years, I've made some sort of countdown that involves us doing Christmas activities together, but this year was so crazy with traveling and family stuff that I decided to skip it. Hopefully we'll have it again next year!
