Our December Bucket List for This Year

One of the most requested podcast episodes has been for us to talk about our Christmas traditions, what Christmas looks like for our family, and how we do gifts for our immediate and extended family.

In this episode, we sat down with Kathrynne, Kaitlynn, and Silas and had a discussion on our favorite Christmas memories, why we make a December Bucket List, what we chose for our bucket list this year, some things we’re doing differently for Christmas this year, how we do gifts, and what Christmas Eve and Christmas Day look like for our family.

One of our biggest goals for each December is to keep things simple, not over-commit, and focus on memory-making and shared experiences. We sit down at the end of November and talk about what we want to prioritize for the Christmas season and then we make a list and block out days and times on the calendar to make these priorities happen.

We’re excited about some new things we’re trying this year and we’re looking forward to another special December season of celebrating the true meaning of Christmas and spending lots of time together as a family!

[01:58] We kick off the show by each sharing one of our favorite Christmas memories.

    Thank you for sharing your Christmas traditions. I really enjoyed listening to everyone participate. I am going to pray about how we can start some very simple and non-stressful activities. I really like the bucket list idea & then putting it on the calendar. Thanks again. May your family be blessed by the memories you create this year. 🎄✝️🌺
