With a huge thanks to Pastor David Troutman of Northglenn Christian Church, I pass you a “to do” list for this Christmas season:
FINGER FOOD DINNER:
Pick a night this week. Go to the grocery store and have everyone pick out a finger food to share. Head home prepare your dishes and enjoy each others company!
CHRISTMAS MOVIE NIGHT:
Everyone put on your favorite PJ’s and slippers, make some hot cocoa or chai, pop some popcorn and watch a Christmas movie together.
DOLLAR TREE GIVING SPREE:
Head to the nearest dollar store and give everyone $1 for each family member (plus tax). You have ten minutes to find the perfect gift for each member. Go home and wrap the gifts for Christmas Eve or Christmas morning.
This one is simple… either look up a recipe or buy a kit. Spend the evening together decorating your edible house.
FAMILY GAME NIGHT:
Pull out some board games, a deck of cards or a puzzle.
CHRISTMAS CAMP OUT:
Combine any of the previously mentioned events with a living room camp out! Get out some blankets, make some forts and sleep on the floor.
The objective is to create memories. When we look back at the time we spend with our family we will rarely remember something someone gave us… what we remember is the time we spend with one another. GET CREATIVE and CREATE A LIFELONG MEMORY of CHRISTMAS 2016!
Amen, Pastor David. Merry Christmas, everyone!
