Merry Christmas to you! What a weird year (an understatement)…but here are our ideas for holiday fun while trying to stay safe. I hope you enjoy them.
1. Plan Menus ~ Since We Can’t Eat Out
This year, our son Thomas (who is becoming quite the chef like his dad) drew up a menu for us to get excited about…and pitch in and shop (I just put it on pretty paper).
I’m definitely getting back on a weight loss program in January!
2. Take A Walk With Music
One year, Tommy brought a small Beats Pill with us on our family hike…it really put a pep in our step! Great portable sound. Not the best photo…but you can see we are happy!
3. Text Happy Holiday Photos To Family Not With You
Send smiling shots to the folks that can’t be with you and tell them you love them.
4. Play Cards and Board Games
I love to play games. I never really win at Scrabble…but that doesn’t mean I don’t keep trying!
5. Watch A Family Fave Movie
Our annual faves are Planes, Trains and Automobiles, and Elf.
But we recently watched action-packed True Lies and Airforce One again (Amazon Prime). It’s usually some sort of compromise between the men and women (no kids in the mix yet). I mean I’d like to watch The Holiday again… but that won’t fly with our little group. I have been watching some fun/corny romance movies while the guys are watching football…I’ll tell you about them on my Sunday Five Faves.
Have any movie recommendations for me?
6. Make A Toast
At holiday meals, when we were children, my father would make us each stand up and make a toast. It was a little unsettling at the time…but now I enjoy it. Make it brief. “You don’t want to lose your audience”, my dad would say.
Those are our Ideas For Holiday Fun during a pandemic. The light is at the end of the tunnel.
