Winter Bucket List 2017

How is it that we are already nearing the end of the year? Where did the year go? Oh, I remember. We moved, grew a garden, did a lot of hiking, traveled a bit, and had a baby. That's where it went ;)

Okay, it's time for my Winter bucket list. All those things we plan on trying to get accomplished or enjoy during this season.

So here goes...

+sledding. we plan on spending lots of time out in the snow (once we get it!).

+bake cookies. 

+watch a bunch of Christmas movies (here's a little list of some of our favorites).

+go on a date with Adam to see the new Star Wars movie when it comes out. We did that when each of the other ones came out last year and the year before. We have to make sure we don't miss the final movie! 

+string popcorn and cranberries for the tree.

+take our yearly trip in February for our birthdays.

+wrap gifts (have to still buy wrapping paper though).

+stock the tea cupboard and make hot chocolate mix.

+make snow ice cream (something fun to do with Adri!).

+get out Christmas cards made and printed. Although, to be honest I'm starting to think I might not have these done on time.

+make a little list of some fun places to visit in January, after all the festivities are over.

+try out some new recipes. Preferably something in the oven, since that helps heat the house ;) 

+make jerky. The next deer Adam shoots we are making the whole thing into venison jerky. 

+read lots of cozy-christmasy books (see list here).

+write out my end of the year blog post. that's a long post to put together and usually take a week or so.
