Things I would like to do this holiday season

In an effort to make the holidays more enjoyable for me... I am compiling a list of things I want to do to maximize the smiles, minimize the tears.

~ Go Ice Skating (Ideally I would love to go to my hometown which is about 5 hours away and ice skate in the middle of the night with big fluffy snowflakes on the public rink with no one around and a big thermos of hot cocoa. But I can settle for a public skate at an indoor rink for a couple of hours)

~Go Sledding

~Actually send my Christmas cards this year

~ Have all my Christmas shopping done by Dec 5th.

~ Keep my room smelling like Apple-Cinnamon :)

~ Take Trax down to Temple Square, bundle up and see all the lights at Temple Square

~ Watch the following movies with great Christmas scenes: Miracle on 34th, Little Women, The Holiday, You've Got Mail

~ Completely avoid all movies that involve leg lamps and bunny suits. (Am I the only one that can't stand that movie?)

What is on your list of things to do to enjoy the holidays? What makes you smile?

Can I just tell you how happy I am to hear that I am not the only one that dislikes A Christmas Story?!?!?

To be absolutely honest and opening myself to crazy criticism...(in a tiny whisper) i don't think i've seen A Christmas Story all the way thru! There, it's out in the open.

My fav must-do's for the holiday's are 1)christmas songs 24-7, 2)baking cookies (yum), 3) watch Christmas Vacation (love it!)

I also want to get my shopping done by the 5th, it'll be a first if I manage to!
