It’s here, y’all! Christmas break has started for Ayva and Terrence, and it’s just hours away for me. This is totally the time of the year to reconnect with family, and have some pure, unfiltered fun. I know it’s still crazy busy for a lot of folks with Christmas coming up in just a few days, but at this point, we should all be taking a chill pill and relaxing. I know that it can be intimidating, though, with so many folks showing their super perfect, stylized Christmas vacations on Instagram, and their outrageously amazing Christmas crafts and cookies, but if that ain’t you, that ain’t you. And I gotta say, that ain’t me. My family is simple and easy to please, and I’m not planning activities based on how social media attractive they are.
If you need some ideas of REAL things that you can do with your family over the Christmas break, I’ve got you covered. Nothing on this list needs to be done perfectly. Shoot, last year, we didn’t decorate our gingerbread house until after Christmas when the craft store was practically giving away kits (Yes, kits. We decorated a gingerbread house that we made from a kit.)
