I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas spent with loved ones and full of wonderful memory making moments. As it is the end of December it is time to share an update on my monthly goal. You can read the details of my goal here.
This month I wanted to focus on family and it went pretty well overall. I ended up being able to do 8 of the 10 items that I had on my list.
- Cut down a fresh Christmas tree and decorate it ✔️
- Write letters to Santa ✔️
- Book countdown ✔️
- Bake & decorate Christmas cookies for neighbours ✔️
- Watch family favourite Christmas movies ✔️
- Go look at Christmas Lights X
- Visit the CP Holiday Train X
- Photos with Santa ✔️
- Christmas eve picnic by the Christmas tree ✔️
- Watch a live nativity pageant ✔️
Unfortunately, the holiday train came by at a time when we were in the midst of a deep freeze. It also happened to be the day that Jacob got his tongue clipped so we had to forego going to see it. We also haven’t had a chance to go look at Christmas lights yet but there are still a few days of the month left so it may still happen.
Our family has been working hard to simplify Christmas time and while we still have a long way to go I feel like we made some progress this year. I am looking forward to making next December even more focused on family.
As the year comes to a close it is fun to look back at how my goals for each month have gone. You can find an update on each month here:
No October Goal
I think that it has been a fairly good year overall; I did accomplished some goals and some I did not. Just like how life goes!
How did you do on your 2016 goals?
