Last Minute Tips to Help You Have a Merry Christmas
Last Minute Tips
to Help You Have a Merry Christmas We have compiled a few last minute tips to help you have a Merry Christmas. You know how Santa makes a list, and he checks it twice, well that is exactly what you need to do. There are a few “Must Do’s” you need to check off that list! If you have not finished shopping yet, get that done first! If you have not mailed out any gifts/cards, that needs to happen ASAP. When your shopping and mailing is done, it is time for some fun holiday activities. Baking comes next, then watching your favorite Christmas movies, followed by looking at Christmas lights.
Finish Shopping If you are like me, you may have some shopping to do between now and Christmas Eve. Be sure to check your list and note any gifts you need to buy. Making a grocery list would be ideal at this time as well. Before heading out, think about where you need to go and what is close by. You can map out the best shopping area to maximize your time. For some, it may be best to have a shopping buddy to divide and conquer that list, or maybe going alone is best for you. Whatever you do make a plan and get it done.
Bake Now that the shopping and mailing is done, it is time to BAKE! Every year we have our favorite recipes we like to make, and not all of them require baking. Our number one must have are Oreo Cookie Balls, they are not only easy to make, but kids can help make them as well. Another treat I love to bake is Magic Cookie Bars, they are truly the best! Baking Sugar Cookies and decorate them is a must at this time of the year! Try baking something new this year. Thanks to Instagram, I saw a post about this delicious treat "Texas Trash Pie", which I will be making soon. When I read "a combination of sweet and salty flavors and creamy and crunchy textures, this unique pie has become a Southern favorite", I was sold! Do not neglect this step, because you will want to have some yummy treats to munch on when watching your favorite Christmas movies and take with you when you go look at Christmas lights.
