My Holiday To-Do List

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

I recently wrote an article for Chicago Parent, 10 Can’t-Miss Holiday Experiences. I was limited to a top ten, but here are a few more items on my Holiday To-Do list:

  1. Hop in the car and buzz over to XOCO for churros and a hot cocoa Mexican-style (not because this a particularly Christmas-y thing to do, but because I’m always looking for an excuse for churros!).
  2. Bake some gingerbread people.
  3. Host a Gingerbread House Making Party for my kids and their friends: I’ll supply the gingerbread houses and ask each guest to bring a bag of a cool candy for decorating.
  4. Drinks and chestnuts roasting over an open fire at the Four Seasons’ Seasons Loungewith my hubby.
  5. A family visit to the new Armour exhibit at the Art Institute, followed by lunch at the Russian Tea Room.
  6. Lunch date with my son at his fave downtown place for a burger, Flemings.
  7. An It’s a Wonderful Life movie night.
  8. And finally, lots of down time at home with my family!

Is it Christmas break yet? What’s on your holiday to-do list?
