Go you! If I were to make a list like that (unless I made it on super kawaii paper) I would be loosing it right now. I have a list in my head but only have to look at one thing at a time and then at the next thing-- your list is overwhelming! Otherwise it is awesome and fun. Plus it reminds me that one of my favorite things about winter is when the pond freezes over-- free ice skating!!!! Now to go clean the kitchen so I can bake bread and make cheese.

Wow! What a list! I'm glad to see that you are observing St. Nick day. We are too for the first time. I like your idea of making St. Nick gingerbread men. Do you have a cutter or are you making typical gingerbread men?

PS- making gingerbread houses with Nana is on our list too!
