12 Days: Christmas Cards {with a side of fun}

Simply St.Augustine is counting down the 12 days ’til Christmas!  I’ll share 12 ways I’m celebrating Christmas in St. Augustine starting today!

You better believe we’re counting down!  The advent calendar is filling up and the advent candles are burning down.  We’re celebrating Christ’s birth all month long but the extra fun day {read: presents} is in 12 days!!

Want to count down with me?  I’ll share something our family is doing to celebrate Christmas each day between now & the 25th.

12 Days ’til Christmas: CHRISTMAS CARDS!

Burger King Playground CR210

As my local readers know, it’s been rainy this week.  The littles are getting increasingly antsy, so we headed to Burger King on CR210 for some playtime! I spread out my Christmas Card supplies and wrote notes while Lauren (11 now! Happy Birthday Lauren!) addressed & stamped them.

It’s a busy time of year and Christmas cards can feel like “one more thing” to do- but our kids look forward to opening them and seeing pictures of friends near & far.  They pretty much stalk the mailman each day and race out when they see him come. 😉 As we open the cards, we pray for the family who sent them and thank God for our friends!

The only local spots I know of with indoor play areas:

If you know of another, comment on this post & I’ll update for everyone to see!

    Great idea! I might be meeting you up at the playground one day soon.

    I just remembered — The Avenues mall has a great indoor playground for little kids – probably 5 and under. Love that place.
