Hey y'all

Winter is just a little over two weeks away and you know what that means. Family time and a winter bucket list! This time of year can be a bit of a challenge though when it comes to planning out our winter activities. If you know me then you know I am all about planning out family activities when I can. Winter time really is when we don't want to do too much outside the house, and when I say "we", I am referring to my husband and the kiddos that don't like the cold lol. 

My family does not observe Christmas so a lot of local activities outside the house get left off of our calendar. However, just because we (and maybe you) don't partake in the winter time holidays, there are still a lot of fun winter bucket list ideas you can do with your family to shake off the winter blues and have some much needed family time.

Thankfully we are in Texas so it doesn't get too cold- however last year was a bit over the top lol. We had days of below freezing temps, frozen pipes around the metro, no electricity and a lot of accidents. Thankfully we were able to keep warm indoors with our fireplace and spend that down time from work together.

Have you started making your bucket list yet? What are you planning to do with your family this winter? Let me know below!
