Ever since having children, most of our Christmas traditions are understandably more geared towards them.

It’s great. I love seeing them experience the wonder of Christmas. I do, however, want to make sure that I make an effort to plan some small things that foster connecting with just my husband. This year I have come up with a "12 Days of Christmas" list for the tall one and I to do together, and that you can use for you and your special someone as well!

*Twelve things I love about you. You can write them down, share them over coffee or sing them in a song!

*Eleven days of prepping the coffee pot for the morning. Each night have everything ready for fresh coffee as soon as your spouse wakes up.

*Ten minutes of massage.

*Nine chocolates in the shape of something (i.e. a heart, a snowflake, etcetera).

*Eight Christmas songs on the play list to listen to while driving around on a twinkle tour.

*Seven pictures of you enjoying Christmas decorations or activities around town. You can even put them in a digital collage when you’re done!

*Six snowballs each. Game on. All is fair in love and war.

*Five blocks to walk on a lovely snowy eve, or five laps around the skating rink or pond.

*Four mini marshmallows in your cups of peppermint hot chocolate that you enjoy by your roaring fire, or T.V. version of a fire.

*Three new ornaments for your tree. One to represent your past, one for your present and one for your future. (Groan: that’s really sappy but I can’t help it. I’ve been watching too many “rom com” Christmas movies.)

*Two cheesy Christmas movies. A double feature on one night. It's a good idea to stock up on some holiday treats like candy cane popcorn, mixed nuts and hot cider.

*One “together gift” under the tree. Something that will keep you connecting all year long.

I can’t wait to start a new tradition and enjoy a special “couple countdown” to Christmas!
