Favorite Christmas Movies, Playlist and Traditions

It’s almost Christmas!!! 12 more days!!!! Can you believe it??  That means Christmas movies and the Christmas playlist are on rotation to get me in the Christmas Spirit!  There are so many wonderful Christmas movies… but the following ones are my favorite Christmas movies!


Now my Ultimate Christmas Playlist! I just whipped up this Christmas playlist on Spotify.  It’s an upbeat Christmas playlist with a mix of new and classic Christmas favorites!


– Decorating cookies and leaving a note for Santa

– Waiting at the top of the stairs until Patty and Bill tell us to come down!

Gingerbread House Decorating Competition

– Coloring in our Christmas Coloring Books

– Making Nanny’s Spaghetti

– Playing Bananagrams

– Going on walks all bundled up

– Cuddling

Here are some pictures from the last few Christmases!  I can’t even wait for another NANTUCKET Christmas!  I hope it is a white one :)

P.S. I said Christmas 15 times in this post. I CAN’T WAIT FOR CHRISTMAS! …16

Lausanne Christmas Market

It certainly is beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here in Lausanne. And I am just loving it! There are lights and Christmas trees going up, there is usually a light snow dusting every morning, and the Christmas markets have officially started! We have been seeing the booths being set up for weeks now but it didn’t open until last weekend! So, we took a study break and headed down there one night for some hot wine, raclette (a traditional Swiss dish of potatoes drenched in raclette cheese!), and waffles for dessert as we wandered through the market looking at what each booth had to offer. And I may or may not have picked up a few Christmas gifts for my family!
