The 12 Days of Christmas {love notes for your spouse)

Can you believe we are less than 2 weeks out from Christmas?!? I can't!! It seems like this month has been flying by faster than a sleigh on greased runners! (Can you tell we've been listening to old Christmas stories?)

Anyway, if my calculations are correct, there are 12 days left before we celebrate Jesus' birthday! So, it's not too late to start with a final countdown of activities or stories or daily gifts.

Last year I did a fun 12 Days of Christmas poem for my husband based on the song. I printed out the poem, cut it into strips and gave him a little piece on his pillow or nightstand or bathroom counter each day. I think he had fun looking forward to the next little phrase, and it builds just like the song does.

I've adapted it slightly to be used by more people, and you can get your very own to share with your spouse over the next 12 or so days.

Here's a little preview of the first 8 days. :-)

You can download the PDF copy here. Just print, cut apart and give in whatever fun and creative way you can come up with! (And y'all, try not to laugh at my silly writing and rhyming. Or, at least, laugh about it together.)  :-)

Enjoy your Christmas countdown!
