Countdown the holidays.
Countdown the holidays.
For me, the holiday music starts earlier and earlier each year. And, I don’t think it has anything to do with the arrival of Holiday catalogs before Halloween. It’s just me and my sappy self. Well, at least I’ve culled through my collection for you now and picked out the best.
If you’re wanting to celebrate Hanukkah with little children, but you don’t want them around candles or fire, this is a fun craft to let them be involved.
Let’s skip the formal column and go shopping this week instead.
Stocking stuffers are like the cherry on top of the fabulous dessert that is Christmas. They are small treats. Things you don’t really need and wouldn’t buy for yourself, but would love to have.
I LOVE holiday-themed gifts. Loved them as a young child, couldn’t care less about them as a teenager and young adult and have become enamored again now that I am a mom. Moms are suckers for tradition; teenagers, not so much.
So many to choose from. Each one is more adorable than the next.
Time to cuddle up this weekend and watch some Holiday Movies. Here are our favorite three.
Alpha Mom sends out its first Holiday Card. Get a sneak peek.
Ring in the Christmas season with fun homemade wreaths crafted from repurposed household items you can find in your own recycling bin! One man’s trash is another man holiday trimming!
Don’t forget to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on the telly. I was able to get an up close look at giant balloons with my son. And, now the Holidays have officially begun for me.
Newborns and holidays = quadruple the insanity. No, I’m not sure why that math works either.
You know what? With preschoolers they’re a bit more likely to be equally as excited about the actual gift as the box and packaging. I mean, maybe.
We let an actual 13-month-old write this guide, so you know it’s good. Or at least won’t contain any big words.
We created two free printable calendars customizable to reflect your family’s own celebration of the holidays. One calendar is a gingerbread house with 24 days to count down until Xmas and the other calendar is a winter village with eight window openings to celebrate the days of Hanukkah. Enjoy!
It’s the most. Wonderful time. Of the year!
Thanksgiving kid crafter alert.
