My thoughts are towards Christmas today. I know Thanksgiving is on Thursday but today I want to start getting out the Christmas Decorations and creating a fun Christmas environment.
Now my husband and I talked about the idea of getting a tree this year and we are still not sure. Last year the boys were barely 9 months and weren’t really into grabbing things from the tree BUT THIS YEAR they are little 20 month old toddlers who like to grab everything in sight.
My thought was to buy a small fake tree and put in on top of our piano so we (I) don’t have to keep after the boys all day long.
Another mom mentioned that it would be a good idea to have a tree on the ground so we can teach the boys to follow directions. Good point but I’m still not sure what we are gonna do.
What do you do with all the holiday cards you get? I usually put the cards on the inside of our front door and it’s just a nice way to see the great cards/photocards all during the month of December.
A cute idea I found on WomansDay.com was to create a wreath made out of clothespins and have clip the cards on. I’m not sure if that will work with all the cards we get. Here’s the link if you want to see what it looks like: Homemade Christmas Card Holder – Holiday Craft Ideas on WomansDay.com
What are some fun holiday decorations or traditions that you’re family does? I’d love to hear them!
