I’m so excited to start Christmas traditions with our family! I just love Christmas and I think having children makes it so much more exciting and wonderful! Lucas is still young, so we really haven’t started any fun traditions yet. But I want to!
We decided that we are going to get our kids three gifts each, every year. I hope we can keep it like that until they are teenagers! We’ll see… but I think this is great because everyone knows what to expect and we won’t go crazy buying things. I actually got this idea from Simple Mom- she said they do three gifts for each kid- one book, one handmade item and one toy. I think we’ll keep it general for now as far as the gifts go and maybe make it more specific as they get older. (And I really don’t make much and I buy books all the time…)
I want to decorate for Christmas and get our tree the weekend after Thanksgiving. Unfortunately that didn’t happen this year but I hope this weekend we will be able to decorate.
I want to get matching Christmas pajamas for my boys! Oh the cuteness!!
aI would love to hear what special things you and your family do every year. I need some ideas!
