A Toddler Christmas

December 21, 2015
The holidays are so much more fun now that we have a little one running around to share them with. Toddlerhood and Holidays go so well together.  Setting up holiday traditions and fun to share each year is so important to me.

Here are some of the traditions we started last year when little man was 6 months old, that of course we'll continue this year.

Setting up the tree


Placing out the nativity


Visiting Santa


Strolling the Neighborhood and taking in the decorations


Christmas Eve Jammies and a Movie


Cookies and Milk with his Santa Letter

And here are some new traditions we started this year now that we have a full fledged toddler running around, loving it all!

All About That Baste

December 12, 2015

We are so thankful for our little turkey. We are having the most fun this year now that you can participate in all our fun traditions!

The night before Thanksgiving we started a NEW tradition: Turkey Pizza! 

It came out just perfect and you LOVED it!

Then it was off to bed in your Turkey PJs, we needed you well rested for the big day!

You woke up bright and early on Thanksgiving and helped Mommy make cinnamon roll Turkeys. 

You LOVED your first cinnamon roll and were on quite the sugar high afterwards, bouncing all over the couch!

Then it was parade time! 

After a nap, it was football time! We got to watch Mommy and Daddy's home teams face off for the Thanksgiving game.

Then it was time to go to Pop Pops and Mimis for Dinner!

You watched some more football, perused the sale ads, played with bubbles, and kept yourself busy until dinner time.

When it was time for dinner you were HUNGRY. You didn't even stop to take a picture, you just gobbled up everything!!

Before we knew it you were exhausted and ready to head home!
