Kid Friendly for the Holidays

November 21, 2012

This week has been a whirlwind, to say the least, and I’m looking forward to the weekend already! This month has simply flown by and I think it’s time to get serious about my holiday planning. I really don’t want the kids to miss out on any of our family traditions due to my busy new schedule so it will definitely take some forethought to be ready for December. Rachel and I each made an advent calendar last year and I think I’ll tuck some little notes inside the buckets this time ’round, to be sure that we take time for the little things like making paper chains, hanging mistletoe and ice skating each day. Here’s some more family-friendly inspiration…

Oh Happy Day

The shop is so festive and smells of fresh cut cedar boughs right now and it’s really getting me into the spirit of things. The kids are counting down until we make our family trek to the local tree farm to find our perfect tree in a couple of weeks, one of our favourite outings each year! We’re also counting down until my new niece or nephew arrives…a perfect bundle, just in time for Christmas :)

Hi Lily…Hope you’re doing great! I’m no longer running Nicole Jane Home, and I’m writing a new blog now, where I just nominated you for the Sunshine Blog Award.

Oh congrats on having a new baby in the family soon! I hear you on making sure there is enough time for family things.

This is the first time in 5 years that Darryl and I have not had a major reno going on before Christmas. I was grouting our ktichen counter on the 24th one year!

WE feel very at peace with this decision…..
