first…I wanted to tell you where I got about half my christmas shopping done at! Zulily!
I love them! They have great varieties of everything! Truly something for everyone! and I don’t know about you..but Frozen stuff is SCARCE in my small town…and zulily has a ton of it!
and Right now they have a little red present on items to show you that it is guaranteed before christmas! woot!
okay..on with the show.
One of my most favoritest traditions is one my mom started! Each year in your stocking we got an ornament. Something that represents us for that year. If we did volleyball that year…or got our drivers license, I have a telephone one (I was 14!) After we got married my mom packed up all those ornaments and gave them to me to decorate our first little tree.
and I knew that looking at that little tree with all those memories on it would be a tradition that i would FORCE onto my kids!
Like the year my daughter was Barbie Ro for Halloween
Some years i can’t find exactly what i want, so i get creative (picture me screwing an i-hook into a littlest pet shop head. Last year i even diyed my kids with sculpey (go HERE)
and it’s actually my kids favorite part about setting up the christmas tree–they each get a bag that is filled with their ornaments
(i also stick their homemade ones they make in school)
