Five days until Christmas arrives! And really, all I’m dreaming about right now is a long winter’s nap. However, I am determined to fully do Blogmas.
My favorite traditions around here are giving my kids matching Christmas pajamas and a book on Christmas Eve.
Last year, I broke down and even got our little gray cat her very own stocking.
Decorating is also one of my favorite traditions especially the tree although this year it’s still looking a little bare. Tonight, J mentioned we needed some ornaments on it. So this weekend maybe a child will actually help me hang ornaments. We did get a new star since the old one was a bit too heavy for the new tree.
And finally, a newer tradition I enjoy is the Elf on The Shelf. I probably enjoy it as I didn’t start it until J’s 5th grade year (his teacher had one and he came home saying “we should get one” and I knew the magic would be gone soon enough. So I went ahead with the idea.)
And again, cutting my post short. One more crazy, full-moon, day before break, first day of winter work day and then, I can relax. Or rather catch up on everything!
