Love them Holidays

Oh the holiday season is upon us. I absolutely love this time of year! Always have and hopefully always will. Here are a few things that I enjoy from the start to the end. For one, the food, come on, you got to love. the. food. One year we did ham for Thanksgiving, then Christmas we had turkey. I think I like it the other way around. The way it is supposed to be. My oldest asked me if we were having ham for Thanksgiving. Nope, I want to do turkey again. Can we please have ham for Christmas? Why yes child, yes, we shall have ham. Last year, Little L couldn’t eat alot. She tried out the mashed potatoes, the sweet potatoes and had a little bit of cream from one of the pies. She is a lover of her momma’s mashed taters now. No box of instant for this family, nope they have to be real potatoes, or my hubby won’t eat them. She is not too fond of sweet potatoes tho. She loved them when she was trying out new food, but now, can’t get her to touch them. Oh well, will try again here soon enough. I never could get Oldest to eat them once she got on to solid food. I just don’t know why. She is and always has been way too picky about her food.

Stores are filled with pretties! I love to walk the isles of the stores and eww and awww over all the goodies they bring in. Oldest and I play around with the hats and take pictures. We have a good time being silly. I also say I want practically everything they have. I love decorations. I have crates and crates of ornaments that I have collected over the years.

Christmas Crafts. We love doing crafts around the holidays. Oldest and I went to Michael’s craft store the other day andΒ  picked out some foam craft projects for Christmas. They were having really good sales so we had to do it. Only bought 2, may go back and get another. We started on one last night after Little L went to bed. We both can’t wait till she is older and can play with us. Right now, we would be missing pieces and she would be trying to eat them, if we let her participate. Two years ago, I found a Nativity Scene in Kmart that you had to paint. We had a blast working on it together. Love those memories!

Decorating the house. My hubby hates when I say pull all the crates out. He will do it though, because 1. He knows I will keep bugging him until he does and 2. He knows how much I love to decorate. The only bad part is that this year, I won’t be able to put as much out as I have in the past. Little L will not leave things alone. She is pretty tall and if she wants it, she will find a way to get it. I have a sofa table that sits empty now thanks to her long reach. Where am I going to put my Nativity Scene??

Putting up the tree. πŸŽ„πŸŽΆOH Christmas tree oh Christmas tree…🎢 We have a 7ft. artificial that was given too us by a lady I used to work with. This will make its 4th Christmas with us. It is huge and already has the lights on it. I told oldest that we may not put any ornaments on it this year, since L still puts things in her mouth. She was a bit disappointed but understood. Oldest was really good around the tree when she was that age, so L might surprise me… nah…

Christmas music. Yes, I love Christmas music. I have heard all the moans and groans when they start to play it, but it just gets you in the mood of being jolly and festive. When I worked, a lot of the employees would fuss when the radio station went to holiday music. Not me, I looked forward to it. Even last night, when we were doing our family time, oldest and I were singing Christmas songs to Little L. Daddy joined in and even L started singing.

Last but not least,

Driving around the neighborhoods looking at the lights. I love doing this, everything is so pretty and lit up. Some people go all out and some keep it nice and simple. Either way, I love the show.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and a great start to this holiday season! πŸ— β›„Β  πŸŽ… πŸŽ„ πŸŽ€

  3. We put our tree in a playpen when my youngest – and wildest – was 13 months old at Christmas time. He stood on the side, held on to the top rail and beat the tree with a baseball bat.
