One of my favorite Holiday Traditions is to dress my kids up in some new clothes for Christmas!
I feel like things have gotten so relaxed when it comes to dressing up, so I love to find any special occasion to dress my kids up a little fancier, especially during the holidays. Janie and Jack always has the best selection for kids when it comes to Holiday outfits for kids (Shop all their looks below)! They always have the cutest clothes perfect for a night out at the nutcracker, church for Christmas Sunday, holiday parties, or a special family night out for the holidays!
I think that how you dress is such a reflection of how you feel and are expected to act. So dressing my kids up for church or special occasions already let’s them know they are expected to behave, ha! But, really how cute do they all look! The boys look so handsome in their suits, and Norah in that coat! I loved picking out each of their outfits!
Christmas time is such a special time for our family, and I always try to take such care in planning the most memorable holidays. We look forward to, and love all the traditions that go along with the season! Trimming the tree, hanging stockings, making holiday treats, writing letters to Santa. It is such a magical time in our household! Having young children only amplifies the magic of the holidays. We currently have a household of believers in our home, which makes Christmas so exciting and my kids anticipate the arrival of Santa Claus! They write him letters, make him special goodies on Christmas Eve, and try to be extra sugary sweet for months in case the big guy is watching. The level of excitement in our house is through the roof!
With our oldest turning 11 next year, I am not sure how much longer we will have believers in our home. It almost feels like it will soon be the end of an era in our family. While I am not quite ready to let go of that innocence and excitement, I know that in the years to come, as we gather around the Christmas tree and look at our Hallmark Keepsakes Ornament with fondness, reliving our magical memories of a simpler time in our lives when there was an abundance of innocence and Christmas Magic in our home!
Thanksgiving is only weeks away, and Friendsgiving is already starting to be celebrated amongst groups of friends. You may have already started planning out your menu, even thinking about pie recipes, but don’t overlook the Thanksgiving table, it is sure to make an impact!
Traditional Fall colors are always a safe bet, but I love to use unexpected colors when putting together a fall table! Choosing a palette that nods to fall but with unexpected color combinations add interest to your table, and grabbing that shot of Thanksgiving pie at the end of the night will be extra “Instagram” worthy!
I have three unique and unexpected Thanksgiving tables that will wow your guests, and be the center of your day of thanks!
