As my girls get older and I realize that time really does fly when you are a parent, I never believed it until I have seen for myself how quickly our kids grow and you want to hold onto every moment just a little bit longer.
My husband and I are so blessed to have two beautiful girls who truly love each other so much. They show each other how much they truly love one another by doing the little things like; making cards for one another, getting a band-aid when their sister has a boo-boo, or getting a snack for their sister when they get one for themselves. They might make each other cry at times and argue (what siblings don’t fight?) but, in the end they are each other’s best friends and ours, too.
Is anyone else having trouble believing we are in the last few days of 2017?! This year flew by and to be honest, I’m a little sad to see it end. 2017 was a year of ups and downs, but with that came a lot of growth and learning, and exciting new opportunities. I’m excited to see what 2018 will bring.
With the new year comes New Year’s Resolutions. I love to spend some time on New Year’s Eve really thinking about my goals and what I want to accomplish in the coming year. Creating those resolutions is always so exciting – I feel so motivated and energized, like I can do anything. And I hold onto that feeling for the first few weeks, maybe even a month or two, but then it starts to taper off…sound familiar?
Have you seen the fun Elf on the Shelf games that Pressman offers?
“With more than 6.5 million elves sold, the Elf on the Shelf is one of the nation’s favorite Christmas traditions.” I love that these games add to the magic that Christmas brings each year with our favorite elves!
I love gifts that include my kids hands and feet because they will be little for only so long and let’s face it they are not going to let me put paint all over their hands and make art projects with them forever!
We all love Rudolph, don’t we? Turn your little ones into Rudolph with this adorable keepsake craft that anyone would love to receive.
The holiday section of the dollar store is filled with ornaments, ribbons and bows, poinsettia clips and Christmas tree skirts that all can be used to create some fun ugly holiday wear.
Having a theme party does not have to break the bank. Elizabeth Hashagen and Anne Caminti (Momee Friends of Long Island) have some fun ideas for you to create your party with items from your local dollar store.
