In September, I start preparing for how I want the holiday to go. I shop early. I plan early. I make lists.
But first things first, I schedule how I’m going to create some holiday magic for my children.
First, I must shop. Since I have a Hallmark Gold Crown card, I head to my nearest Hallmark store to get my holiday items. It requires several hours to make my decisions. C’mon, it’s HALLMARK!! So many of their items are collectible. All of the items are adorable. Many of them are very affordable!!
My family has one of the original singing Snowmen sold by but this one with the cookies and the baker. So sweet!!
I have many pillows to decorate my couches but this one that says This HOME Believes might be my new favorite!
Since I work for the city in dispatch, a radio to the North Pole belongs in my house. It relays several holiday messages for your children to hear throughout the season. I think it needs to come to work with me…
But after all was said and done, I had to make a decision. Here’s what I got to help celebrate the holidays in our house:
I’ll be updating my blog with the photos of the itty bittys. I think this will be our newest holiday tradition!!
Happiest of holidays to you!
Many thanks to Hallmark Gold Crownfor sponsoring today’s story and encouraging me to try out their newest holiday items!!!
if you join my mailing list, you'll get to be among the elite who are "in the know" about Netflix shows and as a BONUS hear all the crazy stories about my life as a full-time mom and part-time park ranger. Good stuff!!
WOOHOO!! You win at life and are now on my Christmas list!
