Considering Christmas is THIS weekend I thought I would play catch up on some of the Christmas things we have been doing this season. #babybigtruck is 2.5 this year and is really understanding what is going on around her.
I wanted to have the Christmas tree up before I had #babybigtruck2 this year but with her coming so early that did not happen so when it was time to put the tree up her and I were sitting on the side fluffing branches while Mike and #babybigtruck decorated the tree. #babybigtruck was super excited to help and loved looking through all the ornaments we have. She also really loves to play with the Little People Nativity set I got her first Christmas. I have to actually comb through her toys and find all the pieces as she plays with it daily and every day the pieces are somewhere new.
One day while I was at Toys R Us I found a cute Jelly Belly ginger bread house making kit and picked it up for us to do. #babybigtruck loved it and really had so much fun with daddy decorating it and eating the M&M’s along the way.
And of course there is decorating the outside of the house for Christmas. #babybigtruck couldn’t wait to get out there and help her daddy.
Of course there was our annual NYC trip.
And what is becoming another new tradition is Turtle Back Zoo
All of these Christmas traditions are great and I can not wait to see the girls do them year after year and eventually pass them down to their children.
