Have you met Santa yet? Are you ready for Christmas?

Have you started your Christmas decorations yet? For us we get started on it right after Thanksgiving if we are still in town. This time around it was raining all through Saturday and Sunday and it seemed like a perfect time to get the Christmas tree and ornaments out – Need less to say we use a fake tree… We set it up and let our little once put ornaments on the tree…. First experience for my 2 year old! They had an awesome time doing this…. So we are set with out Christmas tree, luckily we also put up the lights outside the house on Saturday morning before it started pouring… But I still have to get the gifts and put their stockings out….

It is always a problem to get some great stocking stuffers which makes the kids jump with joy, and I am just starting to look around…. Here are some of my favorites from Amazon….

Melissa & Doug Family Dinner Questions - A perfect way to make family dinners interesting!!

Foam Glider Assortment - A perfect gift for Christmas parties!!
