December 7, 2016
With Sutton being 2 this Christmas, she is definitely more aware of all of the holiday fun compared to last year! It makes the season all the more fun seeing her be so excited – she is obsessed with Elf on the Shelf, candy canes, and anything with Christmas lights! I know after the holidays end, and we get closer to baby boy’s arrival in March, I will be settling in and going into nest mode. So, I want to make this a super fun time and do as many holiday themed activities with her as I can. It is a perfect time for us to start creating some holiday traditions as our family is growing.
Today I wanted to share all the things we plan on doing this December this holiday season!
It started to rain but Sutton made the most of it!
Her little mini Hunter boots-she wore this pair last season too! So great for kids.
Her cute little bum in this pic.
