24 Things To Do in December

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!

Her little mini Hunter boots-she wore this pair last season too! So great for kids.
