It’s cold. Oh so bitterly cold! Looking out my window, all I see is white stuff and as I type away at the computer, my fingers and toes are chilled. Speaking of toes, the last purchase I made was for a pair of warm and cuddly slippers for my son. He has a habit of stripping down to his diaper – even in the colder months – so it’s important that we keep his feet warm.
Slip-on slippers without a back are not the greatest choice, as they can cause trips and falls and you need to make sure that they have a textured bottom to prevent slips. Luckily, I’ve found the perfect pairs! If you are looking for a sweet (and warm) holiday gift – these are perfect!
Not only are new pajamas one of my favorite purchases of the season, but so are Christmas ornaments. Ever since my daughter was a baby, each year I purchased a special ornament for her to put on the tree. It’s one of my favorite holiday traditions, as with it comes the ability to relive countless memories as we place each one on the tree. When Lola was born, it only made sense that we extend our tradition. Last year was the first year I picked out Christmas ornaments for my daughters, and it was indeed quite magical. As a little girl I loved seeing my special ornaments on the tree, and I am grateful to get to experience this with my own children. My hope is that the ornaments that adorn our tree year after year will become family heirlooms and beautiful reminders of their childhoods.
The Disney Store has a variety of holiday ornaments, ranging from classic and simple to oh-so fancy. Some of them are just perfect for the two and under crowd. Recently Lola was gifted a Doc McStuffins ornament from the Disney Store. It’s not only adorable but of great quality, sure to last for Christmases to come. Here are some of the ornaments available for purchase at the Disney Store.

When I was a baby, my mom and my aunt began a holiday tradition that is now continuing into its second generation. It is a beautiful and simple tradition, but one that has decorated my own holiday tree, and thus my holidays, with special memories. Each year from my first Christmas onward, my mom and my aunt went to Hallmark and chose ornaments for each other’s children, and our two families would get together each year to unwrap them and find out what would be on our tree. My brother and I have an ornament from each year of our childhood, as do my cousins.
Taking the ornaments out of their storage boxes and hanging them on the tree each year is still one of my favorite holiday traditions, simply looking at each one as I place it on the tree, and remembering which year it was, and what I was doing then, and what I liked. There are quite a lot of Winnie the Pooh ornaments, as the Pooh stories have always had a special place in my heart. As I looked through the Hallmark ornament selection this year, I was delighted to see that there was a Baby’s First Christmas ornament featuring my favorite bear.
When it comes to nursery decor, I like anything out of the ordinary. Typically, I’m not an “all blue” or “all pink” girl. I like to mix things up a bit and create a room that is special and unique. Melissa of Love Like Johnny & June created the sweetest bright and cheery nursery for her baby boy, Henry. With white walls and bright pops of color, she was able to put together such a fun space for her new son. Click through to see all of the amazing details!
