The countdown has begun and New Year’s Eve is literally days away. If you’re planning on celebrating at home with the family, there are a few ways you can add a festive flair to the occasion. My son is only 2-years-old but enjoys taking part in all of the family activities that occur before each and every holiday.
This year we will be going all out by hosting our own little family New Year’s party! With a little help from Disney and Disney Baby, I’ve rounded up some fun activities, printables and templates that are not only free, but so easy to to put together. The beauty of each and every one of these is that they’re suitable for kids and adults of all ages.
Happy crafting and don’t forget to ring in the New Year with style!
I’m not one for making New Year’s resolutions, instead I’m a firm believer that if there’s something you want to change in your life you should do it stat instead of waiting for the first day of the first month of the year. Life’s too short to make resolutions once a year!
That being said, I’m far from perfect and have quite a few things I’d like to change in my life. This year, I’m reflecting of all of the good and not so good from 2013, so instead of resolutions, I’ve decided to make a list of 10 things that I want more of in 2014 and 10 things that I want less of for myself and my family.
What things do you want more of and less of in 2014?
Are you still basking in the magic from yesterday morning? We are! Last year was amazing, but this year was even better! As my son grows he shows a new appreciation for Christmas and the gifts under the tree.
Once my son opened his first gift, he was done. The surprise was so pure and he was in such shock that he just stared at it and gave that one toy his full attention. Needless to say, my 2-year-old was the last one opening gifts. Thank goodness for sisters who love to rip open packages, because I don’t think he would have opened them all if it weren’t for them.
Here’s a little look at our Christmas morning. Wishing you continued magic this holiday season. It isn’t over yet!
I find the entire process of baby naming so incredibly fascinating. Whether it be a traditional name or something completely different, names based on trends, celebrities or sentimental locations, every child has a name that usually comes with a story.
If you’re curious as to what the trends are for 2014, I have some great news — you don’t have to wait! Nameberry has released some of their predictions for the upcoming year, and I think you’ll find them just as fascinating as I did.
One of the most interesting trends I think are the boy’s names for girls. Apparently many girls have been given traditional boy’s names as their middle name. I’m not quite sure how I feel about that, but it’s definitely an interesting twist! Click through for more super cool trends for the upcoming year.
If I had to do it all over again and choose a theme for my nursery, it would most definitely be Winnie the Pooh. My favorite bear is so gender neutral and all of the decor, nursery and toy items featuring Pooh and Friends are suitable for boys or girls, which make them so easy to pass down. As a mom of two girls and one boy, I can attest to the beauty of hand-me-downs. They save you such a bundle in the long run!
With its fresh appeal, soft colors, and adorable prints, the Sunny Hunny Day nursery set is the cutest addition to your nursery, and it’s very affordable. The four-piece set is available now through Babies”R”Us. If you’re like me and you prefer to see what’s included in a “set” before you purchase it, click through as I go through each piece one by one.
