It’s no secret that Melissa and I absolutely love the holiday season. To us, it really is one of the most special times of the year. The holidays mean more time with family, especially extra quality time with our children, giving thanks for our blessings, big family meals, baking holiday treats, and upholding the family traditions we cherish.
First off, we always buy some new cozy Christmas PJs. This year we found the cutest 1 pc footed PJs at Carter’s | OshKosh. They have them in all sizes, so from our 8-month-old babe to our 7-year-old, everyone got a comfy suit. Once they put on these pjs they pretty much want to live in them, they’re that soft and cozy. Carter’s | OshKosh has so many great prints and festive styles to choose from.
One thing we always celebrate is Christmas firsts. It’s just so special to us. This year is Minnie’s first Christmas, and we’ll be celebrating this occasion along with our other holiday traditions. Carter’s | OshKosh is always our go to for kid’s clothing because they’re wonderfully consistent. They always have what we’re looking for with relation to seasons and style. The biggest plus is that their clothing is affordable and adorable. They also always have “baby’s firsts” themed clothing, which we love to celebrate.
Some of our other favourite traditions are baking holiday sugar cookies, and of course we leave out a few for Santa on Christmas Eve. Our kids also love holiday lights, so on those extra snowy December nights we tour our neighbourhoods and local parks to see all the magical lights. Fluffy snow and Christmas lights are such a beautiful site. We also enjoy going to our local churches to give thanks for our many blessing.
Like many families, we also enjoy big Christmas meals. They can be a huge undertaking, but so worth the enjoyment on everyone’s faces.
One thing I never thought I would do before having Minnie, was buy matching outfits for my kids. BUT now that I have an 8-month-old daughter and a 6-year-old daughter, I just can’t resist. It’s so fun that Carter’s | OshKosh has outfits ranging from baby to size 14, so if you want to do a little holiday twinsies with your littles, you can. We may have bought a few matching outfits.
We hope you and your families have the most beautiful holidays! And if you’re looking for comfy pjs and fashionable outfits, you’ll find everything you need at Carter’s | OshKosh.
