Now that Halloween is behind us, we are in full swing holiday mode. Holiday music can already be heard playing on the radio, and most stores are already decked with festive decor. The holidays are the best time of year when you’re a kid. All the wonder of wish lists, glittering lights, snow days, and shiny presents full of possibilities. From baking cookies to family parties to cozy pajama mornings, there are so many sweet and magical moments.
We have so many fun, holiday themed plans over the next two months, which we are all just looking so forward to! Over the years, our family of five has seemed to gather a number of traditions. Siella, my mom, and I always attend a showing of The Nutcracker at Lincoln Center. Ryder and I have a special hot chocolate date at the Rockefeller Center Ice Skating Rink. We all goto the Radio City Spectacular Show in early December, which immediately reinforces that holiday spirit. And we bake a ton of cookies for our friends and family.
This year, the kids are a little older, so I asked them what they love so much about holiday time. And I was shocked by their unanimous response. Sure they love the presents, but they all said spending time with our family makes them really happy. My heart nearly melted! It’s usually the one and only time of year that we can just relax and enjoy one another’s company.
Holiday time is also fun for dressing up the kiddies in cozy matching pajamas, and some festive, bright outfits! This year Gymboree has cozy essentials, and cool looks for all of your holiday celebrations. They’ve got you covered for the low-key nights watching Christmas movies, as well as big family dinners.
This year has been the year of the unicorn for the girls. I’m quite the fan too, so when I saw these unicorn sweater pieces from Gymboree, I knew the girls would flip over them. Siella’s sweater and skirt, and Gemma’s dress are just darling. They are cozy and comfortable, with just right amount of glitz and sparkle!
Sure, there’s nothing like experiencing the holidays as a kid, but its a pretty special time to be a parent. I plan on cherishing each and every moment of this magical time with them.
