Getting Ready for the Holidays

Friday, November 30, 2012


It's the end of November and now the holidays are officially here.  If you have any children, a good way to get them involved is to have them help you decorate the inside and outside of your house for what ever holiday that you will be celebrating.

I have a daughter who is almost 13 years old and today after school we will be having a tree decorating party with her friends.  It is a good way to get the kids involved and they will have fun and won't feel like it is a chore.  I think this is a good idea because we have been doing this for a few years now and we all just have fun and the kids will remember this.  It's about making memories and traditions!

What I also like about decorating for the holidays is that you can make homemade decorations such as garland or ornaments.  If you start early than you can use them for that year, but you have to start in September or October, because if you wait to long then you won't have enough time to do everything else or use the decorations for that year.  To get good ideas you need to search online and to buy craft magazines.  When you make your own decorations it just makes the holidays more special.  So enjoy everyone and I hope you make some holiday decorations for your house!
