It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Tomorrow is the first day of October, and the beginning of my favorite time of the year! I love seeing fall roll around. Know why? I love holidays, family traditions, and the fun of celebrating with my family. When October rolls around I know that I have two kids with birthdays that we will be celebrating, Halloween, Thanksgiving, my husband’s birthday, my brother’s birthday, Christmas, and then New Years. All that holiday fun is rolled up in three months of busyness that I absolutely love.

I grew up as a child of divorced parents, and my holidays were always spent shuffling from one parent’s holiday party to the other. I would open my Christmas presents on Christmas morning, play with them for an hour or two and then shuffle off to my grandparent’s house to open presents with my Dad’s family. Holidays were not fun and relaxing for me as a child, they were busy. I am not saying my parents were wrong, they did the best that they could, but I want more than that for my children. I want holiday traditions that my kids can enjoy year after year.

I am always looking for new holiday traditions for my kids, and am constantly on the lookout for them. Pinterest is a huge time suck for me but is so much fun and is full of great ideas for new holiday traditions. I am also loving American Profile it has a vast array of seasonal holiday articles that offer some great ideas for holidays as well.

For now, let they holiday partying (and planning) begin!
