I LOVE the holidays. It’s my favorite time of year because of all the family! I’m a fan of traditions too – old traditions and making new ones. Christmas for us was the one time of year that we got really dressed up. My mom would often dress us up on Christmas Eve to visit some grandparents (I think because she didn’t want to get us all dressed up after waking her up at 5am on Christmas). I loved going around and seeing all our extended family in some of my best dresses – it just felt like the holidayss, like it’s what we were supposed to do and it made our visits that much more special.
Now that I have my own kids, I love dressing them up too. How cute is my youngest in this little man outfit from Macy’s?! He actually does like wearing “handsome clothes” to visit grandparents because they fuss over how cute he looks. I love that the holidays can be a little less traditional with fun colors like these (and more likely to be approved by him).
I had found some photos of mine when getting out the Christmas decorations and it brought back all kinds of holiday memories for me. Visiting family, dressing up, dinners, plays, giving back, staying up late, baking and music during the holidays are some of my favorite childhood memories. I love being a Mom and sharing these memories and traditions with my kids.
I don’t know if it’s the tradition of getting dressed up for the holidays, or just the attention he gets when doing it, but the Christmas Eve “handsome outfit” has definitely become a tradition for us too. We also do matching Christmas jammies each year though I’m not sure how much longer that will last. Childhood is so short and quick – I just want to bottle it all up!
