The New Year is a great time of year to start fresh in all aspects of your life. Today's post I am concentrating on things you can do to help your home run smoothly all year.
It's amazing how much one year can make a difference. Just last year Sophia was only around 5 months old, sitting in her Bumbo chair in front of the Christmas tree and this year she will be able to sit on her own and open her gifts by herself on Christmas morning, crazy! When compiling her Christmas list we took into consideration the fact that during the winer months in PA there is basically no going outside for any extended period of time, so we had to find something new and fun for her to do indoors.
One of my absolute favorite memories as far back as I can remember is the tradition of going to chop down a Christmas tree each year with my parents and brother. Each year the 1st weekend in December we would pile in the car and make the three minute drive to our favorite tree farm to look for the perfect Christmas tree.
Now that Sophia is getting older I have been looking for more opportunities/activities for us to do as a family. While we do a good bit in the warmer months; as soon as it starts to get cold I feel like we stay indoors a lot and since Sophia was less than a year old last year at this time; we hadn't even attempted to look for many activities for colder months.
