A few great Christmas ideas....for next year!

So every year the boys and I make a new homemade Christmas ornament.  I just found this idea of a Time Capsule Ornament!  Isn't this cool...I am totally doing this next year!  Sorry grandparents try to forget that I said that. 

Growth Tree

So I am not a big fan of hanging a growth chart all year around because it never gets used.  However, I think this is a really fun idea.

I love the idea of being able to add on ornaments every year with the kids height on them.  Check out how to make is here. 

One last idea for next year

If you haven't noticed I like to reflect on how we change from year to year.  I really like this idea because without pictures of past Christmas's I would have no idea what we got and what year we got it.  Sad I know, but after having my boys my memory gone to you know what!  
I hope you all have a great Christmas Week!
