    Crepe paper the door for Christmas so they have to bust out when they wake up. Santa did this to make sure they stayed in their rooms. No home is complete without some fun

    FOR GIRLS "On my 16th bday, my dad gave me a half heart necklace and kept half of it. My half was attached to my bouquet on my wedding day. At the reception, he surprised us by giving his half to Chris. He literally passed down the responsibility of holding on to my heart." (Tucking this away for our girls. I love this idea... Such a cute idea.

    LOVE this idea for the first morning of the return of the Elf, swimming in a sink of mini marshmallows, and a bowl of powdered donuts for breakfast with a little treat for the kids, and of course the Elf on a Shelf book to read!

    I really like the idea of making the holidays more about spending time together than about "getting stuff." Activities include: Make hot chocolate and stir with candy canes, Watch a christmas movie and eat popcorn, Go out for a Christmas treat, Do something nice for someone, Drive around and look for Christmas lights.

    Wrap up twenty-five childrens books and put them under the tree with a special blanket next to them. Before bed each evening, your kids choose one book to open and read together...until Christmas. Love it!
