T.G.I.F Pic Of The Week – Full Speed Ahead To CHRISTMAS!

Ok, I know what you’re thinking – it’s not even Thanksgiving yet and this chick is writing about Christmas? Well – yes. Yes I am. Not only am I a notorious over-planner (meaning I love lists and like to plan wayyyy way ahead), but I am also a mom – which means not only do I have to bake, send cards, wrap gifts, decorate – but I also have to ensure that I am creating that Christmas magic for my son, too!

Which honestly I am SO THRILLED to do – this year he is 3 and finally old enough to start to understand Christmas, and how Santa operates – that part he is SUPER aware of – “Sant bring me that toy?” is one of his new phrases. Because of that, and also because of the fact that he is a lot more aware this year, we are also going to try and include him in on our annual charity work – donating to those in need – warm winter clothes, food, toys – we will bring him along so he can help pick it all out. We are trying to get him to understand that not everyone can afford new toys every Christmas – and I am hoping this is a message that sticks with him for years to come!

Another thing he is super into (aside from what Santa may bring him of course) right now is crafts – he LOVES little projects – I have found that pre-packaged ones from craft stores that include stuff like self adhesive parts are a HUGE hit with him – and so since he ALSO loves Disney, I thought why not try and find some Disney Craft projects for him to try?

My son is BIG into Monsters Inc right now – so this Ornament would be right up his alley!

Considering that he is always grabbing the black drink coasters and pretending they are his “Mickey Ears” – I think this would be a hit, too

Alien Elves – so cute!

Not sure what he would enjoy more- creating this adorable Candy Box, or eating the candy we put in it (ok – I am sure – the box would be a hit but the candy wins every time ha)

Hopefully these help get you and your little ones into the Christmas spirit – TGIF – and happy crafting!

Missing The Happiest Place On Earth? Disney-Fy Your Home For That Magical Fix!

I don’t know about you, but I tend to go through a MAJOR Disney withdrawal post-trip – and it makes me want to plan another trip and go back ASAP! As we know though – that isn’t always possible – and sometimes I have to figure out other ways to beat those Disney Blues. Here’s what I like to do:

SHOP! – I like to check out the Disney Store online and pick out things to help decorate my home and wardrobe so that I can keep that Disney magic alive and be reminded of just how much I love it. They even have a section of Disney Parks Merchandise – it’s almost as good as the real thing (well, sort of anyway…)

Recipes – I have several Disney Cookbooks with recipes from the Parks and Resorts, and it’s a lot of fun to flip through and look at the pictures and recipes and recreate some Disney dishes at home. Don’t have any Disney cookbooks? Fear not – as I regularly post on Chip and Co

Crafts – I love doing crafts, especially for holidays and loved ones – so it makes sense that I also love DISNEY crafts – check out a great selection here – this would be a great thing to do with your kids too, to help get them excited for a WDW trip (or to cheer them up after a trip)

Movies – A surefire way to beat the Disney blues is to pop in a Disney Movie – I even still have a bunch on VHS (and yes I even have a working VCR hooked up to my TV). My faves? Cinderella, and anything Muppets!

Post vacation depression happens to everyone – but these tips can really help lessen the load and put a smile on your face!
