Christmas Decorating for the Kids!
It's that time of the year... All I can say is "ang bilis!", it's Christmas Season once again!
I loved Christmas as a kid..and I still do up to now! But the feeling of excitement and joy is different as compared to when you were a kid, you know? They say that Christmas is really a holiday for the children..not just because of the gifts, toys, and aguinaldo, but mainly because it's the day baby Jesus was born. I shared my reflection about Keeping Christ in Christmas last year. Our Christmas has become even more meaningful now that we have baby Hailey. Yes! I recently gave birth last November 7 to a healthy 6-pound little girl. That's another thing off my Life List.

Well this year, I want a NEW theme for Christmas :) I want to decorate for the kids! Now what do I mean by that? Well, since I now have 2 children, I want our decorations to be
|My Christmas Inspiration board :)|
|Nativity Dolls - roughly 750php for a set |
(manger not inlcuded)
4-6" sized dolls made of felt cloth.
I made the manger out of a used cardboard box
and some leftover brown cloth.

|My mom made the soft ornaments such as: the gifts,|
candies, and sacks. I bought some additional blue,
green, and gold balls for the tree too.
And because I was into the DIY decorating, I made some poster-like graphic designs and framed them.
I also did some crafting with cardboard letters and washi tapes I ordered from Bee Happy. I made out the words PEACE, JOY, and LOVE and placed them on the wall using Blu tack/Faber Castell Tack-it, except for the JOY which I pinned on some cute topiary I got from a birthday giveaway. See, it pays to recycle stuff :)
Cheers from Santa's little helper too! :)
