Dress Up in the Christmas Spirit!
Ok, so mom and dad are decorating the tree (actually dad drags the tree in, sets it up – mostly straight, and he’s done! Then mom meticulously puts the ornaments in their exact right spot (one year I had the kids put up their own ornaments and after they went to bed I re-arranged them where they belong)! Then all the rest of the Holiday decorations are distributed through out the house…which takes…FOREVER! What’s a kid to do while mom and dad are so busy? Well, it’s time for Dress Up!
When my kids were little, whatever they dressed up as for Halloween, I tried to get an ornament to commemorate that year, one year my son was Spiderman…Spiderman ornament, my daughter as Ariel…Ariel ornament. Last year I was Black Swan, and I found a ballerina that I glued black feathers on! So as I stroll down memory lane putting up each ornament, the kids go to a toybox full of old costumes and play dress up for me!
