We also got in the spirit despite our hesitation of putting the tree up for the boys. This little Elf #1 enjoyed the Christmas lights and the sparkly ornaments.
My Elf #2 helped too! Took them one week of pulling some ornaments out. They haven't touched it since.
I also sewed these cute reindeer felt ornaments. These are so easy to make and kid friendly too! I can't wait to make some more for next year. I just love the handmade ornaments. Takes a lot of time but love the quality.
I did majority of my shopping online. This box came from the Disney Store and the boys loved it. It was their first pretend house. I love the text on the box flap "big dreams".
These guys were so good at helping me run a few errands when we can to complete our Christmas list. They also played well at home on cold and windy days. I can't ask for anything more.
