Deciding what you’re going to do with your family for the holidays is so difficult when there are so many options out there.
Go see Christmas lights.
Go to parades.
Go to a Christmas shop.
Go to Gatlinburg.
Visit The Festival of Lights at the Cincinnati Zoo.
Family Holiday Pictures
Photos with Santa
So many options, so little time and money.
The reality is, we cannot do all of the things that we would like to do for our children for the holidays. We have other obligations we still need to attend to while trying to make the holidays as special as possible.
So, what can you do to make this time of year amazing and not break the bank?
Take your holiday pictures yourself.
Choose a Christmas show you can drive through that charges per vehicle.
Dress Daddy or grandpa as Santa and take your Santa photos that way.
Purchase an elf on the shelf and create a fun morning each day of December.
Create a holiday movie night each Saturday before Christmas.
Make homemade Christmas pajamas.
Have a family ornament creating event.
Making this bright time of year special for the whole family doesn’t have to cost a dime. You can spend your time creating magical memories with the things you already have.
We are all hoping to leave our families with amazing memories that they’ll talk about for years to come. Something as simple as spending time together and creating traditions that will stand the test of time is so much more than anything you could purchase.
Remember that this is the time of year for love and togetherness.
As long as you have that… Your holiday will be magical.
🧡Shine Bright, Kayla
