January means organization, right, so it’s only fitting that my first post of the year be about wrangling my girls’ dress ups! As you can imagine… with five children, we’ve accumulated a TON of dress ups and they were bursting at the seams. I had one old dress up dresser and then we’ve overflowed into two large hampers… And then, we added princess shoes and purses and makeup, etc. for Christmas. It was time.
Make no mistake… New Year’s Eve in the Smith house will be 8:00 for anyone under the age of 9. But… from 6 until 8, I have a few fun games and snacks and decorations to help the kids toast the arrival of 2018. I had to prep these for a news segment so figured I’d share if anyone’s looking for last minute party ideas!
I am chuckling under my breath as I type this because it is honestly SUCH an easy, fun project for us last night! Unless you’ve been living in a pop-culture void, you know that ugly Christmas sweaters are ALL the rage. Well… Eleanor has an ugly sweater day at school and I decided it might be fun for us to make our own!
