Two years ago, I started a new tradition. The Locurto Family Christmas Party.
To start the party, we read my all time favorite Christmas book for little kids called What God Wants for Christmas. It’s an interactive book where the kids have to open gifts during the story to create the nativity scene. My daughter carries her “Baby Jesus” all over the house now. Don’t touch her Baby Jesus… or you’ll get the 2 year old high pitched, ear drum bursting scream!!!
Next, each kid gets to open a gift. It’s always a Hallmark Keepsake Ornament.
This year since my daughter is CRAZY about Minnie Mouse, guess what she got?
My kindergartener is all about Star Wars! He was SO excited for me to take his picture next to his ornament. ha!
You can see their ornaments from last year in this picture too. Princess and soccer. It will be fun to look back at photos of them at different ages and be reminded of what they were interested in that year.
And of course, it wouldn’t be a party without treats. Mmmm pudding!
Who needs a spoon?
The rest of the night, my daughter sang the theme song from Mickey Mouse Club House. But as soon as I got the camera out, she switched up the tune! Here’s a video for your viewing pleasure… note the pudding mouth:-)
This post is a part of a few blog parties. Go join in on the fun!
