Announcement: The Five Days of Christmas link up party!

Hello, friends!

I am excited to invite you to a Christmas link up party with me, as well as Jenny from Growing up Jacobson, Jenesha from Books, Looks, & Babies, and Stephanie from Wife Mommy Me. If you've been with me since October then you know how much I love celebrating the holidays and creating festive everyday moments to enjoy with Aria. And, these ladies are just as into the holidays as I am. So, we got together and decided to host a festive link up every Tuesday in December. There is a new topic every week, and the link up goes live at 7am (eastern), please join us on Tuesday or anytime between then and Monday evening to share your Christmas fun.
The first topic is Christmas goodies. Write a post sharing your favourite Christmas cookie recipes, or your plans for Christmas dinner, or what you make on Christmas morning to go along with a healthy dose of present opening, or all the holiday baking you would love to do but probably won't get around to because who has that kind of time! Write about anything that you can think of that ties in with holiday food, baking, dinner parties, etc. And, then head over to any of our blogs and share the festive deliciousness.

The second topic is festive clothing. Did you take Christmas card pictures this year, tell us about your outfit choices. Have you been buying up all the cute Christmas pjs you can get your hands on, take a bunch of pictures because we want to see your babies in jammies. Did you buy a new outfit for pictures with Santa, share it with us along with your tips on giving your babies to strangers without melt downs! Or, make an inspiration board of all the fantastically festive holiday clothes you wish you could buy but unfortunately don't have an unlimited bank account for such things, and your husband would probably kill you if you tried. It doesn't have to be baby related either, did momma get herself a new party dress? Write about it. And, then head over to any of our blogs and share the cuteness.

The third topic is deck the halls. How did you decorate your home this year? Anything new? Anything old? How in the world do you keep your curious babies out of the Christmas tree? Any awesome DIY decorating projects? Did you get your littles in on the decorating? Share it with us!

The fourth topic is continuing traditions. Write a post telling us your favourite Christmas memories growing up. Are you bringing traditions from your childhood into your babies' present? Or, did you start new traditions of your own? Share any and all of those Christmas traditions that mean the most to you and your family. And, then head over to any of our blogs and share the memories.

The fifth topic is looking forward to a new year. Write a post about all the things you are excited for in 2014. What are your hopes for the new year? What are your plans? Do you have any goals for yourself, your family, your babes? Share your resolutions if you make them. Tell us the ways that 2013 was a great year and your plans for making 2014 just as awesome.

We hope you will all celebrate the 5 Days of Christmas with us! Get your festive on, take pictures, write posts, grab a button, link up, make memories, have fun!
