Disney is the perfect example. We pushed and trudged and planned and exclaimed, "look at that!" The kids loved it, but at a certain point, they wanted something simplier. Nathan asked to leave the Magic Kingdom so he could go swimming in the pool.
We take our children on the Polar Express every year. I look forward to buying them new pjs and meeting all of our friends. My kids have a great night. Funny thing is that it is not the Polar Express train or Santa or the singing that gets Nathan most excited. It is the simple, old-fahioned train set that is set up in the waiting area. I can't drag him away from that.
It is the whole "buy them new toys, but they love the box" syndrome. I am going to try to be better about reading my kids. I am going to try to meet their simple needs.
I caught these photos on my iPhone...not the best, but they tell the story! I used the Dec. kit from My Scrapbook Nook to complete this layout! It features Crate Paper's Peppermint. Fun collection perfect for December!
On to simplier times...
