Christmas with a One Year Old - Ethan's Second Christmas

As it's getting closer to Christmas and I'm starting to plan for Ethan's third Christmas (I can't even believe it, I don't know where the time has gone) I'm looking back to Ethan's previous Christmas'.  I wasn't really blogging for Ethan's first Christmas, and being a parent was still so new (he was only 3 months old) that we just had a very simple and lovely Christmas at home.  

Last year, however, for Ethan's second Christmas, we went all out!  (And just wait for this year, baby!) So I'm looking back and remembering all of the things we did, to find inspiration for this year, and maybe to inspire others to go all out for Christmas with a one year old :)


Christmas Traditions
























Christmas Decorating


























Christmas Crafts and Activities








































































































































































Christmas Toys
























Christmas Days Out



























Looking back, I'm actually thinking that we did a lot more than that, things that never got written about.  There were plenty of Christmas fairs, Christmas lights and Christmas parties.  And definitely a lot more special family moment.  Hopefully I'll manage to find time to write about them all this year.

It's just over a month until Christmas, happy planning everyone!  (Now...where have I left my lists???)
