Jennifer

I am a believr in one-stop shopping especially as the crowd grow & grow as school quickly approaches. Here's my opinion if shopping for school uniforms! I feel fortunate that my schools ask for one time supply fee, so I don't have to tackle the big box stores for them.

What's your family's favorite nostalgic, silly, or practical holiday tradition? (If there's an image that goes along with your tradition, please share a link.)

Jennifer

One of our family's most treasured traditions is the pajamas dropped of to our house on Christmas Eve. As Santa is busy getting all the gifts packed up in his sled, the leaves are busy getting boys and girls (big & small) their pjs that would help the family get ready for Santa's arrival. [Note: what Christmas photo is not taken in your pjs, why not have them be new. ;)]
