Making Christmas Memories

32 days and counting until Santa has once again been and gone and it begins all over again with the New Year in the offing!

What fun to see Christmas through your children's eyes!

Children become very excited and bedlam sometimes reigns for several weeks until that ungodly hour before dawn when tiny footsteps begin tiptoeing their way to where they hope to find the tree loaded with gaily wrapped packages with their names on them!

Some tiny tots become anxious if their home doesn't have a fireplace chimney for Ole Kris Kringle to make his entry from, so, if you don't have a fireplace, why not get a Magic Key for Santa, the children will be so relieved and less anxious about how will be able to get into the tree area to leave their special requests they've made to Father Christmas!
Hurry on over to theStickerHut and it is there you will find the cutest little bag that holds a Magic Key with just the right instructions for Santa relieving children from stressful thoughts of Santa not being able to have access to their family Christmas tree. 

Everyone knows Santa must be left a special treat of Milk and Cookies before he leaves your home, what better than of course milk and cookies and lets not forget Rudolph and his friends who work hard in pulling Santa's gift laden sleigh!    At Etsy there are hundreds of Independent shop owners with special dishes made just for Santa and of course every one of Santa's beloved Reindeer need to be given a carrot or two, and I have found a terrific set to accommodate all of the cookies and carrots to fulfill that necessity from the VinylyComplete shop
Isn't this too perfect?

 And from the OhSoCraftyy shop I found another one and I am positive if you browse through the shops your going to find the exact perfect plate and drink set for Santa that till suit your children.  Most of these sets can be customized with your child or children's names on them, which would be thrilling and a super way to get them into bed and settled for the night after they've set out treats for Santa and his hardworking reindeer!

Kids love signs!  Why not get yourselves an Marquee LED lit sign that says in giant letters "SANTA"???  Click into the JennNRome Shop and you'll find such wonderful LED signage.  The kids will be thrilled with it!
I fell for this one right off and it would certainly light Santa's way to the Christmas Tree area! 

With all that Santa has to do before Christmas eve, it would be fun for the children to know Santa won't lose his way!  Children everywhere love Santa and the advent of Christmas is very exciting for them, knowing they can direct Santa straight to their house.   I love the face of a child lit with excitement at the very thought of Santa being in their home and leaving presents!

Then there is a Journal children can be taught to keep from one Christmas to the next, with photographs of their gifts, letters to Santa, secret Christmas wishes or a quote someone said on that special day that they may wish to remember forever!  A wonderful book filled with past Christmas memories of themselves and the possibility of it becoming a special keepsake to pass along to their children!
I found this cute journal over at the BabyBlackDog shop, cute isn't it?

Then from the imagINephotowords shop I discovered this great kit for children to make their very own and special thank you cards to send after Christmas to Grandma and Grandpa, or Aunts and Uncles, etc., what fun this would be for them, thrilling to send and special to receive!

Making and having a memorable Christmas is what all the fuss is about and some of these wonderful items can make a memory last long after Christmas 2014 has come and gone!

Etsy shop owners are more than willing to assist you in finding exactly what it is your looking for, so no need for the heavy winter gear, cleaning off the car, finding a parking spot in the overcrowded mall parking lot and dealing with elbow to elbow shoppers, nope, all you have to do is choose your favorite brew and let your mouse lead you through the Etsy shops....
