Overall, I think our first annual 25 Days: HH Style was a success! There are some of the above activities that will always be a part of our 25 Days, but as the kids get older, other activities will change. I look forward to including some service activities for us to do as a family.
We are blessed to have such great family. Both kiddos were spoiled rotten this Christmas (now Santa needs to bring us a bigger house so we have somewhere to put it all!!)! It was so exciting to see Boogie start to understand a little bit and I can't wait till next year when both kiddos will really be able to participate in the season (C-Monk pretty much slept through her whole first Christmas).
I feel really inspired by our 25 Days blog project. Before, I struggled to figure out what to write about, but now I feel like there's so much to tell!! I hope that I can stay inspired through the New Year and will be able to update more often. I'll share recipes and DIY projects we try and, of course, update you on the crazy HH world!
But, first....I must figure out how to clean up this explosion of Christmas that was our living room....
