On Friday, we got to venture out to see the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train as it came through Iowa. What a gorgeous train all lit up for the holidays! We got to see it at dusk, so it was just starting to really shine!
The boys absolutely loved the train and couldn’t stop smiling!
This week I’ve finally gotten back into the swing of posting our activities since Louis was born. I ventured out of my comfort zone a little bit too with a parenting post! [Eek!]
Here’s what we’ve been up to:
- I shared an old, old activity, back when Henry was 2… a learning activity to do during the holidays with wrapping paper! Matching patterns!
- We also created some Christmas trees to decorate the windows with. You can stick them right to the windows!
- It’s Playtime is in full holiday mode now and I featured a bunch of Christmas tree activities and crafts.
- And lastly… the step out of my writing comfort zone… a parenting post on what I wish I would have been told by all the experienced moms… If you could go back to when you had your first baby, what would you tell yourself?
