This year I decided I didn't want to buy the usual Christmas "junk" for presents and decorations. It's our first year having a real tree as a family! I'm loving Christmas time with a baby. Kyle insists that every ornament on our tree have some meaning or special occasion attached to it. He prefers these to the typical glitter orbs and ribbons. I agree...I like this ideas and want to make it a family tradition. So we have about 10 ornaments now. They are things Sophia likes...elephants and lions. Things Kyle likes...pigs, cows, farm animals, and little hand tools. And things I like...gardening boots, chickens. I just need to find some cooking utensil ornaments now!
For gifts, I am either making them all or buying from local Etsy friends. I wanted to showcase a few of my favorite Etsy shops that are all local to our Spokane & Coeur d'Alene area.
