As we’ve gotten a little further into December I’ve started realizing just how many fun traditions we do with our kids. I realize people all over the world celebrate this season a little differently, and some don’t celebrate it all, but I thought it would be fun to share a few things we do as a family that make this season so special to us! As most kids do, ours look forward to December all year long. It must have something to do with the lights, the magic, the yummy treats and the extra sweet spirit of love they feel at home, at school and from all our neighbors.

I wanna have time to go ice skating, see the Lights at Temple Square and watch Christmas movies with my kids without seeing that never ending to-do list in the back of my head!

I love seeing all the porches decorated with hay and corn and the sweet smell of pumpkin spice. Usually by this time the kids and I have organized the crafts we want to make, we’ve picked out our Halloween costumes and have baked alllll the pumpkin bars and yummy pumpkin muffins a person can eat. This year though, October has totally crept up on me and we’re now just starting to get into the spirit. I wanted to share this puppy dog makeup tutorial inspired by the infamous snapchat filter. I thought it was perfect because it’s so dang easy and something you can do on a whim – you shouldn’t need to make any special trips to the store for this one. What you need: Google puppy dog snapchat filter PNG and print off the ears and nose. I placed the image into
