As I mentioned the other day, I love traditions.
‘Tis the season for giving.
As a kid, I can remember my mom loading all of us into the car and heading to Target to Christmas shop for each other.
I grew up in a big family and we all loved going and picking out the perfect gift for each other.
We would each get a cart and head to the toy section and then do our best to hide our purchases from each other.
We all looked forward to it yearly.
I believe this is when my love of gift giving began.
I have been so excited to begin this tradition with the Little Presidents.
This year, I decided that Teddy and Reagan were ready!
We headed to the local toy store and each of them got to pick out a gift(s) for each other.
My friend came with us so she took Teddy to the girl section and I took Reagan to the boy section to shop.
It worked perfectly and they both had so much fun picking out gifts for each other!
I loved seeing what they both ended up picking for each other because the gifts were just so spot on.
They are both going to flip when they open them!
Reagan struggled a little bit with the concept. She kept telling me “now time for me to pick my gift?” Haha!
They are both so excited to give each other their gifts on Christmas morning! Reagan has only let Teddy’s gift slip a few times. Ha! I keep trying to change the subject anytime she mentions it so that he’ll still be surprised!
Reagan had her gift wrapped in the store so we could hide it from Teddy on the way home. She is so proud of it!
Teddy wanted to wrap his own and he did an awesome job! He picked snowman wrapping paper with pink fringe. He knows his sister well!
I’m so excited to continue this tradition each year.
I can’t wait to see their faces when they open each other’s presents on Christmas morning!
Do you have a tradition like this in your family?
