The Friday Five: 5 of my favorite Simple Kids holiday posts


It is Friday, friends.  Wow!  Not only that, but here we are turning the page to November and I really, truly (though I know everyone says it every single month) do not know where all of the time is going.

In a few months I’ll be celebrating four years as the editor of Simple Kids.  That completely blows my mind!  I feel so new at this, so green, and yet, here is this little blog that I’ve been writing for longer than one of my children has been alive.  Wow.

For today’s Friday Five I wanted to simply share five of my favorite Simple Kids holiday related posts.  These are near and dear to my heart, or just fun, or special to me because of the time in my life when I wrote them.

I hope you’ll enjoy them, too.
