Make A Wish

I bought these little mini wish ornaments from Red Envelope two  years ago and they have become one of my favorite traditions.

I absolutely love my Christmas ornaments.  My mom did this sweet tradition with me growing up so decorating my tree each year always brings back so many memories.

The wish set comes with 5 mini silver ornaments that say “Wishes” on the outside and “Do Come True” on the inside and little slips of paper to write your wishes on.

Each year when decorating our tree, each family member is going to write their wish for the upcoming year and hang it on the tree.  The 5th one is for a “family wish.”

I laughed out loud when I opened Emma’s wish ornament this year.   Her (then) 3 1/2 year old wish from last year was for…


…and lucky for her, wishes really DO come true!

We LOVE Team OC. In fact, my 4 1/2 year old is there today for Winter Camp and having the time of her life! I have been wanting to take the Baby Bees class with Morgan (12 – 20 month olds) for some time now. I took it when Emma was a toddler and we loved it.

So when I heard about today’s Plum District deal, it sealed the deal for me!

For $30, you can get one month of group classes at Team OC, which are normally $89!

Click HERE to see all the details and read the fine print. Best part is that this deal is for EXISTING Team OC families and NEW ones and you can buy 2 vouchers for 2 different kids in your family (1 voucher per kid only) + a gift one as well.
