Although I never had one growing up, I decided long ago to make it a part of our family’s holiday traditions once a little one came around. With Max turning 2 in January, this felt like the perfect year to start. Naturally I turned to Pinterest for a little inspiration and was so impressed by the creative and adorable options I found.
