Creating Christmas Memories in Our New Home with Gymboree

This past month has been a whirlwind for us – We have successfully moved into our new home and found a great tenant to rent our other house for a year. Between packing and unpacking, we haven’t had much time to be festive. Half of our Christmas decorations are still packed away somewhere in boxes and we have had zero time to do any clothes shopping. That’s why when I received an enormous box of beautiful Gymboree holiday clothes for our two kids, I was in absolute heaven!

Finally, with a weekend off of work thanks to a couple snow days and some adorable sets of clothes for our kids to model, we could celebrate our family and home by taking some photos right before meeting up with family for a Santa brunch! Talk about good timing!xmas43

With both of us back to working full-time and me working as a shift-working nurse, we rarely have time off together. Life has been so chaotic for us this past year, and we haven’t taken the time to get family photos since before Sam was born more than two years ago!

With their coordinating styles, you can easily mix and match items so you can make multiple outfits with ease. Gymboree is my favourite place to shop for my kid’s clothes because their clothing is of the highest kamagra uk quality, they wash up really well and stand the test of time.

For example, my daughter was gifted an adorable kitten set from Gymboree last year from a dear friend of mine, and we chose the outfit just last month to wear for her school pictures. She literally has worn that outfit every week for over a year, and it still looks brand new!

Even their pajamas (or Gymmies, as you may know them as) are of the highest quality and stand up to months of use! Of course Gymmies come in coordinating styles and in adorable patterns! Gymboree has even began to offer matching adult-sized Gymmies. A-mazing.

Christmas and New Year’s may be fast approaching, but there is still time for you to pick up some beautiful holiday outfits for your little ones too from Gymboree. If you live in the US, you can order until December 19th at 12 PM EST to get your order before Christmas. If you live in Canada like me, it’s best to go in-store where there is always a good sale to be had. Gymboree is 50% off the entire store right now, and clearance items are up to 80% off!xmas25xmas29xmas28

P.S. A big shout out to my father-in-law for lending us his camera for the weekend so we could take these family photos, and kudos to all the photographers out there! Taking photos of busy children is much harder than it looks! Xx
