The Little Style File is happy to partner with Gymboree on this post.

When is the BEST time to be a kid?  Definitely the holidays.  It's really our favorite time to be parents, too.  You see, when you have a baby you get to experience everything in a different way.  Watching your kid watch the world is magical.  The magic is times a million during the holidays.

best time to be a kid

The first snowfall, meeting Santa, decorating the Christmas tree, caroling, drinking hot cocoa - the holidays are just the best.  Spending time with family and friends that have become family make the moments all the more special.

Gymboree kids

There are a lot of laughs with this group who never takes themselves too seriously.

The little kids look up to the big kids and they all take care of each other, whether Santa is watching or not.  We grown ups think we have all of the answers and know what the best part of being a kid during the holidays is but when we asked the kids, we were surprised and delighted with their answers.

Madeline, age 8 says, "Being a kid is the best on Christmas because when I wake up I run down the stairs to see if Santa came.  Then we go to Nonna and Poppa's house and we make a big meal and do lots of fun stuff together."

This year the kids wanted to start a new tradition - Christmas Caroling!  Ellie is in the middle school choir and showed the kids how to read music and follow along.

After a little practice they sounded great.


These kiddos will be ready to hit the neighborhood in December.  They can't wait to spread their holiday cheer!

Making memories together is so fun and we always like to capture them with our cameras and phones to save and share the moments.  We love Gymboree because their comfortable clothing always coordinates so well for siblings and even friends!  The colors are bright and vibrant and can really show off their individual personalities.

Gymboree holiday outfits

Head to toe looks are so easy to pull together from shopping Gymboree's collections.  Over the years we've had matching holiday pajamas from Gymboree, dressy Christmas dresses and winter themed outfits.  From baby to tween, Gymboree makes dressing for the holidays super fun!

The best way to end any winter day is with hot cocoa.  Even better if it's in a holiday mug!
