I love looking back on pictures that make me smile… my boys and me in one shot, all happy — The Dad at my house on Christmas Eve — Getting a pic of all three of my kids and me, just to find out the little one was showing his chewed up food — And our first year of getting our Christmas tree without help from anyone else — I love that when I look back at so many pictures I have taken that each time we all seem so happy. The kids sort of went through a funk for […]
The kids were here on Christmas Eve for our annual pizza and presents with my Dad and Step Mom. You wouldn’t believe how freaking happy I was to get new hand towels, my six year old didn’t get why I was so happy over new hand towels, it’s an adult thing I suppose. I also got this really cool candle that changes colors and stuff, I will be sharing it online soon I am sure. Maybe on my YouTube Channel, who knows. Christmas Eve was fun, all three kids returned by 5pm from their Dads and I invited my […]

Our family is huge on reading books so of course one of my holiday gift ideas for you all would be a great book, or two … or three! Today I am sharing three titles our family reviewed together during bedtime story time and have read nearly every night now for about a month. The First Christmas – A Changing Picture Book The classic Christmas nativity story is stunningly illustrated by evocative pastel artwork depicting angels, shepherds, and wise men arriving in Bethlehem to share the magic of the birth of Jesus. Lift the gatefold flaps to change the pictures […]
“Someone once told me that the spirit of Christmas is embodied in the hearts of children, untouched as of yet by the doubts, fears and disappointments of the adult world.” –Santa Claus in “The Search for Santa Paws” Whether you’re nine or ninety-nine, Santa Claus likely still holds a special place in your heart. Maybe you remember sitting on his knee at your local mall as a child or writing—and re-writing—him a letter asking for a dollhouse or red wagon. Many of us remember staying up past midnight in hopes of catching a glimpse of him as he came down […]
We did our normal Christmas Eve at my Dad’s this year, basically we go over and visit while eating lots of good munchies; grapes, kielbasa, cheese, crackers and more! Then if there are any presents to open we open them and give ours to my Dad, step-mom and step sister. This year was fun because the boys are more interactive and so AJ kept trying to punch Grampa and play around while Baby K was very bothered that one of Grampa’s cabinet doors doesn’t stay shut all the way. Baby K ventured out into the kitchen to steal his own […]
