New Hampshire Motor Speedway Gift of Lights #giftoflights #NH

The family packed up the van and headed out to enjoy The Gift of Lights at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway a few weekends ago. I was so happy when a friend posted pictures from when she visited in past years The Gift of Lights in Texas. Never had I heard of The Gift of Lights being in New Hampshire, so once I saw that it was, we knew we had to take our children there. We all love Christmas Lights so much and this Gift of Lights event is happening through January 5, 2014. There’s still time to go […]

Parents You Should Check This Out! The Christmas Registry #parents #christmas

I was introduced to a new website called The Christmas Registry and wanted to share a bit about it with you because it is that time of year; the time in which children are making those wish lists and their eyes are bright ready for that big red suit man to come down the chimney leaving surprise gifts for Christmas morning. Let’s get started, of course you can watch the video tutorial on TheChristmasRegistry.com but I want to share my experiences and details with you personally. A grown up must created a username and password for children to log in […]

Thought About it, Then Thought Twice

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 […]

From My House to Yours, Merry Christmas Friends

It was silent all through the house, not a creature was stirring well except a mouse. As the mouse chomped around or the red squirrel outside, whatever it was, Santa was preparing all of the presents for the kids… As Santa made it downstairs to place the presents under the tree, he also stuffed three stockings; 1 … 2 … 3. But wait, oh now what have we here? The reindeer ate all of the pug’s sweet treats. The children were sad to find out the reindeer ate all of Jenny the pug’s treats but she is spoiled daily so […]

I am a sucker for Christmas movies so when I was pitched to review a possible copy of the new Santa Paws Combo Pack – Disney Santa Paws 2 The Santa Pups, well how could I resist?

The Magic of Santa Claus

I had a discussion with my father one day about how my oldest believes in Santa, she is 10. I think that it’s important to keep the magic alive. Santa Claus is such a wonderful magical person to believe in, why kill the magic for your child before they are ready to have that magic killed? Santa is alive and well in my home and the kids look forward to seeing him at the Spirit of Christmas in Cornish, NH every year. The youngest recently told me that I better be good because Santa is watching me. That is the […]

Christmas Presents That Are Still a Hit

Christmas Eve the parents are hurrying to wrap presents and I know I wasn’t alone in that as I watched many parents on Facebook talk about how late they were going to be up wrapping presents just to have their kids rip through the paper the next morning quicker than my 3 year old can run from one side of the house to the other. Christmas is a wonderful time to be reminded of family and being grateful for the things we have, but when you are a child you long to see what Santa Claus is bringing you and […]

Chrismas With the Munchkins Was Wonderful

Another Christmas has come and gone.  It was Christmas morning and I heard a little girls voice “Mama it’s almost 7am. It’s Christmas so it’s okay to wake up early”. I turned to her, smiled and tried to wake up, me being a non-morning person made it hard to function too quickly, but when she asked if she should wake up her brothers I quickly replied “no please wait til Mama gets some coffee made first.” I then asked if Santa came and she hadn’t gone downstairs to check. Ki ran downstairs to check and came back to my bedside […]

A Christmas Cookie Tradition with a Twist

In these times of prepared foods and mini-marts, it’s understandable that many folks forego baking and decorating Christmas cookies and settle for store-bought instead. It’s the patient home cook who bakes dozens of cookies, one sheet at a time, in a traditional radiant heat oven. And really, how many Santas, stars and trees can you slather with icing and spot with sprinkles before your eyes glaze over? Rather than let the cookie cutters gather dust in the pantry this holiday season, try holding a Christmas cookie decorating contest. By injecting a little friendly competition into your cookie decorating process, you […]
