My Love Language

Those orange & yellow stickers make my heart go pitter-patter.

It takes very little to make me happy¬† ūüėČ

A Savior is Born

For unto us a Child is born,
      Unto us a Son is given;
      And the government will be upon His shoulder.
      And His name will be called
      Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
      Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Merry Christmas!

Christmastime is Here

What We’ve Been Doing Instead of Blogging:

Playing with Nativity Sets

Setting Up a Snowy Village

Having Fun at Christmas in the Park

Creating Gifts for the Birdies (and the Great-Grandmother)

Making Goodies for Daddy’s Customers

{White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn}

{Candy Cane Pretzels}


And One for the Mailman

Cleaning Up the Aftermath **sigh**

Building Snowmen {the best we can do in Texas}

I am still working on being a YES Mom, so I have concentrated my time this CHRISTmas season on making memories with my kiddos.

Too many times in the past I would post wonderful ideas for you to browse, and never get around to actually doing them with my own bunch.

So here it is … no links, no tutorials, no edited photos … just pics of family fun.

Maybe by next Christmas I will have it together enough to post AND enjoy my family? Don’t hold your breath ūüėČ

Stocking Stuffer Traditions

When my kiddos were little bitty, I decided to tuck toothbrushes into their stockings. They needed new ones…it was a cheap & cute filler…and thus a tradition was born.

Last year was a little tricky. My older girls were 13 & 12, so cartoon characters weren’t going to work any more.

I went on the hunt for something cute and discovered Oral-B Pro-Health For Me. There is a whole line of Pro-Health For Me products.

They have fun designs without being “baby-ish”.

Oral-B has an adorable line of brushes for little ones too.

Toss in a package of floss picks while you’re at it.

Tell Me: What do you put in your kid’s stocking year after year?

I was given free Oral-B products to share with friends via Mommy Parties. No compensation was given for this post, and all opinions are my own.
