Christmas Giveaways from Things Moms Like

Things Moms Like

Things Moms Like has a couple of really nice giveaways going on that would make fantastic Christmas gifts for the kids. So of course I am entering!

She's giving away two books from Scholastic. The titles are The Nutcracker and the Mouse King and The Christmas Magic.  Both books look beautiful.  Every year I try to purchase a couple new Christmas books to go into our holiday library for the kids.  These books would be beautiful additions.

She's also giving away a Dora the Explorer Christmas CD and a Dora’s Christmas Carol Adventure DVD.  My little E is just starting to like Dora.  We have no Dora DVDs so this would be fantastic. Truth be told I would rather my kids watch DVDs of shows or movies they like rather than TV.  We miss all the commercials and "I want's" that way. :)  I think I might have a little girl here that still would enjoy this too, although she wouldn't admit that in public.

P.S. Both giveaways end today so if you want to enter hurry! :)

25 Days of Christmas - Day 3

>> Thursday, December 3, 2009

For day 3 I had written down red & green for supper.  The kids thought we were going to have lettuce and tomatoes for supper, so they were pleasantly surprised when they saw we were having more than just that. Here are some pictures from our day three...

 Waiting ever so patiently for supper...well 2 are anyhow.

Yum! This is good :)

25 Days of Christmas - Day 2

>> Wednesday, December 2, 2009

Today was day two and Bub opened the Make Holiday Rice Krispie Squares envelope. The big kids were pretty excited about this one because I basically let them do most of the work.  I just told them what to do next.  I did take over pouring the stuff into the prepared pan because I was nervous about someone getting burned but that's all I did.  They have already asked if we can make these again because there is still lots of Rice Krispies left in the box. :)  Here are some pictures of the cooking fun!

25 Days of Christmas - Day 1

>> Tuesday, December 1, 2009

I finally finished our envelopes, put the activities in them and got it hung up on the wall just in time to start opening them.  Tonight Bean opened the first envelope. For day one the kids got to write their Christmas wish lists to Santa.  The letters are sealed, addressed and ready to be posted.  Here are some pictures of the kids writing their letters.
