Last Christmas as a family of Three

Last Christmas as a family of Three

Hi friends!

Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!  We sure did!
I have to admit it’s a bit strange to think that this was our last Christmas as a family of three.  I think that’s why this little guy got a little more spoiled than usual.

Stocking Stuffer Ideas

It’s crunch time people!  7 days until Christmas!  Are you ready?  I finished up most of my Christmas shopping this week just have a few stocking stuffers left to get.  Speaking of stocking stuffers, what are some of your favorites to receive?  When we turned 18 our grandparents started putting scratchers in our stockings after we used to try to steal our parents.  We would all sit and scratch away hoping one of us would come out the big winner!

If you’re like me and saved your stocking stuffers until last…  Here’s a few ideas to fill stocking for both guys and girls!

Festive Family Time

Festive Family Time

I just love this time of year.  The lights, the sounds, the smells, and mostly the joy all around it’s just such a fun, magical time of year.  Especially with a 4 year old.  There’s nothing better than seeing their face light up when they hear a christmas song or see a house decked out in Christmas lights.  It truly brings a whole new joy to Christmas 🙂

Fun Gift Idea that will keep you Kids Entertained!

Fun Gift Idea that will keep you Kids Entertained!

If you have kids you probably know how tiresome it can be trying to keep them entertained.  Especially if it’s cold, rainy, or maybe snowing outdoors so you’re stuck indoors…   On days like that we go tend to go through MANY different activities.  Reading, building legos, playing with race cars, play dough, painting, coloring, crafting, baking, on and on and on.  It can be a very tiresome day for mammas!

The Love Nugget has four sets of Grandparents that love him very much.

He adores each of them and gets so excited when he’s going to see them.  Unfortunately, we don’t live all that close.  Which means we aren’t able to get together as much as we’d all like.  Especially the grandparents.  They love seeing their grandson and hearing about how much he’s growing.  Especially milestones.   Even as he gets older they light up when he tells them about how he learned to ride his big boy bike, or that he has a new play structure and he climbs all the way to the top.  So since they aren’t able to see him and his success’ in person that much, we try to keep them up to date through photos.   [Read more…]

The Hubby and I decided to just stay home for Valentine’s Day.  Actually, my birthday is today and my mom is coming down tomorrow so we are sort of celebrating it tonight with a nice, romantic dinner at home.  One that I had a blast picking out yesterday at my favorite grocery store, Whole Foods!

Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Sun Butter Cups and other Paleo Christmas Treats!

Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Sun Butter Cups and other Paleo Christmas Treats!

When I was little, I wanted to give gifts to family members at Christmas time.  We didn’t have a ton of money growing up so instead fo my parents handing me money to buy gifts my mom taught me the joy of gifting baked goods!

xmas

We would spend days before Christmas baking then package them all into boxes, tins or on plates and gift them.  Since then I can’t remember a year that I haven’t been in the kitchen the days leading up to Christmas pouring, mixing, measuring and baking!  I love it!

Since I’ve changed my eating habits over the past few years, my baking has changed as well.  I still enjoy sharing yummy goodies with others I just try to keep them Paleo friendly so I can taste them too 🙂  Plus, it’s a bit healthier to share grain-free, sugar-free and often times dairy-free treats!

In case you’re looking for some healthier treat options for others or just for yourself, I’ve put together a list of recipes I’m planning to make.
