I love the holidays. Mainly because, I love family time and us all being together! My hubby takes off work, we get to spend time with my parents and my sister’s family.
I am always looking for memory makers and ways to spend quality time together during this season. Here are a few things we do that I hope your family can incorporate as well.
1. We decorate as a family.
We always decorate our tree and our mantel together as a family. Everyone does their part, even the baby. The kids hang ornaments, we blare Christmas music and dance around. We grew up doing this every year as a family and I love that we have kept with that tradition. The kids are super excited as we light the tree and all work together to bring in the Christmas spirit. Sometimes we end the night with a great Christmas story.
2. Decorate cookies.
Every year I decorate cookies with my boys. They love it so much. We get sprinkles, icing, food coloring and candies and go to town. It’s such a special memory maker.
3. We go to the movies.
During this time of year there are always so many amazing movies that come out. We love to find a family friendly one that we can all attend. This year we can’t wait to all go see the movie SING ©. This movie looks hilarious and so inspirational. Also, the animation looks great which is key to keeping my two year old in his seat. This movie comes out December 21, 2016. Go see it and enter the amazing sweepstakes here!
4. We make fun treats together.
I love to cook so this is my favorite part! I love trying new recipes out with my boys. I want to raise them to have the skills to take care of themselves and also be helpful to their wives. So, every year we bake something or try out a new recipe. This year we made a snack that we can even take along with us to go see SING ©. We used Golden Crisp Cereal ® that we picked up from our local Target. This recipe is so simple and kid-friendly.
