7 Days of Children’s Christmas Stories {Making Holiday Memories}

7-days-of-childrens-christmas-stories

Right now it’s all about making memories and starting traditions.  Here is something fun we will be doing with our girls that I thought I’d share.

For the past 2 years I’ve been saying I was going to do this and I finally found the time to do it!  We have a lot of Children’s Christmas books and the girls love reading them every year.  But with all the books we have in the house, sometimes it’s hard to locate them and then there is finding the time to read them.

7 Days of Children’s Christmas Stories

So this year, I wrapped up 7 of their Christmas stories and each night till Christmas Eve, they can pick one and we will read it as a family.  I haven’t told them yet but when they come home from school today they will find the books wrapped and under the tree.  I bought a new one this year that is about Santa Claus coming to Rhode Island and that one I marked for Christmas Eve.

2014-12-18 12.30.12 This was so easy to do and such a great way to spend family time during the holidays.  This holiday season is extra special to us so we are trying to make memories any way we can.  This is one of them!

I am adding this to our holiday traditions.  Next year I will plan better and do 25 days of Children’s Christmas Stories !!!

2014-12-17 10.48.37

I used my Office Depot Holiday Workshop tools to wrap all my books and label them.   Office Depot has everything you need to get all your holiday gifts wrapped from scissors to tape, ribbon, tags, labels, washi tape, pens, markers and more!  They even sell Hot Cocoa to keep you warm while you wrap.

2014-12-18 11.00.00

Their tape is invisible (has to be!) and each one has a lot of tape on it.  I got all my holiday gifts wrapped using just one!!!   Head there this week to grab all #YourHolidayWorkshop needs!

What kind of traditions do you have for the holidays?

HOLIDAY Stocking Stuffers: Affordable Beauty Items

Lypsyl_Card_Redesign_April4_A

This post is Sponsored by Lypsyl and Yardley but my opinions are 100% my own!

Seriously one of my favorite things on Christmas morning for me, is looking through my stocking.  My husband and I fill each others stockings and I have a lot of fun finding things for him.  I believe he does too because he really does put thought into what goes into mine.  Which is why I love it so much.

This holiday season, indulge in your senses while ensuring you and your loved ones have smooth, silky skin and moisturized lips well into the New Year by filling their stocking with things like Lypsyl and Yardley!

Shopping for friends, family or co-workers will never be easier! Both Lypsyl and Yardley are great for those on a budget as stocking stuffers and secret Santa gifts.  You could fill a stocking or create a basket of luxurious beauty buys while staying on a budget with Lypsyl Lip Balm and Yardley London’s Limited Edition Indulgent Bath Bar Treats!

Holiday Wrapping Essentials at BJ’s Wholesale Club

This post is Sponsored by BJ’s Wholesale Club but my opinions are 100% my own!

Once again, I picked up all my Holiday Wrapping Essentials at BJ’s Wholesale Club and my gifts will look festive, fun and pretty!

Now that all your shopping is done, it’s time to wrap your presents.  I love wrapping presents and I take pride in making them look good.  The past few years, I’ve shopped at BJ’s for my wrapping paper, ribbon, tags and bows and I’ve received so many compliments on how nice the presents look.  Now that the girls are older, I have the little extra time (extra time, what’s that!) I need to spend on making my gifts pretty.

Holiday Wrapping Essentials at BJ’s Wholesale Club

So again this year, I headed to BJ’s Wholesale Club to get my wrapping paper.  They always have a great selection and I wasn’t disappointed this year.

2014-12-09 11.23.27

You can buy an entire Holiday Wrap Ensemble with everything you need in one package for $12.99.  That is such a great deal because there are 5 rolls of wrapping paper inside the package.

2014-12-09 11.23.09

My favorite and the one I choose is the HUGE Roll of reversible gift wrap.   When I say this roll is big, I am serious.  While I was wrapping presents this week, my friend stopped by and was like “WOW that’s a big roll of wrapping papper”.  When I told her I only paid $9.99 for it, and she felt the quality of the paper she told e she’d be shopping there for her wrapping needs!

2014-12-09 11.24.09

Another thing I look forward to getting at BJ’s Wholesale club are their beautiful handmade gift tags.  These really dress up the gifts and everyone loves them.  They are pretty enough to hang on the tree too!  The package contains 60 tags so that’s more than enough for my gifts.  I share the them with mom!

2014-12-09 11.24.18

Some years I use bows and some years I use ribbon.  This year I choose ribbon again and found one that would match both sides of my reversible wrapping paper.  They have wire in them so they are fun and easy to use.  It seriously is the BEST ribbon ever.

2014-12-09 11.46.16

Now that I had my supplies I was on my way to wrapping.  The Ribbon, Tags and Wrapping paper cost me less than $30 and that’s all I’ll need for all our gifts.  And like I mentioned above, I’ll share the leftovers because I know I’ll have some.

2014-12-17 14.16.13

I told you I love the tags, right?  Well check out the 3 dimensional tags – they are all like this.   Plus the card stock they are printed on good quality heavy duty so you can easily use them as ornaments too.  Seriously everyone gushes over these tags.  They are totally worth it!!

2014-12-17 14.16.25

This one above is my favorite with the buttons, string bows and glitter!  They are seriously addicting.  I wish they made birthday gift tags like this too because I’d use them all the time.

2014-12-17 14.15.26

Now all my presents look absolutely beautiful and I can’t wait to see the looks on everyone’s faces when I hand them out.

2014-12-17 14.15.48

Will you pick up all your holiday wrapping essentials at BJ’s Wholesale Club and make your gifts look just as nice on the outside, as they are on the inside?

The Boxtrolls Are Coming to DVD and Blu-ray on January 20, 2015

311193K2_Boxtrolls_BDOring_2DShot

The Boxtrolls are coming to DVD and Blu-ray on January 20, 2015

I’m so excited to share with you that The Boxtrolls are coming to DVD and Blu-ray on January 20, 2015! And perhaps you’ve already heard bu this great film has been nominated for 13 Annie Awards.

We are a huge movie family but we missed this one when it was in theaters so we are very excited to be able to watch it in our living room after the new year.

Quirky, mischievous and good-hearted, the Boxtrolls are unique creatures who have lovingly raised a human boy named Eggs in a fantastical charming cavern below the bustling streets of Cheesebridge. But when the evil Archibald Snatcher schemes to capture Eggs’ family, it’s up to Eggs and his feisty new friend Winnie to save the Boxtrolls!
