As I was trying to think of something Chirstmasy  for the past few days that I haven’t seen on any one else’s blog and then it came to me, an interview with my youngest  son who is four and very excited about Christmas. I thought it would be super cute, and with his imagination, definitely worth the read. My son comes up with the craziest things, I guess he get’s that from his momma ;). I hope you all enjoy this interview about Christmas as much as I enjoyed giving it!!  I am also going to be posting the same in interview with my oldest son who just turned ten!! Please feel free to comment and share. I would love to see the same interview with other little ones.

Merry Christmas! Xo

The best way to spread Christmas Cheer, is singing loud for all to hear. – Buddy the Elf.

With Christmas right around the corner I thought it would be a great idea to spread a little Christmas Cheer to all my blog friends out there!

Although I can’t sing (lol), I want to share some of my favorite Christmas quotes with all of you. I hope this can bring a piece of sunshine to your day, along with an extra dash of Christmas spirit!

Easy-peasy DIY Christmas Present

This year I have decided I am going to try a DIY Christmas gift for all the important women in my life. I got on Pinterest and found some great idea’s. I found some recipes for Bath salts and bath bombs and knew this is something most women enjoy. I then started throwing ingredients together> 🙂

Today i’m sharing with you my homemade peppermint bath soak 

I didn’t follow some of the steps exactly as listed on Pinterest, but instead made it my own and twisted it up a bit. Pretty much mixed all the ingredients together and waallaaaa 🙂 

 

Peppermint Bath Soak

 

Here is what you need-

  • 1 1/2 cup of Coarse Sea Salt
  • 3/4 cup of Epsom Salt
  • 1/4 cup of Baking Soda
  • A few drops of peppermint essential oil. 
  • Food coloring if you want to add color to the bath salts. (I added pink powder coloring)
  • A jar or container to store the bath saltsIMG_0905.jpg

Margarita’s, Tamales and Christmas*

Fiesta Kind of Christmas for our bunch.

     Christmas is an exciting time of year! Many people look forward to Christmas for many different reasons wether it be presents, lights, decoration’s, or being with their family. Which I agree, these are all great reasons. When it comes to my family, sometime’s we just aren’t on the traditional/normal side, especially when it’s Christmas.

Here are some of the reasons I get super excited about our family’s Christmas:

  1. FAMILY TIME
  2. SEEING THE BOYS SO EXCITED AND HAPPY
  3. CHRISTMAS MUSIC
  4. PRETTY LIGHTS
  5. MAKING OUR HOMEMADE TAMALES WITH MY SISTER AND MY MOM
  6. EATING THE HOMEMADE TAMALES AND LOTS OF OTHER MEXICAN FOOD WITH MY FAMILY ON XMAS EVE
  7. DRINKING MARGARITA’S WITH MY FAMILY

Today we made the tamales.

It was all fun in games until the tamale’s started to steam and blew some type of breaker and most of the house lost electricity. lol!

We finally managed to get an “OK” picture of the three of us taken by my 4 year old. It was a difficult task to say the least. I’m just glad I wasn’t alone with the casual, no makeup, hang out with my mom and sister department.

I hope this years turns out as yummy as last years Christmas dinner. They seem to be turning out better each year.

I am sure I will be happy either way. Last Christmas I  was one happy Momma!

I hope you have enjoyed reading a little about my Christmas tradition with my family. I like to think we aren’t alone in the non-traditional type Christmas get together. Please feel free to share your favorite traditions. XO

 

Who would have thought? A Christmas tree from Lowes?!

fullsizeoutput_6f9

***This year we went a different route then our normal traditional artificial Christmas tree. We decided we would have real Christmas tree!!! I did some research on the best Christmas tree farm near me . Turns out the there is only a couple to pick from, not many options. Both farms were nearly 2 hours away. SOOOOOOO Lowes it was!!!! I was super icky about picking a Christmas tree up from Lowes but i’m glad we did!! It’s beautiful!***

Although it was dark we still managed to pick out our perfect tree. Lowes cut and bagged the tree for us, it was great, and we only paid $50.00 . Of course we needed a stand which also purchased from Lowes. Once we got our tree home we set it up on its stand and I immediately watered it and began the fun part, LIGHTS and ORNAMENTS!!

Who would have thought a Christmas tree from Lowes would be so perfect?!?! Not me!

We also decided to put up are artificial tree as well. We have two trees in our family room! Talk about Christmas spirit. :)) ****
