My 10 Favorite Christmas Traditions

As we have been getting our Christmas decorations out this year, I’ve noticed my kiddos saying, “This always goes here.”& “We always do this”. Annnnnd it reminded me of all the special Christmas traditions that we have as a family. This is also the first Christmas my oldest son won’t be home with us. He is serving a mission in Utah. So I’ve been super emotional reflecting on all the Christmases we have had together. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family to share the holidays with. So humor me as we walk down my Memory Lane, & I’d love to hear your favorite Christmas Traditions in the comments below. :)

Hot Cocoa Neighbor Gift Idea {tutorial}

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #MerryAndBright #CollectiveBias

I love the holiday season! One way our family spreads love & holiday cheer is by making handmade gifts for our neighbors & friends. Let me show you how easy this Hot Cocoa Neighbor Gift Idea was to put together with a little help from American Greetings.

hot cocoa neighbor gift at GingerSnapCrafts.com

American Greeting is having fun this holiday season. They are making it easy for people to "Elf" their friends, neighbors, coworkers, favorite teachers & family. You may wonder what “Elfing” is! Well, let me tell you. ;) It’s creating a small gift using a festive bag or small basket filling it with M&M’s or other holiday treats, an American Greetings card or even this hot cocoa gift jar, & then leaving the gift on a neighbor's porch or on a teacher’s desk with a cute printable. You can print out this cute “You’ve Been Elfed” tag right {HERE}! You can also find a poem to go along with it & an “I’ve Been Elfed” hang tag to hang on their door, too.

Let It Snow Sign + 50+ Snow Day Activities

This post is brought to you by Life Storage.

Good morning! Winter is finally here. We were still eating dinner outside on our fabulous farmhouse picnic table last week, but I know soon (very, very soon) everything winter will be here in full force. That means snow! Yay! I grew up in Texas, & we didn’t see snow very often at all. When we moved to Northwest Arkansas (& our first winter rolled around) we fell in love with the snow. It is so beautiful & magical! Buuuuut after about the first week of being snowed in that all changed. A serious case of cabin fever had set in, so we had to come up with some fun ways to spend our snow days quickly. Over on the Life Storage blog I am sharing this huge DIY Let It Snow Sign along with 50+ Snow Day activities that have kept us sane over the years.

Christ Block {tutorial}

This post is brought to you by http://christmas.mormon.org/.

Hello! Yesterday I shared how we love to spread the joy on Christmas. Annnnd today I am so excited to let you know about the brand new #LIGHTtheWORLD campaign  from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that starts December 1st. For 25 days there will be 25 ways you can serve others. You can sign up {HERE} to get notified when everything begins. Every day they will have a different theme & a different way you can serve like Christ did. For example, day 11’s theme is Jesus Ministered to Children. One service idea to go along with that theme is to put a picture of Christ in your children’s bedrooms, & to teach your children of the Savior’s love for them. My kiddos & I decided to make these Christ Blocks for their bedrooms. We even made one for my missionary son. Let me show you how! :)
