Visiting Santa at the Eaton Centre has been a family tradition since my oldest was a baby. Our family has grown and the Eaton Centre has changed but a visit with Santa is still part of our holiday experience. This year we had the chance to hang out with Santa in his Toronto log cabin.
Earlier I shared a list of 51 Advent Calendar Craft Ideas to celebrate the days leading up to Christmas. One idea we included in the list, and an idea my family participates in at home, is enjoying a different holiday themed book each day before Christmas. Here are 24 Days of Holiday Books, some old favourites mixed in with new releases, to count your way to Christmas.
As you might know I love Benefit Cosmetics, like their Creaseless Cream Eye Shadow and the Feelin’ Dandy kit. When they came out with there holiday kits I was super exited especially when I Benefit Canada sent me the Groovy Kind-a-Love kit.
My family walked away from cable years ago for the less expensive and more flexible Netflix and we’ve never regretted the move. We loved the variety of shows and movies (both old and new) but what really is excited is some of the original series programming from Netflix Canada.
When vacationing with your family in Orlando, there are many accommodation options but All Star Vacation Homes offer an alternative. Set-up your home base and enjoy these 7 benefits of having a home away from home.
I love the idea of decorative packages during the holidays. These brightly coloured gifts and lovely homemade jars, all tied up with beautiful ribbon. Well the LabelWorks LW-400 from Epson makes this wrapping a little easier and we have a one to giveaway in a festive little package.
The holidays always bring up for me feelings of nostalgia. I can’t help but think about the year that has passed and how my kids have grown (again). Handmade ornaments are a great way to capture a point in time, whether as a decoration on the tree or as a gift for the relatives. Plus making ornaments are a great way to keep the kids busy.
My smart phone keeps me connected but it also enables me to capture a moment in time and share it. Instagram is my new photo album, enabling me to share travel experiences and everyday family silliness. Now I’ve found a way to bring those moments out into the real world (and surprise my husband).
