There is so much that families can do in the month of December, most days there are more than one activity that could fill your calendar. Our family tries to pick and choose ones that will cover the age range of having an eight year old and a three year old; a lot of bang for our buck; and full of fun is a must (not to mention will not torture the parents). Cheekwood in December totally covers all of that and then some. It has quickly become our family's kick off to the holiday season and one of our most loved traditions for all of us.

We’ve all participated in Throwback Thursday – from posting old college photos to adorable shots of the kids as babies. It’s a fun way to recall the past and remember good times (and bad hair).

Who loves Yo Gabba Gabba!? I have a new respect for it after Jack Black was on the show for an episode. So I wish my kiddo didn't think she was too old for these types of shows anymore. I think it would be a ton of fun. And we have tickets to give away for it. This is a quick giveaway since the show is just on Tuesday, so don't miss it!
The holidays can be a tough time to stay healthy and maintain your weight. In fact, most Americans gain an average of five to 12 pounds between Halloween and New Year. And what’s worse, they don’t lose that extra weight, so it compounds every year. But, we can turn that trend around and be good role-models for our families. We can keep the holiday spirit throughout the season without the holiday hangover in the New Year. The holidays are stressful enough with shopping, decorating, parties, and mall traffic! So here are my stress-free tips for getting all the joy out of the season while avoiding the holiday bulge.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Walt Disney World brings magic to every vacation, but Disney during the holidays is a sight to behold. From early November until about January, the parks, resorts, common areas and restaurants are transformed into a tasteful glittery wonderland. It’s a feast for all of the senses!
It seems like the minute that the calendar switches from October to November, we are on a crash course to Christmas. The stores have their decorations already out, ads are screaming the holidays are coming, and our calendars are quickly filling up with dates for parties, pictures, Santa visits etc. With the craziness we could easily skim right over Thanksgiving, but we really shouldn't.
