Snow...

It finally snowed!! The boys have been begging for snow (as if I had any control over it). There is nothing like snow to make it feel like Christmas. Yesterday, everywhere we went someone wished us a Merry Christmas. It is so fun...

Merry Christmas...(the boys have been enjoying this one)



PS - I finally figured out something perfect for stockings. We don't need any more candy. Oranges are fun and they will get one this year too but I wanted something that was still a treat and fun but not crazy bad...so, I decided on those little cereal boxes. They will love it. Fun cereal that they don't get that often and it is still a good treat

Growing up, we weren't allowed to eat "sugar cereal" on a regular basis, so my parents gave us big boxes of sugar cereal as presents. It's a good memory.

i got froot loops every year for christmas. i still don't feel like it's christmas without them!! for our boys we put in stuff we never let them have: fruit snacks, little cereal boxes, juice boxes, granola bars (like the chocolate chip ones). they're still super excited about them!

I LOVE the idea of the little cereal boxes! That's perfect for what I have been trying to think up. Thanks for sharing!

the last 2 years i have done ramen noodles or canned ravioli (junk they don't get often), sure makes Christmas lunch a breeze! maybe i'll get some cereal boxes too! i'm tired of spending hours of my holidays in the kitchen when i want to relax and enjoy it. last year we had rootbeer floats for christmas eve dinner and everyone loved it - no stress. and we eat pretty healthy the rest of the time.
