Christmas season is my favorite time of the year and it’s even more fun with kids. But it also means it’s cold and rainy and not as much fun to be outside.

Haha! Through our many road trips, I’ve learned that if you’re not prepared with activities, your toddler will cry…a lot. So I make

I love getting to carry on traditions that I did when I was a kid, and create new ones for my girls.
