Santa, reindeer and elves. Lights, decorations and presents. It’s easy for children to get wrapped up in the hype of Christmas. Sometimes even us parents do. And it’s hard not to as the holiday continues to become more and more commercialized. We can’t even finish Thanksgiving before it all starts, after all.
Hanukkah is here! In our family we have relatives that celebrate both Hanukkah and Christmas, so we always try to do crafts for both holidays and learn a little about each.

We love baking cookies at my house and it is the perfect way to have a fun afternoon with my kid. I decided to try something a little different and add decorations to turn our cookies into little reindeer’s.
The holiday season doesn’t have to be a time of stress and overwhelming feelings. It is a time to spend with your loved ones, laughing until you cry and eating delicious foods while being thankful for the memories and time spent with those near and dear to your heart.

1. Hungry Santa
Fatten up Santa before Christmas. Tilt the device to move Santa’s mouth under falling treats, but watch out for the healthy broccoli. Santa gets fatter and fatter as he chomps on all the goodies. Give him some fatty bonuses by bouncing the treats off his belly before he eats them, or eating long strings of treats all in a row. Go for the elusive “Crazy Chomp” bonus. You can’t play this one without laughing out loud.

Do you ever feel like sometimes things just happen and they are totally meant to be? I discovered Chinchar/Maloney on instagram (@chincharmaloney) and immediately fell in love with their birthstone rings. Those are really special and I couldn’t imagine having a ring close to my heart with my husband and daughter’s birthstones in it.
One thing I know for sure is that when I am stressed with a busy week there are two things I want from my dinner. Those two things are easy, and comfort food. At the end of the day I love to settle down around the table with some of our more fun and comforting family favorites. I don’t want to spend an hour or more around the stove whipping together a lavish meal filled with expensive ingredients that I can’t even pronounce. I’m talking about classic feel good and affordable fare for our whole family.
