Importance of Family Time & Traditions this Season

This month is flying by! The hustle of Christmas shopping seems busier each year, stores are packed and traffic is unbearable. I’m glad I’m all done with all the Christmas shopping and did most of the shopping online. I even mailed a big box of presents early this time around and are currently on their way to my family in Texas.

In the coming weeks we have a full schedule of family time. Our litttle guy turns 3 on the 19th and we have a little party to plan.

We have a cookie baking kind of day with our kiddos this week. When it comes to baking, they get so excited and I can not wait to see their little faces when they cut out and decorate their own cookies.

We are keeping busy this holiday season and spending more time together. We are turning off the electronics and making time to re-connect as a family during the holidays.


On December 23, we will be having a Tamalada Day that includes making our annual tamales in two delicious filings. Making tamales on Christmas Eve, Eve is something we do each year as a little family for 6 years now. Ever since I formed my own family, we adapted my mom’s tradition and made if our own. The recipe we use every year or our tamales is passed down from my mom. My little girl loves helping out prepping the masa, she loves spreading the masa on the corn husks and loves eating them.

Now that we just recently adopted The Elf on the shelf, our kiddos have been so ecstatic to find their scout elf every day. Aries has made her letters, and even gave her a letter to Santa to our scout elf, Cora.  Our kiddos love the little messes Cora makes, now we have to think of more ideas for Cora’s next spot.

How are you planning to make an effort to celebrate with your family this season?
