Holiday Memories #SearsMom

Some of my favourite Christmas moments include my 6 cousins. We are a wacky, artistic and fun bunch and as kids (err...and last year) we would put on Christmas concerts, dances and performances for our parents. We would even make little tickets and set up a theatre for everyone to come and watch. A full Christmas spectacle.

Another thing we did was take a group photo. The family has grown over the years (our youngest cousin Michael is missing from Photo #1), but we wouldn't dream of ending this tradition. Before the end of the night, someone always yells out "COUSIN PICTURE!!", we take our spots and pose. 


When it came to exchanging gifts, we did it one family at a time. That way, everyone got a chance to watch, oooh and ahhh and check out the latest toys and fashions we each received. 

If you haven't started your holiday shopping, you've got 20 days left before Santa squeezes down your chimney, or in the case of my cousins' gift exchange, 19, as we always celebrated Christmas Eve. 

One of my best time-management tips this holiday season is to do some online shopping, and pick a store you can buy more than one type of item -- like Sears. Sears has done the guessing work for you and even has a list of their TOP TOYS, which are available in store, and online.

On my daughter's list this year? (Well, the list I made....) The Fisher-Price Little People Disney Princess Klip Klop Stable. Say that 5 times fast. 

Sears is also having an exciting Facebook contest -- all you need to do is Like their page and make a comment to be entered to win one of Sears' hottest toys! The contest happens every Friday and ends December 13, 2013, so you've got 2 more chances to win!!

Good Luck!
