Getting Into The Christmas Spirit and Travel Tips

The holidays are here! I absolutely love Christmas and if you walked in my house today you wouldn’t be surprised. It’s been a full-family effort to get it all decorated – from the Christmas trees to the wreath on the door, the candles in each window and the lights on the roof, I am so thankful to have a husband that loves Christmas as much as me. We got engaged on Christmas day so the holidays are extra special for us. Our daughter, Sarah, is finally old enough to get caught up in the holiday magic and it has been great to share some of our favorite traditions with her. We took her and Elizabeth to the mall on Saturday to get their picture taken with Santa and it turned out perfectly! My husband and I were both surprised with how well Elizabeth behaved – most young babies are terrified of Santa but Elizabeth just kept looking at him and grabbing his beard (sorry, Santa)!

Even though our house is all bedecked for the holidays, we will be doing a good bit of traveling next week – long car trips to visit my family as well as my husband’s parents. On the packing list: toys and games for the girls, lots of snacks, Christmas tunes, and my Tummy Tuck Belt. Why that last item? Well, I feel like traveling is a great time to use my belt since I’ll be in the car for many hours I can put it on before and after. Plus, with all the Christmas treats I plan to eat, it will come in handy!

Happy holidays to all my readers! Wishing you happy days and safe travels.
