I was trying to think what our family does for Christmas traditions. The first Christmas we were all together, we were in Missouri. Second in Okinawa, the husband was deployed for the third, and we were missing a child for the fourth. It’s hard to keep up traditions.
My mom always (and still does) makes Christmas cut-out cookies and lots of other treats. We’ve kept on making them with the kids. She and my dad were around the first few years and helped Little Man make them. Now, I make them with the kids. The last 2 years, we’ve had tamales for Christmas and I plan to keep that up if I can. We always watch all the Christmas specials with the kids, but I love those, especially Frosty.
So, I asked my sponsors what they do.
My family goes to temple square in Down Town Salt Lake City to see the lights. We also like to go see the lights at the Zoo and stroll around This Is The Place Heritage park and listen to period dressed carolers and do the Virginia Reel around the big Christmas tree in the school house. There are all sorts of fun things for families to do in Salt Lake at Christmas time. It is hard to choose just one!
Debbie’s not a blogger and therefore not as easy to stalk, so I’ll tell you some of what I know. First of all, I’ve known her since we were 14. We went to high school together. She’s married with 5 kids, ranging from 5 to 12. This is what she had to say about Nerium. “I have been with Nerium International for 4 months. I started selling the product after using it and could not believe the amazing results. I have been with different skin care companies, and never had a found a product that worked liked this. So I joined, and have been sharing Nerium with everyone I know. Nerium only has 2 products, the night cream and just released in September, the day cream. I know when some people hear Age-defying cream. They think, I don’t need that! Which I am 32, so I am trying to prevent the wrinkles. But Nerium also addresses enlarged pores and uneven skin texture, which is what sold me on it! After looking at my before and after pictures, I just had to share with everyone! Nerium has an amazing business opportunity, and they are only growing larger! In 2014 we will start going Global which is very exciting!”
Ever since I was a little girl my favorite dessert has been pineapple upside down cake. And, every year on Christmas I make one. While we were living in Hawaii, I loved being able to make it with fresh, locally grown pineapple. This year I’ll be continuing the tradition, even if the pineapple isn’t quite so local.

A tradition I am carrying on from my childhood is having cinnamon rolls Christmas morning…of course my baker of a husband makes them from scratch. And since having children I absolutely love seeing their excitement from decorating the tree, to reading Christmas stories, watching seasonal shows, and opening presents.
I love Christmas and our traditions! We always decorate the weekend after Thanksgiving, including cutting down our Christmas tree. Then on Christmas Eve we go to Church and when we get back we change into our brand new pj’s. Then we each get to open 1 gift. We have more but those are my favorites. I look forward to them every year.
Stop by, tell these ladies hi, and show them some love!
