The Reindeer Farm & Leavenworth at Christmas time

Happy Sunday friends!!  So, we basically had the BEST weekend ever.  Apparently Reindeer Farms are a thing and I was so excited to be able to visit this time of year.   At the start, the kids were allowed to feed the other animals around the farm (chickens, turkeys, bunnies, etc.) which started the tour on a good note in Lukie's book.  The kids also got a visit from Santa himself--since Luke was a little weary this time, Santa more or less photo bombed us but we ended with a total keeper.  I'm not sure the kids were so into the education and background of Reindeer but to me it was fascinating.  After the brief background, the group got to touch a bunch of antlers before we were led into the pen. 

The only sketchy part of the whole thing was their antlers!!  Since they are so friendly and were eating food out of our hands, I had to shield the kids faces so they wouldn't get scraped by a huge horn..but they didn't seem to mind and no worries about biting (they don't have top teeth) or kicking so....all good!

After we left the Reindeer farm we headed into Leavenworth.  This is our FAVORITE town this time of year.  If you haven't seen my previous posts, it's a beautiful little Bavarian town tucked away in the mountains.  They do it up for the holidays, they light up the ENTIRE town, have characters walking around taking pictures, carolers and all the mulled wine and hot chocolate you can handle!  It's basically the stuff of dreams.  This year went better than years past.  We had a plan for the cold and bundled up the kids extra good.  Although we weren't able to stay for the lighting ceremony I'm officially putting it on our Christmas bucket list for next year!

I love maximizing our fun during the season--makes even the winter darkness somehow bearable.  What bucket list things do you all having going this time of year!?

Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Your little


Tis the season to start stuffing those stockings!  Usually I just buy a bunch of cheap stuff in the dollar bin at target because small things seem to disappear quickly in our house...BUT, there are a few things that I have my eye on this year that would easily fit into a stocking.   Some of these items are things my kids already have or things I'm thinking of getting them and family this year!  Click on the links below the pictures to be taken directly to each site.

Happy shopping and thanks for your support!!

2018 Home Holiday Tour

For as far back as I can remember, Christmas has been magic.  That's the thing that kids don't really think about is effort, at any level, is remembered and appreciated.  I remember my mom putting in such an effort, decorating the tree and her wrapping every present (including the ones in our stockings!)  Putting up Christmas decor is NO joke, it's takes work (especially with eager hands who want to help) and is rarely ever the same from year to year but I just love it.  I'm an early decorator and am always late to take everything down just so that the lights can linger that much longer.  I always encourage my friends and family, even if you don't have much money or even if Christmas isn't exactly your thing, it will mean a lot most likely to your little ones and they will feed off your excitement if you make the effort to splash a little red and green all over. 

So without further ado, here is our Christmas home tour!!

Let me know if you want me to tag any sources and I'll be happy to do so!

Happy first official week of December!
