Introducing Our Gingerbread Village!

This weekend we made time for another favorite holiday tradition, building and decorating a gingerbread house. Instead of one house, I found a kit that had four houses, a whole village! Now we just need a Mayor.

Picking Out Our Christmas Tree!

After the Thanksgiving festivities were over, it was officially Christmas for us. What kicks of the holiday season for us is picking out our Christmas tree at Galehouse Tree Farm in Doylestown. After we find THE tree, we like to visit the gift shop, get some hot cocoa and popcorn, then it is time to head home to decorate!

You couldwin a FREE Christmas tree all this week with me and WQMX, just be listening for the Country Quiz after 11am!

It's Time. I Think?

I was thinking that maybe this weekend I will take down and clean up the Christmas decor. I think it's time, but I wrestle with it because I love Christmas, and how pretty my trees look at night, and how my fresh cut tree smells, and all the decor! I saw some of my neighbors taking advantage of the nice weather last weekend, taking down their outdoor decorations, but I couldn't bring myself to do that yet. Of course with this weekends weather forecast, I now regret that decision, lol. 

So, we'll see what happens in the next couple of days. One more weekend? Maybe?

Time To Wrap!

I am taking tomorrow off and I'm doing a couple of things I have been putting off (not intentionally): baking cookies and wrapping gifts! I really like wrapping gifts, especially the ribbon and bows, but it does take a while to get it done. So cookies first, lol! By now, you may know I am a fan of Babs and her account Brunch with Babs, always coming through with the helpful tips and advice. In this video she talks about gift wrapping, and I had no idea you could sharpen scissors with aluminum foil!

Christmas Lights!

Christmas lights are one of the most wonderful things about Christmas in my opinion. I love driving around with my family and looking at all the displays that everyone has put so much effort and Christmas spirit into! It's a tradition to jump in the car with cups of hot cocoa to seek out all the pretty lights!

Country Living put together a list of the 41 Best Most Magical Christmas Light Displays Across the U.S. While the pictures are pretty to look at, and to make notes for your next winter vacation, there is nothing like seeing them in person. Every year, I check out the list of local displays from Northeast Ohio Family Fun before we head out the door. They put together lists by county which is super helpful and easy to find the ones near you! Click here for all the info, including drive through displays and ones that are set to music!

'Tis The Season!

I love the holiday season, so I get started right after Halloween. The week after is used to take down all of those decorations and store them for next year. Then all the Christmas decor comes out and a few days later trees are up, lights are on, and the Christmas tunes are cranked! And I'm sooooo close to baking my first batch of cookies, lol! Next up after Thanksgiving, we'll get our fresh cut tree at Galehouse Tree Farms, one of our favorite holiday traditions! Then, all the decorating will be complete.

I've been enjoying the holidays for a little over a week now, and I hope my family loves how I decorated when they come over for Thanksgiving dinner! Happy Holidays!

The City of Massillon will host a Holiday Parade and Fireworks display to welcome the Holidays (AND SANTA CLAUS) this Saturday, November 23rd.  The Parade will step-off at 5pm and will be followed by a 10 minute fireworks display to cap off the night.

Residents say that they like the idea of the Holiday Parade taking place in the evening because it gives participants a chance to decorate floats and vehicles with holiday lighting displays, giving an even more festive vibe to the night.
