Family Christmas Traditions: Dickens Village

DickensVillage (cover)

I think everyone here is pretty much familiar with the 1843 story of The Christmas Carol: you know, the one about that old miser who hates everything, especially Christmas, until he is visited by four ghosts  (yes, there are four - everyone leaves out poor old Marley), who tell him if he doesn't change his ways he is pretty much going to die alone and miserable…

Our Four Gift Christmas

A few weeks ago, I wrote about our family’s plan to have a more scaled back Christmas, which meant limiting our gift-giving to a simple four gift checklist:

#1. Something they…

Family Christmas Traditions - Washington's Crossing


I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! After a long and super busy week full of birthday and Christmas celebrations, I finally had a moment to sit down, go through some photos, and jot down a few thoughts.

As you can tell, our little family is BIG on traditions. Even thought I come from a terribly dysfunctional family, we had quite a few of our own and…

Family Traditions: Macy's Christmas Light Show


Philadelphia may not be as decadent and elegant as New York when it comes to our Christmas celebrations, but we definitely have a few things that simply cannot be found elsewhere in the nation. One of these holiday traditions is the Macy's Christmas Lights Show.

When I was a kid, Macy's was actually John…

Family Tradition: Comcast Holiday Light Show


Part of our Christmas Holiday traditions includes attending the light shows offered all over the city, both commercial and neighborhood run. There are few things more spectacular during the holiday season than elaborately decorated displays with beautifully strung lights, rich deep reds and greens, and the smell of pine emanating from fresh cut Christmas trees. And in addition to the highly publicized, world famous Wanamaker Light Show (now Macy's), which I will be discussing…

I always like to say that I am a very practical person. Really. When it comes to receiving a gift I cherish things more that I can actually use regularly as opposed to something ornamental, fashionable, or cliche. Even growing up I much preferred things such as art supplies, or books, or sheet music or clothes as opposed to whatever toy happened to be advertised that year (except for my ALF doll, I really did want an ALF doll! Ha!). In fact, I sometimes think that my love…

I love my Christmas socks

An apology to my family: I know I am a pain to buy gifts for. Sorry about that.

But, I can say that it is probably my Mom's fault.

Every year my devoted and wonderful husband…

Baby's Second Christmas

I know it's late, but this year was Jackson's second Christmas. I can't believe how big he is getting. He is at the age that is hard to shop for. He doesn't play with the little baby toys anymore, but he is still too young for some of the other toys out there. There wasn't a huge selection for his age right now. Santa got him a wooden train set table, which he does't really know how to play with yet, he just slaps all the pieces around because he is a destructive little boy who likes noise.…

This Christmas

Have you ever come across a post on social media that changed the way you see your world? I did, just this week. I came across a post on my newsfeed that showed dirty, rough hands. It had a story attached, that always piques my interest, so I read it and it hit me hard. My husband and I do so much for our kids so they never go without,…

Non-Toy Ideas for Gifts

Every year I say the same thing, "don't overdo it, Krystal!". What do I end up doing? You guessed it. Don't we all though? You're walking through the store and those little voices go off in your head as you near the toy aisle of just how much this would make your daughter light up. Or how much fun your son would have building this with his dad. The list goes on. We're always finding ways to justify overdoing it for our kids. And why not? They're our kids! Non-Toy gift ideas for the kids this holiday season. Treat the family to something more than just something to play with at home and get everyone involved. Since we want to always…

Busch Gardens - Christmas Town Experience

This would be our second visit to Busch Gardens this year, and I was excited because it's "Christmas Town" time! According to the weather forecast, there was only a 10% chance of rain, so I knew that meant 90% chance of rain. I was happy when we arrived because there was only a drizzle off and on...but that changed around mid day.

We arrived at…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
