A Holiday Exchange Party and Giveaway

It's time to PARTY Nestle style over the next 2 weeks myself and my fellow Blogger moms
oh,Amanda, Southern Plate, The Mommy Files and Supermom Central will all be part of the Holiday Exchange sharing tips, traditions and great giveaways that you can enter on each of our sites.

Ready to Party? - Lets kick off our Holiday Exchange with Traditions:

I have many times been accused of being a tradition and celebration junkie - Yes, I plead guilty to the charge of enjoying the fun of creating celebrations with my family.

The celebrations have only just begun here in our home from counting down the days until Christmas to decorating our home. One of our family favorites is Family movie night - A night when we all stay home eat dinner together and then pile onto our couch to watch either a new movie or a family favorite Christmas movie from years past and of course I create a fun buffet of treats including popcorn, candy and home baked goodies to enjoy while watching the mo
vie together.

This year I found a new treat to serve during our Family movie night from The
Nestle Family Holiday Celebration website The Quick Brownie Bites Sundaesdoesn't it look yummy? Pretty sure my family is gonna go wild over this new recipe and it is so super simple to make. Click here for recipe.

What about your family - What are some of your favorite holiday traditions? Have any of those been passed down for generations? How about ideas for creating new family traditions?

Ready to WIN a family MOVIE night pack?

WIN: The Nestle Family holiday movie night package, includes “A Christmas Story” Collector’s Edition DVD, 3-flavor pack of OVALTINE, RAISINETS, a family size dinner from STOUFFER’S and DREYER’S/EDY’S cups.

This is really my mom's tradition but I love it and hope she never stops. She buys or makes an ornament every year then attaches a small tag to it. She dates the tag and writes a summary of the year. Sometimes the notes are about world events like 9/11, inflation or gas lines in 70's and other times, notes about us kids (now all adults). It's wonderful to go back and read the tags and remember the past years highlights.

My favorite tradition is going to my parents early between 5-6 and opening our Santa gifts and see what Santa left everyone (kids, adults, ect..) and then have a huge family breakfast in our jammies. Even though my brother and I are both married and have kids of our own we still always participate in this tradition and the kids are so excited!

Our favorite family tradition is the day we spend together first buying the "perfect" real tree, then coming home and decorating it while we have hot chocolate & homemade cookies and listen to Christmas songs. My most precious ornaments to put on our tree are all the handmade ones that my children made over the years.
