Power Rangers Super Samurai: A Christmas Wish

 Power Rangers Super Samurai: A Christmas Wish Christmas pretty much came early for a little 5-year-old in my house when Power Rangers Super Samurai: A Christmas Wish, arrived at our door.  He was so giddy with excitement that we had to watch it right away, and then has watched it several times since.

Alpha and Omega 2: A Howl-iday Adventure DVD Review and Giveaway

Alpha and Omega 2: A Howl-iday Adventure Those who know me well know that without a doubt, Christmas is my most favorite time of year.  Now, I know what you are thinking – It’s not even Halloween yet!  Yes, I get it but I am one of those who is almost done with my Christmas shopping already.  I get too excited for the holiday season and since it is still above 80° here and we have never even come close to having a white Christmas, I rely on a lot of Christmas movies to get me into the Christmas spirit.  Every year I try to add to my collection of Christmas movies, so when my boys and I had the chance to receive and review Alpha and Omega 2: A Howl-iday adventure, we jumped at the chance.

Christmas Traditions

My boys are also insistent on decorating a gingerbread house.  One day I’ll get up the courage to make them from scratch (Oh, who am I kidding.  That’s never going to happen. 😉 ) but for now the Gingerbread house kits will have to work. This year we found a Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Gingerbread House Kit with gummy critters that we got a chuckle out of because they were a little pretty ridiculous. We always go on a Christmas light hunt to find as many Christmas lights as we can and of course we blast the Christmas tunes as we go. And if we get lucky we might just run into Santa. (No sure if he was trying to be “scary Santa” or what but I think I’d be a little worried to sit on his lap. hehe) […]
