It’s the most magical time of year! And, since 2016, I’ve been putting together a magical list of events and activities for our Christmas Advent Calendar. Every year looks different because we have moved a lot, but the holidays have been even more exciting since moving to San Antonio. San Antonio takes on a really special persona during the holidays – the whole city lights up and has multiple events almost every single night of December! I LOVE San Antonio and all the amazing festivities! So, it brings me great joy to bring you my annual Ultimate List of Christmas and Holiday Events in San Antonio, Texas!Read More
We started a really special tradition when my oldest son was only a year old, a full calendar filled with Christmas Advent Activities and events. Since we started, we have moved three times, had a 2nd baby, and survived a lockdown; so we have gotten really creative with what we add to our annual Christmas Advent calendar!
So, I have always had one master list of local + anywhere activities, but because our local list is SO extensive I thought I’d throw this easy-to-scan post together for the moms anywhere in the world! You can do these in any order and change up any of these ideas. And here’s my biggest tip: HAVE FUN! Don’t stress about the calendar you put together. Do what you can, and enjoy those warm snuggles in front of a good book or Christmas movie for the in-between times.Read More

I have always been a lover of all things Christmas. It is the most exciting time of the year for me. Even before I was a Believer, it was the holiday I looked forward to January through November.
Now, as a mom, I have a whole new outlook on this amazing holiday. We take in all the local events, share the story of Jesus and enjoy shopping for gifts. Our three-year-old is beginning to love the season, too!
Here are a few traditions we hold dear to our hearts, and I hope it helps inspire you to build memories with your kiddos.
It is my favorite time of year! I love the fall and lead up to Christmas. It all starts with BabyCoolJ’s birthday in September, our anniversary and pumpkin patches in October, my birthday and fall festivals in November….then DECEMBER! From Christmas events to gift exchanges, Santa sightings and holiday movies, our Christmas activity advent calendar and ultimately celebrating the birth of Jesus. I absolutely love Christmas!
