It's Not Too Late, I've got You Covered!

Haven't mailed those Christmas cards yet? Not to worry, you can send these personalized Disney Holiday Snow Globe emails instead. Easy-peasy, just create a free account, choose any picture and upload! Or if you've been at the parks lately, pick from a photopass picture. Check out my super cute niece, you can even make it snow! Want to send an email without uploading a picture? Try this.

We went green this year with this paperless card.


There's still time to get these under the tree....
Here are my top 5:

1. Annual Passes to Disneyland (always our family favorite)
Purchase them online The ultimate gift that keeps on giving. Celebrating at Disney Resorts are what dreams are made of! Big news on Southern California resident passes below.

2. Family Outing to the El Capitan in Hollywood for a stage show and movie Bolt.
Gifts that double as family outings are a winner for everyone! Have fun exploring old Holloywood while you're there. Open Christmas and New Years Day.

3. Wii or PS2 Game: Hasbro Family Game Night
Hasbro Family Game Night features family favorites such as CONNECT FOUR, BATTLESHIP, YAHTZEE, BOGGLE, SORRY! and the all new, SORRY! Sliders. Excellent fun for the whole family, this will be a weekly event with our family. All the laughs and together time without the mess... that's right, no clean up, no missing pieces! YES! We will be playing this on Christmas Eve with a packed house!

4. Wii Game: Boom Blox
Find it here. This game is by Steven Spielberg and if that isn't enough, not only is it fun, fun, fun, you have to use brain power. Boom Blox is #1 on my son's Christmas List!!!

5. Barnes & Noble Gift Card
Another destination gift. Take the family on an outing to your neighborhood Barnes & Noble. If your bookstore has a cafe connected to it, even better! Sip a Starbucks hot cocoa together, they make a child size for only $1.00 and temperature is kid friendly too. Next, stroll over to the kids section, pull up some carpet, have you child pick out a book and read it together. Foster the love of reading with your kids. This is really fun if you make it a special event. Find a store near you.


Disneyland Resort News:
Disneyland Resort Makes Annual Passes More Accessible and Affordable for Southern California Residents

Just in time for the holidays, Southern California Residents Can Now Purchase Annual Passports through a New Monthly Payment Program ANAHEIM, CALIF, December 15, 2008 - As Disneyland Resort celebrates the holiday gift-giving season, a newly launched Monthly Payment Program for Annual Passholders will make it easier for Southern California residents to have their own frequent Disneyland Resort celebrations in the year to come. This new program lets Southern California residents enjoy the Disneyland Resort magic throughout the year with an Annual Passport, while paying in 12 monthly installments. By selecting the payment option, Guests will pay for the cost of a 1-Day, 1-Park ticket upon purchase and will pay the remaining amount over the next 12 months, with no finance charges applied. For example, a Guest purchasing a Southern California Select Annual Passport for $134 would pay $69 at the time of purchase - with the remaining balance of $65 spread out over the next 12 months. Through this new program, Guests can literally turn a one-day ticket into an Annual Pass for less than $6 a month.

Putting Christ back into Christmas

And No, I'm not talking about shouting the the Lords name in vain at the guy who stole my parking spot while I was shopping at Target for Christmas gifts.
I'm talking about the real deal... I returned home from my Mom to Mom ministry feeling full of Christmas blessings. I choose a family to adopt this Christmas, and the reason I choose this family is they have a 5 year old boy. My son is eight but I know he will be able to relate to this boy as we purchase things to give him for Christmas. These are the things DanieI has asked Santa for this year: new shoes, a warm jacket, balls and an action figure. Once you wipe your eyes, keep reading. The feeling of giving makes your heart swell when you realize Daniel needs a warm coat and new shoes for kindergarten. It makes you think, I've been entertaining friends and family and the cost of wine alone,would give Daniel a Merry Christmas. So, this girl's going shopping. I thought I was completely done with my Christmas shopping, but God had other plans!
I am grateful to have 40 women I can look to as examples of growing their spiritual lives.
Thank You my Mom to Mom sisters!
This is a short but sweet little story.... There's nothing like being at a Disney Park and being reminded of those three little words.
