The Magic of Christmas Lights

One of my favorite things about this time of year is the Christmas lights. I am so appreciative of the houses that go all out. There’s this one house that we like to visit called the “Christmas Castle.” They have the most impressive residential display I have ever seen.

Regalos navideños de Disney Baby para la Futura Mamá

Ir de compras para todas las personas en tu lista puede ser difícil, pero a veces comprar para la futura mamá es especialmente dificultoso. Si estás buscando regalos para una futura mamá a la que le gusta Disney Baby, considera las siguientes opciones:

Nuestro Fracaso de Galletas navideñas (fue todo un éxito)

El otro día mientras recogía a mi hijo de la escuela, me preguntó que podríamos hacer en casa. Realmente le gusta siempre “hacer algo”. Bizcochos, pastelitos, donas… al niño le encanta el dulce (igual que su mama) y disfruta hacer estar creaciones en la cocina. Pero este es el tema, no soy buena para hornear. Puedo hacer pastelitos y bizcochos, pero por alguna razón, las galletas son mis enemigas. Nunca he podido hacer una galleta decente. Pero compre unos moldes de galleta y decidí probar mi suerte –para beneficio de mi hijo.

Mixing Our Cultural Christmas Traditions

My husband and I both come from Hispanic families but were raised in America. We are the children of immigrants, and it’s always fascinated me how much we assimilate to the American culture versus how much we retain from our countries of origin.

This is most evident in the way we celebrate holidays. For the most part, as we were growing up, we did Christmas the way our parents had always done Christmas. This meant celebrating Noche Buena and Three King’s Day with not a big emphasis on Santa Claus. But now that we have kids of our own who are more Americanized, we have to decide how to mix the American traditions with our Hispanic ones.
