Giveaway Goodness, The 3AM Home Happenings, & 40% off for one more day!!

I am officially announcing that my friend, Alessia 
is having a HUGE NEW YEAR GIVEAWAY!!! I love spreading good news & this giveaway is full of goodies from some favorite education bloggers!! Click on the image below to get the details...

In other news, I will let you in on some things that I have been doing while the kids are home..
Christmas day was very nice and we had a lot of fun! We did not go out a buy a bunch of gifts this year for the kids. All they wanted was money, so we bought them a few little gifts, filled their stockings and then gave them hard cash!! hahaha

Here are some cute little pics & YES, that is a birchbox box that I used to place the money in...hahahaha!!! I found a use for those little boxes! My son was hilarious when he unwrapped it and saw the "Birchbox" logo! He said, "Isn't this for a bra!!?? You got us bras for Christmas??!!  Bwahahahaha!!! Oh, the darndest things kids say...

My sweet "almost" 16 little girl - sick for Christmas morning, but still pulled out a smile. I think Roxie (our little white Chihuahua) was scared of the mess that was unfolding.
My Son in front of the "Charlie Brown" tree that we will retire this year & his fan of Christmas cash!! Look at those blonde curls!! ADORBS!! I think he might kill me once this goes public..hahaha
Even Charlie had some fun unwrapping presents this year! What a funny dog we have...he was sooooo excited!! Although, he was not about to let anyone near that big bone of his..bwahahaha!!
I love this time of year in our neighborhood!! We can take walks to Main Street to see the lights and drink Hot Chocolate by the lights (actually, the kids were freezing, so we only stayed for a few second so I could snap a few photos...hahaha)
Look at how pretty that is!! I just love it!!

Okay, this is probably the best picture my phone would get... I JUST LOVE THIS!!
And while my kids were actually spending time together, I opened my son's present and built a Lego House!! hahaha!! One of my secret guilty pleasures is playing with Legos!!!
Take a look at the pics and my beautiful creation 

Here is a up close of my guy!! hahaha!! P.S. I followed directions from kit to build this house...tehehehe!!

And to end this post, I have a few pictures of Charlie's silly smiles!! I encouraged the smile by rubbing his belly...what a goof!! I know these pics are bad, but Santa didn't bring a new camera this year....but I still have my phone (-;
