I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

The Best Time to Be a Kid and a Chance to Win a $1500.00 Gymboree Shopping Spree

Me - The best time to be a kid, wow! The holidays are a great time to be a a kid. I love exchanging presents with my family. When you're a kid you get more presents. Our family tradition is that my Mom writes the initials of all our presents on little pieces of paper and puts them in a container. Every night, we pick out a paper and that is our present for the night. After it gets dark, we light the candles and say the prayer with our Dad and our parents surprise us with the present we have picked out. Before we get our presents, we love to make up crazy things with the initials that we say our present is going to be like if the initials were "ab" we might say "annoying bear". That is fun, but not as fun as actually getting the real presents. I love our holiday traditions.
Mom - There are so many times when it is great to be a kid. One great time to be a kid is during the winter holidays. One of things that makes the holidays so special for kids is family traditions. One of our family traditions is taking New Year's videos. It is fun to see how how the kids have grown over the course of a year and hear how everyone's likes and dislikes have changed. Another tradition we have is sleeping around the fireplace in the living room on New Year's Eve. Other families have different traditions. Actor, Mario Lopez and his wife, Courtney like to bake pumpkin pie with their kids. Hear more about this Lopez Family tradition by clicking on this link Mario and Courtney Lopez video. I'm sure you and your family have traditions of your own. Gymboree wants to hear about those traditions. If you share your family traditions with Gymboree you can be featured in Gymboree's end-of-year video plus you'll  be entered for a chance to win a $2500.00 shopping spree at Gymboree. To enter just share your photos of how your family makes the holidays the best time to be a kid on Instagram or Twitter using #BestTimetoBeaKid #Contest. For official contest rules and to checkout all the fun go to this link.

And that's our view. When do you think is the best time to be a kid?

Tune in tomorrow for Tips for Tuesday.
