Freezing Time

Posted by: Aly Ragan on Dec 18, 2014 in Family Fun, Milestones, Parenting

The Christmas season is upon us and it is truly the most wonderful time of the year!

Reliving the magic of Christmas through my children’s eyes is so amazing. I get so much joy from their excitement and joy. I wish I could freeze time. At three years old, my boys imagination is hitting its peak. Their wonder and elation of all things Christmas radiates the room.

Christmas is Here and the Palmer Family is Ready!

Posted by: Tamara Palmer on Dec 17, 2014 in Family Fun

Wow, so the last time I posted a blog, it was almost Halloween. Here we are just a few months down the road and it is winter and Christmas is right around the corner!!! Is it me or did the time fly by?

PalmerChristmasSince my son is going to be two in January, this is his first Christmas we are celebrating that I actually feel like he’s going to realize something is going on. Last year he had fun, but he didn’t understand what was going on and didn’t really have any fun trying to unwrap presents. This year I believe will be a whole different story though. He’s absolutely addicted to Santa. We have four stuffed Santas in the house for him. He also LOVES the Christmas lights on the homes in our neighborhood. We live in a huge neighborhood that has an annual lighting competition, so Jr has plenty to see on our way home every night.

Santa

“You better not pout, you better not cry” aren’t lessons smaller children follow when taking pictures with Santa, and Dr. Stephen Sanches is telling you why.

Many parents with newborns imagine a photo of their smiling, happy baby on Ol’ Saint Nick’s lap. But in reality, those moms and dads are left with a chagrinned Kris Kringle and a screaming baby whose face is as red as Santa’s suit.

So what can parents do to keep their little ones off the naughty list and earn the top spot on the nice picture list?

The short answer is, well, not much.

With the holidays here and so much to get done, your family’s nutrition may be at the back of your mind. But a few simple tricks can turn holiday staples into healthy meals.

sweetcasseroleWith every holiday season comes our favorite treats, casseroles and cocktails.  One holiday tradition many of us have in common is the unwanted but accepted weight gain.  Accepted because we have a New Year around the corner and losing the extra pounds will be part of our New Year’s Resolution.

A sweet holiday treat during Christmastime is a candied sweet potato pie or casserole. Sweet potatoes are a healthier potato option, but the sugar and starches in a ¾ cup serving contains 315 calories, 15 grams of fat and more than 43 grams of carbohydrates. If you’re looking for a healthy alternative, check out our recipe for Sweet Potato Bites below.

Holiday Shopping Guide for Moms-To-Be

Posted by: Mommy-Go-Round Guest Blogger on Dec 11, 2014 in Family Fun, Pregnancy

The holidays are here, which means there’s a lot to do and no time to do it. By now you have the tree decorated, the lights shining outside and the stockings hung by the fireplace, but if you’re like many people during the holidays, you’re still a few gifts shy of finishing your shopping list – or, maybe (gulp) you haven’t even started!

Choosing the perfect holiday gift can be a stressful task, but we’re here to help. The Mommy-Go-Round talked to Cullen’s Babyland to find the present or stocking stuffer for a mom-to-be this year.

A favorite holiday treat to many is spinach madeleine, but the cheese and butter added to the spinach gives the side 280 calories and 23 grams of fat per each 2/3 cup serving.
