Teaching the True Meaning of Christmas to Children

My six year old son asked what I’d like for Christmas …and I told him that I enjoy giving gifts more than receiving I didn’t really want anything.

As a child I think it’s hard to understand the concept of being truly happy to give gifts versus finding happiness in just the receiving of gifts.

We have our children give gifts to their siblings and friends, to practice the importance of giving.

As a family we make our favorite treats and give them away to friends and neighbors.

I think anytime we can remind children that giving and serving makes Christmas special …we are teaching them to be selfless and charitable.

What do you do to teach your children the true meaning of Christmas?

Here is access to a free printable for 20 days of True Christmas.

Merry Christmas !

The Best Gluten-Free Cookies and Hot Cocoa Mix!

With the holidays around the corner ..this is a fun time to enjoy family and friends company while enjoying some tasty treats.

When you love a gluten-free lifestyle, often times the common treat isn’t usually something that passes as gluten-free.

Well— don’t worry!

Below are two recipe links to our delicious gluten-free oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, as well as our favorite homemade hot cocoa.

Here is our Gluten-fee cookie recipe. Keep in mind, when you take the cookies out of the oven they may not look quite right, but as you let them sit for a minute on the cookie sheet you will see they make great cookies with a delicious texture and flavor!

And for the hot cocoa recipe, you can find that here.

I have always enjoyed homemade hot cocoa better than store bought .. the flavor is more rich and vibrant!

However – if I do get a store bought hot cocoa, my top choice is Stephens mint hot chocolate.

We hope you enjoy these tasty treats… and even more, we hope you’re holidays are fun and memorable!
