Get Out and About this Holiday Season

Christmas and New Year Wishes

I can’t believe Christmas will be here in five more days.  I say this every year because as I get older and busier, time goes faster and faster.  However, you can’t let it go without getting out and about in your city.  Our favorite time to go see the holiday lights is the week between Christmas and New Years.  Although I love the hustle and bustle before Christmas, it’s a little crazy busy especially with three active children and two working parents.  Of course, my number one source for checking out lights and holiday activities in St. Louis is Kids Out and About in St. Louis.

Check out their holiday page for all kinds of activities throughout the holidays especially light displays, tree farms, holiday shows and events throughout the St. Louis area.   Attached is a link to their holiday page –  http://saintlouis.kidsoutandabout.com/content/master-guide-december-holiday-fun-and-around-st-louis

Kids out and About is a great resource for family activities. For those of you not located in St. Louis, you can also find this great organization in many other cities throughout the US and they continue to grow.

Get connected with them! Get out and about with your families this holiday season!

Mini Festive Flag

All American Flag Snack

All American Flag Snack

I couldn’t resist making another flag snack this Labor Day weekend.  However, this time I wanted to change-up my old “go to” flag recipe.  I envisioned a smaller flag using raspberries for my red color.  It worked out great.  There is nothing easier than making these kabobs.  I must admit that I think this smaller version is prettier.  This all American treat is always a favorite with the kids too.
