Once Upon a Northpole Christmas! Christmas Traditions

Oh my goodness, Christmas is right around the corner... I looooove everything Christmas, and so do our four little boys!  We are SO excited for Christmas this year because even our littlest guy is old enough to get into the excitement now.  We enjoy so many fun traditions during Christmas time, and definitely one of our favorite things during the Christmas season is to cuddle up in Christmas pajamas and watch holiday movies.  

This year we're totally excited for a new movie coming out, Once Upon a NorthPole Christmas by Hallmark.  And I'm so excited that Hallmark has released an entire collection of Holiday toys to go along with the fun of the movie!  And in celebration of the upcoming movie and Christmas itself, I surprised our boys with a fun "San Diego Snow Day" with toys and items from the Northpole Toys line from Hallmark! 

Last year we started a fun new tradition where I wrapped up all of our Christmas books, then every night the boys unwrapped a book and that was their bedtime story for the night.  It was such a fun new tradition, so I'm thrilled to be able to add a new Christmas book to our collection, one that I'm sure we will treasure for years, Once Upon a Northpole Christmas.  Bake some gingerbread cookies, make some hot cocoa, and it's story time! 

I couldn't resist picking up the cutest Christmas mug ever for myself.  It would make such a fun hostess or teacher gift too. 

In addition to the book, there is the cutest Find Me Santa Snowflake that lights up different colors and can be hung in a window to help different Santa to your house.  My little guys are seriously loving this fun snowflake.  They love how it changes colors and they can't wait to hang it in our front window for Santa to see and deliver the goods on Christmas Eve night! 

And the excitement on our boys' faces when I pulled out these Avalaunchers for them... it was priceless!  We live in San Diego, so Snow Days are pretty much unheard of here.  So being able to bring a little bit of a Snow Day into our home here was so much fun! 

Our oldest son was a pro at launching snow balls...

While his little brother was a fan of grabbing as many snowballs as he could!  Luckily you can pick up snowball refills at Walmart (where I bought all of these Northpole Toys) in case you have a snowball hoarder on your hands too :) 

And when the snowball fight was over, the boys were in for another treat.  They got to make their own snow with Northpole's Snow Now.  It's snow in a can!  

We just poured it into a bowl,

Added a little bit of water, and SNOW!! This was fascinating for the little guys.

So, who is excited for Christmas and for Hallmark's new Once Upon a Northpole Christmas movie and line of Christmas toys?  WE ARE!!  

Here's a cute clip from Hallmark for you... 

What are your favorite Christmas traditions?  Any favorite Christmas movies?  Be sure to mark your calendar for Saturday, November 15th for the new TV movie, Once Upon a Northpole Christmas!  (8 pm/7 Central on the Hallmark Channel).  I'll definitely be curled up on the couch with my boys and with my Once Upon a Northpole Christmas mug {filled with Christmas Cheer, of course!} 

Here's some of the amazing selection of Northpole Toys on the shelf at Walmart.

Have a great weekend friends! xoxo

I love it! We don't get snow much here in Texas, either, so this is an amazing idea to help bring a little of the magic of snow to our kiddos! :D #client
