Surprise Swag Giveaway

Since we reached 500 followers on our GFC, we thought it would be a great idea to have a Surprise Swag Giveaway for our Amazing Followers.  

Both Anna and I love Christmas time.  It is a time to gather with family and friends, open presents, and eat some amazing well as share stories with each other on previous Holiday moments together.  
My favorite part of the Holidays is watching my oldest daughter, Alexia rip open her presents during Christmas morning and watch her face since she always has the best facial expressions. ( Thank goodness for the camera since I can capture it all )
This will be the first Christmas my youngest, Devine, will be able to open her gifts since she's at the age when she can rip them open herself and I'm prepared ahead of time for her to like the wrapping paper, bows, and boxes more than her toys since she is only 13 months old.
I know Christmas has been better since the moment I became a parent myself and now I know why my Mom and Dad were excited to watch me open presents on Christmas morning.
It is also the time of year where I receive homemade gifts from my oldest daughter which are always the best gifts.  She puts a lot of heart into making her gifts, wrapping them up, and putting them underneath the tree.  Those gifts always make my heart melt.

My favorite part of the Holidays is just being with family and getting to see those who you rarely get to see. I love staying up late with cousins and aunts talking about old times. And the food, oh man, the food is always yummy. Each different family Christmas has a different kind of food. This year my Grandma's Christmas will be Mexican food, the Christmas lunch at my house will be seafood in honor of my dad, and the food at my moms will be soup and salads. So we get a little of everything! :)
This year Christmas is bitter sweet for me. One one hand both of my kids are at the age where Christmas is really fun. My daughter is 6 and my son is 3, so I expect Christmas morning this year to be a little extra crazy. And on the other hand, I just lost my dad in October, so this will be our first Christmas without him. I just have to remember my time with him and focus on spending time with my husband and kids.

Since we reached 500 followers we are giving away 3 Surprise Swag Packs.  =)  
It is our gift to our followers.  
You get a chance to win a bookmark from our blog and also Swag from Various Authors.  
Winners will be announced on 12/31.  =)

Spending time with family and seeing my daughters faces when they open there gifts that "santa" brought...

I love the time we spend as a family. I love driving on the empty streets and knowing that most everyone is in their home celebrating as well.

We have never focused on the gift giving piece of the holiday. That is just a nice bonus, the time together is priceless.
