I love the holidays.
It is truly my favorite time of the year for a lot of reasons, but mostly because it reminds me to slow down and be very deliberate about the time I spend with my family. I spend weeks cramming in as much baking, blog post writing, shopping, and present wrapping as I can so that for a couple of weeks, I can be all theirs.
Creating holiday traditions and memories with the kiddos is so important to me. I want them to look back on past Christmases and remember a lot of love and a whole lot of fun. And I really want them to have some traditions to share with their own kids, so they always have a bit of their childhood Christmases to hang on to.
Over the years, we have established some fun traditions with Jon David. But adding a new baby to the mix has made it necessary to revise. Two year olds are capable of only so much…for only so long.
Last night we went to look at Christmas lights, stopping at a restaurant halfway through before venturing back out. It was a good system, especially for a toddler who has NEVER been much of a car rider. I hear about these littles who just snooze and snooze for hours in the car and wonder, what is this magic? My Lucy Goose has been a fussy rider since she was born and I’m starting to think it will be that way for quite some time. So this will most likely be our new tradition — going out to look at Christmas lights, with a break for chips and queso somewhere in the middle. I think I can be okay with that.
As a kid, I was not allowed to have soda very often. Getting a Coke was a huge treat — we didn’t keep it in the house. But every year at Christmas, my mom would go buy a few six packs of small glass bottles of Coca-Cola, and on Christmas, we were allowed to drink several. It was truly one of the highlights of the entire day. I remember going to the kitchen and piling up a plate of Christmas cookies, grabbing a cold bottle of Coke and heading to my room to play with my new toys. It was the best day ever.
As an adult, I always make sure to buy the little glass bottles of Coca-Cola for our house at Christmas. Just like I did as a kid, Jon David gets so excited about having his very own bottles of Coke. There is just something about them that feels extra special, isn’t there?
This year I am excited because Coca-Cola has a brand new product — Coca-Cola Life™. It is the Coca-Cola Company’s FIRST reduced-calorie cola sweetened with a blend of stevia leaf extract and cane sugar. I got to try Coca-Cola Life for myself and absolutely LOVE it. It has 35% fewer calories than leading colas and tastes really great! It’s hard to convince me to stray from original Coca-Cola, but I think this has me officially converted. It’s available at most big name retailers, so look for it with the green label — I think you’ll love it as much as I do.
But guess what? One of you gets to try it for FREE!
Coca-Cola wants to send one of you a six pack of 8oz glass bottles of Coca-Cola Life, along with Coca-Cola Life shirts!
