Merry Christmas Eve Eve --yes that's the eve before the eve! I'm so excited about Christmas this year. I love getting to spend extra time with my friends and family celebrating the season and getting a few things on my wish list. Of course it's not about the gifts, but we all love a little something new especially if it's something we've been wishing for.

One thing on my wish list this year is boots. There are so many fun styles out and I'm loving everything from tall riding boots to short little booties and I'm in love with the huge selection that Rack Room Shoes offers. 

After browsing the Rack Room Shoes website I fell in love with the Hayden women's boot from Pesaro.

Available in both black and brown these Hayden tall boots are perfect for holiday parties and can be worn both dressy or casual. I love the slightly wedged heel and the top buckle detailing. The best part is that they are on sale on the Rack Room Shoes website along with all boot styles!

Rack Room Shoes has something for the whole family. I love their huge selection of products and their very affordable prices. Footwear is a great gift idea this Christmas. Check out all available styles from Rack Room Shoes by visiting your local store or by going to:

Check out the Canon EOS Rebel T5i at Best Buy to Capture the Memories this Holiday Season!

(The Jackson Five Family has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.)

I love, love, love my Canon Rebel camera. I've had it for many years and it's honestly the best camera I have owned, but it's getting old and I would love an upgrade. So what's on my Christmas list this year, a Canon Rebel T5i, one of the best-selling DSLRs on the market.
This camera is perfect for those like me-- I am not a professional photographer, but I do love all of the options that make advanced photography easier and more user friendly. This one offers a touch screen for easier navigation, gives the option of taking video in HD and it has an 18.0-megapixel CMOS senor and DIGIC 5 image processor to help ensure vivid, crystal-clear images which is so important to me while trying to capture my family in action, especially during the busy holiday season!

It's a great gift idea that the entire family can use and when you purchase it from Best Buy this holiday season you'll save $150 on it!

My boys' love the VTech InnoTab, kids educational learning tablet. It's fun, entertaining and the best part is that it's very educational and never gets old with so many Learning Cartridges available to choose from.

Grady's new favorite game is the InnoTab Ultimate Spider-Man Learning Cartridge. He loves Spider-man so this one is so much fun for him.

It's geared for ages 4-7 (he's 6) and introduces spelling, animals, food groups, light reflection, weight and balance, materials, skip counting and logic. His favorite part is the adventure mode where kids can play 9 games in order as they follow a central storyline. He loves navigating Spider-Man through the city by swinging him through the air and guiding him as he rides on the Spidey-Cycle through the streets making sure not to hit the parked cars etc.. It's a must have InnoTab game for boys!

If you have a little girl then the InnoTab Doc McStuffins Create and Learn with Doc is a must too. Of course boys can play it, but it's so fun for girls as they can decorate banners, create costumes and make clay models of their favorite characters. Girls will love the Ballet Dance Party game, trying out new instruments and learning about healthy living. This cartridge is geared for ages 4-7 and also touches base on reading, vocabulary, memory, math and visual skills.

Visit Snowland going on now at Great Wolf Lodge through January 4th!

We went to Great Wolf Lodge over Halloween and had so much fun. 

Of course we have fun any time we are at Great Wolf and the water park, but celebrating 'Howl-O-Ween' there was a blast this year.

The boys loved getting dressed up and parading through the halls in their costumes and participating in the trick-or-treat trail for candy, listening to the spooktacular themed story time and dancing the night away during the Monster Bash Dance party! 

We couldn't go without spending some time in a few of our fave spots like the Northern Lights Arcade winning prizes, playing MagiQuest and eating at the Lodge Wood Fired Grill where the food is always excellent!

There is always something to do at Great Wolf Lodge and we definitely packed our days full once again and are looking forward to going back soon!

If you've ever thought about going to Great Wolf or love it and are looking for the perfect time to visit again you should check out Snowland going on now. From snow showers and twinkling lights in the Grand Lobby to gingerbread houses and enormous snowflakes, you'll love the magical atmosphere and all of the extras like visits from Santa that Snowland has to offer!
