Christmas Giveaway #1: 4-Piece Cookie Cutter Set

It's Christmastime and we want to thank you for a year full of great mommy moments here on Mommy Diaries! Each week for the next 3 weeks we will be giving something fun away to use with your kids...or save to put under the tree from you know who.

This week we're giving away a 4-piece cookie cutter set so you and the kids can make some fun cookies to share (or eat all yourself.) The set was donated by Cheap Cookie Cutters...a great place to find any possible cookie cutter you need. Don't believe us? Need a cookie cutter for any possible breed of dog? Looking to teach your child a geography lesson? Get any state cookie cutter...or all 50! Or if you can't find that Little Mermaid cookie cutter your daughter is begging for haven't checked their Disney cookie cutter selection.

The Christmas set we're giving away this week includes a candy cane, a stocking, an angel, and a christmas tree. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment and answer the following question:

What is your favorite thing about Christmas?

Is it the music? the family time? the suspense? the giving? the cookies?
(for me it's our Christmas Eve traditions)

I have never been so excited about Christmas as I am this year. I love being a parent! I am planning so many fun Christmas-themed activities for my family, and I am so excited to see Brielle's face on Christmas morning. So, my favorite thing about Christmas this year is Brielle.

My favorite thing about Christmas this year is teaching Will about all the season has to offer. Christmas is magical at any age. We bought our first REAL Christmas tree last night and it is beautiful. It was so fun to bring it home, string it, drink hot chocolate, play Christmas music and see Will so excited about it.

The presents. Just kidding! Really, I just love hanging out with my whole family. All of my favorite people visiting and eating and making fun of each other. Couldn't think of a better way to spend a day!
