    Our favorite traditions include cutting down a tree at Farmers Brown every year, making Xmas cookies, donating food to shelter and giving our old coats to kids in need. We love dressing in our pjs, grabbing egg nog shakes and driving around to see Xmas lights 🙂

  • Kim

    Amazing giveaway! Thank you for the opportunity! My favorite wintery thing is a new one since we just moved. I LOVE cuddling by the fireplace with a hot fire blazing. And if course Christmas shopping, cocoa, having my preschooler ask questions about Santa that are hard to come up with an answer for, having only the Christmas tree lights on at night, family gathering and people in general being more kind and joyous 🙂

  • Sarah

    How fun! My girls have been wanting to go on a train. So many Christmas activities but one of our favorites is celebrating Swedish St. Lucias day on December 13th. A special holiday tradition that reminds us Christmas is close!

  • Brooke Wyles

    I love making Christmas cookies with my children! We turn on Bing Crosby, make a yummy hot drink and just enjoy eachother! We also love making Christmas houses from homemade templates. We decorate them and cut out a hole in the back so they can “light up” on the tree. Another fun tradition that is special to my husband and I is we stay up really late Christmas Eve and make a Dutch Apple pie together for our Christmas breakfast. Christmas is my favorite time of the year!

  • Adrienne

    Some of my favorite things to do during the holidays were thrown together in the last couple years as we filled our time together since we had moved hours away from both of our families. Lots of exploring during the holiday breaks, loads of baking (also to help heat the house for us California babies!) And every time the snow hits Daddy stays home with us and we play as long as we can feel our fingers and rush home to get warm. Every year we drive around and see the lights and decorations regardless of where we are. This year we have grandma and grandpa to help us fill the holidays with new PNW adventures!

  • Tiffany LaBrooy

    We are moving to WA this month and cannot wait to begin new holiday traditions there!! Your blog inspires me so much. Thank you!

  • Allison Ohagan

    We are so excited to ride the polar express this year. Our son will be 20 months in December and we love teaching him Christmas traditions that have come from both my husband and my family. Some of our traditions for Christmas include a new Christmas book each year to read of Christmas Eve. Another tradition we do is put bears (stuffed animals) under the tree instead of presents.

  • Taylor

    I love going a cutting down our Christmas tree and then decorating it with Christmas music on!! Love everything Christmas 🙂

  • Brittin

    One of my favorite traditions Is driving around as a family looking at Christmas lights. I look forward to the family time this time of year. Money is usually tight in the winter because it’s my husband’s slow season so we focus more on experiences than presents.

  • Andrea sherman

    We love to do community activities and lights of Christmas! We make treats and gingerbread houses! I hope for snow this year! We also watch all the Christmas movies!

  • Jennifer Homestead

    The whole family always gets together on Christmas Eve for homemade food and to exchange gifts. This is my first year in over 10 not working retail and I am so excited to be able to spend more time with family and our kids and not stress about going to work afterwards.

  • Chrisdee

    What a fun giveaway. We have been trying to go to this for a few years now and our daughter finally likes the car long enough to make the journey to do something like this!

  • Sarah Cookston

    One simple tradition we have is using a ribbon at the top of the stairs to let the kids know they can’t come down during the night. In the morning we have a big “ribbon cutting” ceremony and the kids go rushing downstairs. It’s not uncommon to find them sitting by the ribbon, bubbling over with excitement, waiting for “the cutting”.

  • Molly Hunt

    One of our favorite traditions is going to the tree farm in advance and picking out and decorating our tree before we actually take it home. And caroling. We love caroling.

  • Amy Hampton

    I love this idea! We have never been but I’m sure the boys would love it. We usually travel to Leavenworth inDecember to see the lights and play in the snow!

  • Monica Close

    We love Leavenworth and my daughter is coming from Virginia and it would be wonderful to be able to do this.

  • Sally Kanehen

    I look forward to Christmas music all day every day, baking treats with my kids, and hoping for snow to play in!!!

  • Chelsey Ras

    Wow this is an awesome giveaway! It looks like a winter wonderland! We love bundling up and drinking cocoa and enjoying the winter scenery!

  • Melissa

    I love going out with the family and picking out that perfect tree! Every year is better as the kids get a little bit older and can participate a little bit more!

  • Yvonne Christenson

    We will be a new family of 4 come mid December. After moving around about 12 times in the past 3 years, we finally bought our first house as a family in August. It’s been hard to establish Christmas traditions but since our first daughter was born in 2013, her grandpa made sure she watched The Polar Express (we read it to her) and gave her a little bell each year. That’s our only tradition we have had so far but now that we’re settled in our new home and our daughter is 3, we are excited to start making our own traditions with baking Christmas cookies as a priority. 😉

  • Nell

    We love seeing the train village at Seattle center and riding the tram downtown to the carousel and Macy’s santa.

  • Sylvia

    With three littles, Christmas seems to get better each year. We love baking cookies for neighbors and constantly hope for snow. A train ride would be fun to add :). Thanks for your blog – this year I’m asking for camping gear so we can get out next summer. Love your posts with hikes and accomplishment!

  • Kaylie Amundson

    Spending time with family is the best tradition we have. My sisters birthday on the 23rd. We spend all day at Grandmas on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day is spent with our immediate family. We listen to John Denver and the Muppets and open gifts by the tree.

  • Stephanie Kraft

    Our favorite traditions are being made now! Our children are still little so we are just beginning new traditions. We have a special “family oriented” gift from our elf in the shelf that helps us spend time together as a family, especially since we move around the country with my husband’s job. This will be our second year doing this and this giveaway is a perfect example!

  • Kristie Hill

    One of my favorite traditions started when my son was one year old. We like to turn off all the lights except the Christmas tree, turn on some Christmas music and have a dance party. Every day in December. It’s fabulous and simple and fun.

  • William Longmire

    I haven’t done the Polar Express excursion yet but I’ve been on others and Mt. Rainier Railroad never disappoints!

  • Elizabeth Dezeeuw

    Our favorite traditions used to include spending a day st StoneyRidge Farm- drinking hot cocoa, riding in the wagon, & picking a Christmas Tree, & of course, baking “Santa’s” cookies on Christmas Eve in our newly-opened Christmas jammies & reading the original Christmas Story, the birth of Jesus.

  • Jess

    Our traditions include hiding a glass pickle ornament in the Christmas tree. We also have a Danish elf, or nisse, that brings treats, small gifts, and creates mischief throughout the month of December. On Christmas Day, we always pile into the car and visit Snoqualmie Falls, rain or shine, even if it’s just for a few windy misty minutes. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  • Kaily

    The holidays are filled with opportunities to make memories with family. My kids are still young so we are developing new traditions each year. Something that never changes is Christmas morning and that time together seeing the excitment on the kids faces listening to Christmas music and making breakfast as a family. This train ride has been on our list to do with the boys, what a fun giveaway thanks for this opportunity!

  • Cassidy Bolick

    This looks so magical!! One of my favorite family traditions is watching the lighting of Leavenworth! Another is making Lebkuchen cookies! I am so looking forward to all the family time and eating in November and December!

  • Kristina

    I’ve always wanted to do this!!! It looks like so much fun! We love getting a live Christmas tree each year. With a small living space we now get a living Christmas tree instead of cutting one, and plant it after the holidays. We also love making Christmas cookies, going to Lights of Christmas and reading a Christmas book each night during the advent season :).

  • Heidi

    We love to hang homemade paper snowflakes with our kids as early in November as we dare to ring in the start of the Christmas season. We have a homemade advent calendar with a little copper star that our kids get to take turns moving from one pocket to the next, and each night my husband and I set the star up with two little bendy elf ornaments in all sorts of places for the kids to find each morning (sort of like elf on the shelf, only not quite). Another of our favorite traditions regarding gift-giving includes taking our four children (ages 5 and under) to the toy store to look for ideas of what they want to give each other and make a list (my husband and I scout it out kid-free a few days beforehand to minimize overwhelm and meltdowns lol). When we get home, we make a list of jobs they can do to earn money to save up for their gift idea, and then later return to the store with their hard-earned money, let them secretly get the item they want to give, and purchase it themselves. They love feeling so important and grown-up, and the gift has so much more meaning to them.

    • Heidi

      I almost forgot! We also pull out our special Christmas books and wrap them in brown paper and fancy ribbons and put them under the tree, and every few days the kids get to choose one to open up and read and then add to the bookshelf to enjoy for the rest of the season 🙂
