One of our favorite family Christmas traditions is to go out one night and look at everyone's Christmas lights. There are some gorgeous displays here---some have even been set to music. My favorites, however, are the simple ones put up by a loving husband to brighten up his family home. With our big family, any outing is a big deal that requires some extra planning. I love being able to stop off at the cafe at Sam's Club and grab a couple of Family Pizza Combos. It makes nights like these simpler on me so I don't stress about dinner after our fun night out.
The lights on the Bentonville Square are one of our favorite attractions during this season. A couple weeks ago, we attended the lighting of the square and downtown Christmas tree. Then we watched an ice skating show featuring local talents. It's so great to spend time with our community---the spirit of family, friendship, and love is definitely in the air surrounding the Bentonville Square!
Last Friday night, the teens had a homeschool Christmas party so we stopped off to get photos at the Square and check out the lights display again. It never gets old!
Our family loves this Family Pizza Combo on a busy night. For $13.98, we can pick up a 16 inch pizza, a tray of cheesy breadsticks with marinara, six chocolate chip cookies, and a 2 liter of Coca-Cola. Two combos is enough for all of us and they bake them to order so they're hot and fresh in about 15 minutes.
You can find the Family Pizza Combo at the Sam's Club cafe. This simple, affordable and convenient dinner plan will satisfy your whole family, leaving you lots of time to enjoy celebrating the Christmas season!
I look forward to the fall and winter holidays every year and it's hard to watch them fly by. The older the kids get, the busier we get and I feel like I'm always rearranging our schedule to try and fit everything in peacefully. One thing that really helps me is to have a few cheats---like my table setting basket.
Throughout the year, I save the extra paper plates, cups, and tablecloths from the kids' birthday parties and pull them out during the holidays to use on busy evenings. I buy a pretty Christmasy set of plates and napkins to keep in the front of the basket and put the non-Christmasy stuff in the back. I start out with everything that is close to looking holiday-themed, but after awhile we find ourselves pulling out the camo plates and polka dot napkins. The Christmasy things stay in front until Christmas day and then we use them for our dessert.
I've always got an extra plastic tablecloth or two so I make sure to include one in the basket. It's amazing how a tablecloth can bring some specialness to a family meal. Assorted plastic tableware is stored inside whatever throwaway cups I have on hand to keep my basket tidy.
I hope this simple idea helps you make some fun family memories with less stress. The holidays are all about celebrating family and friends so let's make it a goal to do it peacefully! It's ok to have a few cheats if the end result is a special time to remember.
Make sure to check out the Family Pizza Combo at Sam's Club and let me know what holiday hacks you use to give your family a less stressed holiday season.
