What's your favorite family tradition?

My favorite family tradition is going to our church's Christmas Eve service, then attending the Point Clear Grand Hotel's Christmas Eve party.

We live in Fairhope Alabama which is also home to the Grand Hotel. The "hotel", as the locals call it, is also our country club.

I love watching my children run around the "hotel" with their friends on Christmas Eve with excitement and anticipation of Santa coming the next morning.

I love listening to the carolers in the hotel lobby and the popping of champagne bottles. I also love the beautifully displayed Christmas appetizers, and all the Merry Christmas wishes and hugs from neighbors and friends.

If you want to know more about the Grand Hotel then check out my blog post about our "hotel."

What's the most challenging thing about being both a blogger and a mom?

The most challenging thing about being a blogger and a mom is working out of the house.

My computer station actually resides in the kitchen which is the world's dumbest place for it to be. You will usually find 3 children surrounding me at my computer while I am trying to write for my blog.

I love them all dearly, but they NEVER give a moment of silence or solitude to write.

Thus, I am blaming them for any grammatical errors you find on my blog. Just saying :)

What's the most rewarding thing about being a mom?

The most rewarding thing about being a mom is that I love my children and they love me.

That is all a mother needs right? Just love.
