Christmas truly is the most wonderful time of year. One of
my most favorite family traditions we do in December is watch classic Christmas
movies. But first, we have to put on our coziest pajamas, make M&M’s® hot chocolate and cupcakes.
middle of our living room. Carson received a 6 person tent from my parents for
Christmas and it has taken up permanent residence in our house. Oh how I wish
all Friday nights could be like this! No hustle and bustle – just the three
amigos chillin’ in a tent…in the house.

While you are picking up supplies at Walmart and getting
milk to make the hot chocolate keep in mind that so many hungry children and
families in your community are going without essential nutrients because milk
is not typically donated to food banks. You can make a small donation and The Great American Milk Drive will deliver up to a gallon of
milk to a family in YOUR community. You can also purchase 2 bags of M&M’s® at Walmart (9.4 oz. or larger)
and milk will be donated to the drive.
More than 46.5 million Americans rely on food banks each
year, and milk is the most requested item. Yet food banks are only able to
provide 1 gallon of milk per person per year. These children are not receiving
the nutrients that need. You can visit milklife.com/give to learn about the
need for more nutritious food and how your donation can make a big impact.

I wish I had more chances to go camping as a child. I think it is never too late to catch up even as an adult. I love the idea of glamping. This is something my family can do!

Now I could love with glamping in my living room! AND that hot chocolate sounds yummy. It is nice to know that milk will be donated–there must be a way to get more fresh milk to those food banks then they currently get.
