Some days it feels like my to-do list is a mile long.  The month of December gets crazy, doesn’t it?  Shopping, wrapping, cooking, mailing….  Every year we seem to want to do more and more.  Every year I feel the pressure to make the holiday perfect for my daughter.

And yet, what do you remember from your own childhood?  Most of us remember when our parents took the time to do something with us – reading a book, cooking, or watching a Christmas movie on television.

The people at Hallmark know holidays and families.  They have some of the best products to make time together with your family fun and memorable.  Last year, one of my daughter’s favorite memories was sitting with me to read “Jingle, All the Way” and listen to the adorable plush dog that came with it, respond to the story.  One of my favorite tv commercials is where the mom tucks the plush in among her child’s other toys.  Then as the mom reads the book, they hear “yip, yip!” coming from the group of toys.  It’s so adorable!  There is nothing like the expression on your child’s face when they first hear the plush toy respond.

This year, Hallmark introduced a friend for Jingle and her name is Bell.  Rosie is in love!  And the two plush dogs are not only adorable doubled, they are adorable squared!



I gave Bell to Rosie on Saturday, and she has been taking her everywhere with us!  On Sunday, we went out to breakfast and the server told us that her granddaughter loves Jingle.  Bell came with a CD of the story and we played it in the car.  It was so adorable to hear Bell react to the words in the story.

Don’t forget, Hallmark also has Recordable Storybooks to make your holidays special!  Two years ago, we recorded “The Night Before Christmas” with each of us reading a page – it will be a memory and a heirloom for my daughter to keep forever and remember our special Christmas Eves.

One lucky KLY reader is going to win their own Hallmark Interactive Story Buddy, Bell!  

Enter below and good luck!
