graco prize day2 Baby Gizmo 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway   Day 2

Since one of the top registry items is a Pack ‘n Play, we decided that we would help one lucky mama (or dada!) out with a new Graco Pack ‘n Play Playard with Reversible Napper and Changer!

Moms have spoken and have made our Pack ‘N Play with Newborn Napper the No.1 playard in the market. Now we bring you the comfort of this napper along with the convenience of a changer all-in-one. Beautifully-styled, soft fabric cuddles baby for naps while a wipe-clean fabric resists messes for changes. This is the only playard designed to meet your child’s needs as he grows from a newborn to an infant to a toddler.

While that is a great prize all by itself, we couldn’t stop there today. We had to throw in our favorite sound machines, the Graco Sweet Slumber Sound Machine! If you haven’t seen our Baby Gizmo Video on this magical nursery device, you can watch it here: Baby Gizmo Graco Sweet Slumber Sound Machine Review

    My favorite tradition is one I started about 4 years ago. I make stockings for everyone, they are different colors or patterns.

    I love spending time with my little ones. To me Christmas is about being with family and growing up I never had a Christmas so its really important for me to make sure that my little girls get everything that they deserve. Seeing the looks on their faces when the tree is put together, when the lights are up and when everything is so bright truly makes their eyes glisten. Watching them open up their presents is priceless on its own. I love being able to start my own family tradition and I really hope that it will stick forever and my kids will enjoy it every year.

  140. Jessica Eyer says

    My favorite thing to do during the holidays is to make Banana Oatmeal cookies and Spritz cookies with the kids, just like my Mom used to do with my brother and I. It brings back such great memories of our childhood before things went bad for awhile.
