Baby's First Christmas with Babies"R"Us Giveaway!




This year for Baby's First Christmas, Babies"R"Us is featuring in store events and online giveaways. 

Have you celebrated a Baby's First Christmas? Or is this your first?

Looking back I definitely remember both my kids first Christmas'. We don't have much family, so they were nice and relaxed. We created our own memories and traditions and it's just a blast experiencing a first. 
Although this year won't be a First Christmas for us (at least I'm hoping not as I'm due 1/14), I'm hoping to make some new memories and traditions in our new home!

Babies"R"Us is having in store events on Saturdays at your local store where you can meet new moms in your neighborhood. Just call your store and ask all about it!

On December 4th they are having a Twitter party all about Baby's 1st Christmas. It's from 8-9pm EST use hashtag #BRUChristmas for a chance to win Babies"R"Us gift cards. 

But right here you have a chance to win a $50 Babies"R"Us gift card right now :)

For my son's first Christmas, he was only 1.5 months old, so we took it easy on gifts, and just spent a lot of time with family and friends. His big present that year was a beautiful ornament for the tree... and I've continued the tradition. Now every year I get him an ornament for the tree. :)
Would love this gift card to use for toys for my now 4 year old big boy! :)

We have a fondue, play charades, listen to carols and the kids roast marshmallows in the fireplace. I am sure our new little one will be well on his way to being spoiled with love. Of course, Santa will be coming to everyone. Thank you for the super giveaway opportunity. Keep up the terrific blogging.
