My boys are pretty excited that there are only 3 (t h r e e !!!) more sleeps till Christmas. This year was a pretty special one as we cut down our very first Christmas tree, made treats for our friends, made our own wrapping paper and got to spend a couple days in the mountains with snow (which was Cruz very first time really playing in all that white powder). It’s been fun and we have made loads of memories!
One thing we love to do every year as a family is to cook a traditional Brazilian meal for our Christmas dinner. This includes feijoada (brazilian beans), rice, churrasco (brazilian meat), salad with palm hearts and traditional potato salad! My boys enjoy helping me cook, learning about Brazil and learning new words in portuguese! It’s a great way to engage our boys in their Brazilian heritage!
But one of my most favorite parts of winter is being able to wear warm sweaters, fuzzy hats and boots! This year we partnered with Gap Kids to show some of our favorite items for boys! Each of my children (except Cruz) picked out what they thought best represented their own style!
Here is what they picked!
