Christmas is my favorite time of year. I love Christmas decorations and how beautiful they make my home. I also enjoy the music, the lights, and of course all the goodies. I spend a lot of time baking with my kids around the holidays. Call me crazy, but I love snow and how it makes everything so beautiful. I love to play outside in the snow with my kids.
On Christmas Eve we get to spend time with the whole family, some of whom we only see once a year. Then it’s off to bed in new pajamas to wait for Santa. Christmas morning is the only day of the year when I’m excited to see my kids sneaking into my room at 4 am to inform me that Santa has come and asking if I could please get up. Christmas to me is spending time with the ones I love and making memories together.
Santa’s Cookies Body Butter is easy to make and smells like cookies. With over 24 hours of super-rich hydration, this deeply nourishing whipped body butter leaves your skin feeling moisturized and replenished. It also makes a great gift for Christmas, if you can give it away after smelling it.
