5 Christmas Books without Santa Claus

Disclosure:  This is a sponsored post

My husband and I have always shared stories of Santa Claus with our kids but we have some friends who haven't.  Finding Christmas books where Santa isn't the featured character can be quite a challenge as so many children's Christmas books feature Santa as a central character.

If you are looking for a children's Christmas book sans Santa, here are a few books worth checking out.

The Snow Angel
Two little mice are playing in the snow one Christmas morning when they see an angel. Soaring through the sky, with sunshine gleaming on its wings, it is magical. But as they watch, the angel flutters and tumbles to the ground. Is there anything the mice can do to save the lost and lonely angel before it is too late?

The Mitten
The bestselling modern classic, in an oversized board book edition perfect for sharing.
When Nicki drops his white mitten in the snow, he goes on without realizing that it is missing.

One by one, woodland animals find it and crawl in; first, a curious mole, then a rabbit, a badger and others, each one larger than the last.



Holly and Ivy
a little orphan girl named Ivy wishes for a doll to hold and a family to love her at Christmas, and of a Christmas doll named Holly who wishes for a child to own her,



Who Built the Stable?
Who built the stable where Jesus lay? Multiple Coretta Scott King Award-winner Ashley Bryan has a very good idea in this beautiful and moving new layer to the nativity story.



And for the little ones, be sure to check out My Christmas ABC's from Tommy Nelson Books.









Celebrate Christmas from A to Z with this glitter-tastic alphabet book! My Christmas ABCs highlights favorite parts of the holiday season, from the angel at the tippy-top of the tree to the ZZZs you'll need after a blessed Christmas Day! Features glitter on every spread.

We received this book from Tommy Nelson Books as we are Booklook Bloggers.

Your family will love the festive charm of this darling holiday board book. This is the perfect way to celebrate the fun parts of Christmastime while helping your toddlers and preschoolers master their ABCs. With glitter on every page, this eye-catching book will make your little ones ooh and ahh as they enjoy the blessings of the season:

C is for crunchy candy canes with stripes of red and white.


J is for Jesus, God's Son who was born on Christmas Day.

L is for the lights that give home a twinkly glow.

T is for the Christmas tree that stands so tall and green.

Curl up by the Christmas tree as you and your little ones spell out what makes the season so very merry in My Christmas ABCs.

There are no references to Santa Claus in any of these books.

RAIN RAIN GO AWAY! GIVEAWAY HOP

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.  

There are some really great prizes up for grabs and add some new blogs to your reading list plus your chance to win a $40 Visa eGift Card.  Why $40 you ask.  Well that's because I-40 is the interstate we typically travel to most of our Spring Break destinations.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…

Life is a Beach Giveaway Hop

Spring is in full swing.  The birds are singin'.  The pollen is falling and temps are FINALLY warming up.  So what better time time to start planning our Summer getaways.

This year - as always - we are beach bound.  It's one of our fave places to visit given we only get to the beach once or twice a year.  

Last year's visit to Cozumel was one for the record books. We stopped by this little restaurant and dined on grilled shrimp in a cabana right on the beach.  
'Ohana also has a line of tequilas in flavors I had never seen before.  Tropical flavors such as coconut, mango and pina colada.  Hubby and I tried the 'Ohana peanut butter tequila.  The owner said folks either love it or hate it... we LOVED it!!!
As I was sipping all I could think of was how good this peanut butter tequila would taste as a baste on my tequila wings.  It would be like a tequila satay wings type dish.
