This post is an entry for Britmums #oreocookiequest sponsored by Oreo.
Oreo is celebrating The Great Oreo Cookie Quest promotion on packs now, which means anyone can pick up a pack and be in with a chance to win awesome prizes, including a once in a lifetime trip to California – can I get a HELL YEAH!
I am taking part with my very own cookie quest to support The Great Oreo Cookie Quest and what better way than to use our snow days (I mean who hasn’t had any?!) to have fun and throw in a bit of Oreo cookie eating into the mix! Of course! This challenge is all about family time and spending it together, having fun and capturing them moments.
My 7 year old son B loves the snow and is out the back door as soon as a snowflake falls…literally! Sometimes the kids are the most happiest when it comes to simplicity. Take away the technical stuff, the effort, the distractions.
My son was the most happiest when being out in the fresh air, burning some energy and taking some time out from his siblings!!! Even better, the taste of an Oreo in the snow was a fun experience – who wouldn’t love being out in the white stuff and stuffing your face with a chocolate Oreo cookie?!
Family time is so important, whether it be a family day out, snuggling down to watch a film at home or simply watching your children play. Taking away the many distractions children have nowadays, its refreshing to see that children can be happy with the simple things in life, like just having a run and a play in the garden in the snow.
Its times like these we need to sit back and appreciate these moments of happiness presented by the likes of a snow day and no school – hurrah for the kids! Don’t get me wrong, B loves is Xbox and Wii U, but I much prefer capturing these moments of happiness and see the delight on his face from the simple things in life – making footprints in the snow.
Thanks for reading!
Hi and welcome to The Willow Tree. I’m Michelle, also known as Shel and I am a mama to three beautiful crazy kids – I have two handsome boys and a wild and wonderful girl.
I really wanted a concrete place to share my thoughts, ideas and my ups and downs on family life, sharing our family adventures and love for fashion. I’d love for it to be a community of support and advice for others too.
I chat everything from Disney, parenting hacks to the latest haul from Primark! I love going on family breaks and holidays and love to document these times of creating special memories.
