Three Kings Day or El Día de Los Reyes is on January 6th and this year we wanted to make sure to have a few gifts to celebrate the day. Sammy got a lot of gifts for Christmas but Día de Los Reyes is part of the holiday season and her dad and I want to make sure that this holiday is something she grows up knowing about and celebrating. Día de Los Reyes is part of our culture, which doesn't necessarily have to do with religion for us, it is more about a tradition that comes from our country and heritage, that we want to pass to her.
For our gifts we decided to make a family day out of it and headed out to JCPenney. Holiday shopping is one of the best parts of the entire holiday season for me. I know how crazy the stores get and how insanely tired it leaves you, but I would not miss out on those long hours with the family shopping for goodies and sitting down for a good meal at the end. It's part of the fun, so I enjoy it.
Right now you can score some amazing deals at JCPenney and there was no shortage of gift ideas for the whole family. A favorite item that we had to pick up were these iHome Color Changing Heaphones for Sammy. She got her first cell phone for Christmas and has been using her cheapie headphones from last year, so this will be an amazing upgrade for her!
My little girl is going to love these iHome Color Changing Heaphones to go with her new phone. I know that a phone sounds like too much for a child her age, but she is such a good kid, she does so well in school and she is the best aunt ever to all of her sister's kids. She deserves it.
On Three Kings Day we always have the family over to enjoy some Rosca de Reyes with cafecito or chocolate caliente, but since there are so many kids we always have to bake a lot of extra goodies. That's why Adrian was so excited to find so many items to help us with the entertaining portion of the day, one of the must-buy items was this Cooks 5-piece Non Stick Bakeware Set.
Adrian does the bulk of cooking and baking in our house so he is the one that gets excited about cookware. I get excited by thinking of all the stuff he is going to make: fresh cinnamon rolls, chocolate chip cookies or maybe a banana nut bread? For sure we will be having some empanadas on Three Kings Day, that alone is reason to celebrate. And this set was only $25!
Three Kings Day is January 6th and JCPenney has gifts and entertainment items for the whole family. Make a trip down and pick out a few goodies for each person or make a family day of it like we did. Sammy's gift has been wrapped and is awaiting for her to open it on Wednesday with the rest of the kids. I know she is going to love her new headhones!
