DollyWood's DreamMore Resort

 We rang in the new year of 2016 in the smoky mountains.  We stayed at Dollywood's DreamMore resort which had been in operation for a few months at that time.  Everything was decorated beautifully for Christmas. The resort has a spa and restaurant which we did not use but we did take advantage of the Starbucks every morning.  They have a trolley bus that transports you right to a front gate at Dollywood park.  It leaves about every 15 minutes. If you plan to visit Dollywood this is a very convenient way to do it. They also offer a fast pass for rides included in your package of staying at the resort and we received a one day free visit to Dollywood. I'm not sure if they still offer this but it was a great deal for our family.  At night you can buy a s'mores pack and use the fire pits around the pool area to make them. They have a gorgeous indoor pool to go along with the outdoor pool and they offer a playground and splash pad for kids.

Gift Wrapping Station

Wrapping presents is one part of Christmas I do not enjoy.  However, my gift wrapping station makes it a lot easier and less stressful. I have the Martha Stuart gift wrapping station from Home Decorators. The link is here..http://www.homedecorators.com/p/martha-stewart-living-craft-space-storage-cabinet/. The gift wrap hutch along with the cabinet makes a great way to store, use and display your favorite wrapping paper.  I absolutely love it.  The table and chair I have setup beside it also helps make gift wrapping easier.
