Nancy Shares Family Christmas Traditions!

Nancy O’Dell Shares Family Christmas Traditions You Can Start Now

I don't know if you're like I am, but I'm always trying to come up with things this time of the year that my family will remember forever. And it seems as if I'm asked almost daily during the holiday season, "Does your family have any holiday traditions?" You bet we do! 

I look at family Christmas traditions the same way I view photo albums and scrapbooks. I believe those memories are so very important. I once interviewed a child psychologist about the importance of family memories and he verified what I've always thought--that traditions create good feelings and special moments to remember. Traditions help parents pass on values to children. Traditions bridge generations and give family members a sense of belonging and security. Bottom line: they are as much a part of the holiday as Jingle Bells and Rudolph.

I make sure my family participates in traditions from years past, and we create a new one every season. Most importantly, I always try to come up with an end goal that we want the new tradition to help us accomplish. For example, to teach my kids about helping others or to strengthen the family bond. One tradition we started last year was to create an annual family recipe book. We have every person who comes over for Christmas make a dish. That person then writes their recipe down in their own handwriting. We compile those recipes in an album along with photos of the person who cooked it. Then we make multiple copies of the book. I've even had it printed and gave the compiled book as a gift to every family member the next year. 

I came up with the idea for a recipe book because I already had my mom's famous biscuit recipe written down in her handwriting. She had scribbled it down for me to save since it was her tradition, and I pulled it out one Christmas to make them. What a great feeling it was to see her writing, and remember making those biscuits with her, as I had so many times as a little girl. It gave me this nice sense of comfort and a feeling that my mom, who has passed away, was with us in a way.   

Traditions can be simple or complicated, take time or no time at all. Here are some of my ideas to help make your holiday special:

  • For every Friday in December, make it family game night.
  • Read a holiday story to your child the 12 days before Christmas in front of the Christmas tree**. 
  • Make a calendar of all the holiday specials airing on TV and make an appointment with your loved one to watch them. Frosty the Snowman never gets old.
  • Start a canned food drive in your neighborhood, then donate to a food bank.
  • Every night in December leading up to Christmas, add a figure to the manger scene while reading a part of the Christmas story.
  • Deliver treats to service members who will be working Christmas hours, like those at the fire department, the police department or the hospital. 
  • Instead of spring cleaning, make it holiday cleaning. Clean out your closest and then donate to a homeless shelter. 
  • As a family, make the Christmas card you send out very special by having each family member share what they are thankful for and their favorite memory from the year. 

These are just a few ideas. Come up with ones which work for your family, but make it a tradition to make traditions!

Nancy Debuts "Little Ashby: Star Reporter" Book!

Entertainment Tonight host and published author, Nancy O’Dell, created an educational app for children and their parents called Little Ashby: Star Reporter. It is a fun app that is available in the iTunes store, with new adventures being added for children to learn while still having fun! Little Ashby: Star Reporter is now available in a paperback version – perfect as a stocking stuffer – and available on Amazon for $8.99.

“I am so excited about The Little Ashby: Star Reporter book being out for the holidays!” Nancy tells Celebrity Baby Scoop. “It debuted as an iTunes app last season and kids responded so well, we turned it into a book.”

The mom-of-three says it’s the perfect gift this holiday season.

“It makes for a great child gift because it’s a fun, adventurous holiday story with educational facts mixed in and it also teaches kids morals and compassion as well,” Nancy shares. “Storytelling is what I do every day for a living on Entertainment Tonight. And I always say I love being a reporter because I learn so much from the various places and people I cover.”

She adds: “I want kids to have that same opportunity to travel the world while learning so much in the process. Thus, the book is about a little girl reporter and her FUNtastic crew with her first assignment going to the North Pole, interview Santa Claus, and come back with the story of what the holiday spirit is all about. When I asked my daughter what I should name the little reporter, she said, ‘Duh…Ashby!,’ which is her name, of course [laughs].”

As for her 6-year-old daughter Ashby‘s Christmas wish-list, it seems mom has already found the perfect gift.

“As a way of learning addition and subtraction in school, her class is using coins. So Ashby told me she wants a piggy bank for Christmas to keep those coins safe,” Nancy explains. “She loves ladybugs and I found a website called Child To Cherish that has the most adorable hand-painted piggy bank with a ladybug on it.”

And it sounds like Santa’s elves will be busy crafting up Ashby’s favorite black boots again this year.

“Ashby is quite the fashionista these days,” Nancy adds. “She is very picky with her clothes — how did that start so early? She finds something she really likes and goes crazy wearing it over and over again, until it is worn out. There is this pair of adorable pediped black boots which she loves (the Flex Naomi). Fortunately they are very comfortable, which is a criteria for her as well. She told me, ‘I would like Santa to bring me another pair. I am sure he has more than one pair of those same boots he wears all the time too, so he will understand!’ ”

She adds: “Ashby loves unicorns! But she doesn’t love the dark, so she wants the Unicorn Flashlight Friend. What a clever creation!”

Not to mention, her daughter is “very tech savvy” at her tender age!

“And you are not gonna believe this one!” Nancy continues. “We were sitting in a school morning assembly the other day when Ashby leaned over to me and said, ‘Mama, I want a 5S for Christmas.’ To which I replied, ‘A what?’ in disbelief. She said, ‘You know, a 5S — the iPhone.’ She’s only 6-years-old! How does she even know the latest model? She is very tech savvy at such a young age. She must get it from her dad. He’s a technology executive.”

Nancy O'Dell Hosts "A Hollywood Christmas at the Grove!"

Stars Dish Holiday Plans at Festive Tree Lighting

November 18, 2013

Some of music's brightest stars joined ET's Nancy O'Dell last night to officially kick off the holiday season in Los Angeles with a tree-lighting ceremony featuring festive performances by Toni Braxton, Mary J. Blige, Jewel and more!

Our cameras were there to capture highlights from the 11th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Spectacular at The Grove shopping center and we also asked the stars to share their holiday plans and gift wishes for the upcoming holiday season.

PICS: Adorable Tots: Celebs and Their Cute Kids!

I'm going to be home on Christmas, opening some gifts and gaining a few pounds -- that part's going to be fun," Braxton revealed. The singer was also asked if she's expecting anything special this year under the tree. "I'm always partial to diamonds," she replied. "But I don't have a boyfriend, I'm single -- newly divorced -- but I can wish!" 

Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds -- with whom Braxton performed a duet of the holiday favorite of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas -- appeared with her on the red carpet and vowed to do what he could to help fulfill her holiday wish. "I'm trying to find her a diamond guy," he joked.

Blige -- who recently released her first-ever Christmas album and performed My Favorite Things at the ceremony -- said she's planning a low-key holiday. "My Christmas plans would be to be home, resting."

Nancy Goes Inside Oprah Winfrey's Personal Auction!Nancy Goes Inside Oprah Winfrey's Personal Auction!

CBS NEWS November 1, 2013, 4:40 PM

Inside Oprah Winfrey's personal auction

(CBS News) Oprah Winfrey is cleaning house big time. On Saturday, she's auctioning off everything from gilded frames to chandeliers to electric bikes.

"Entertainment Tonight" host Nancy O'Dell went to see Oprah near her California home on Thursday. O'Dell said on "CBS This Morning" there's lots of excitement surrounding the auction, with online bids pouring in from as far away as India and Australia.

Oprah is in the midst of a big remodel on her California estate, which is what prompted her to re-evaluate what stays and what goes.

Three tents loaded with Oprah's personal belongings are on display at the polo grounds in Santa Barbara.

Winfrey said of the auction, "It is my idea of a yard sale, and just like everybody, you start accumulating stuff. I've been accumulating things since 1985. It's just too much stuff, and I write about it a lot in the magazine, we talk about de-cluttering and I realize I need to de-clutter my own life."

She said it's very freeing. "I am downsizing," Winfrey said.

Winfrey has pulled personal treasures from her homes in Hawaii, Indiana and Montecito, Calif., and there's a story behind every item. A 19th century doll is expected to sell between $5,000 and $8,000.

Winfrey's extensive doll collection includes hundreds of dolls. She said, "I'm getting rid of some of the dolls because when people come to stay with me, they say that they get scared with all of the dolls, so you wake up and there's like 12 dolls looking at you. It's like (and) Alfred Hitchcock thing."

Winfrey said she's trying hard to not be attached to things. She said, "I'm trying to live the life that I talk about, like not letting things define you, but it's hard."

One of the hardest things to let go is a 19th century set of library stairs. Winfrey said, "You know I love books, and I love library, and I have a library, so I saw this, I was out, I was in, I think I was in London and bought (these stairs). And then it's one of those things you buy in a moment of impulse, and then it doesn't fit the room so it never fit."

Just the fact that these were some of Winfrey's favorite things adds value to the price. A steamer trunk, which immigrants used when coming to America, is now bidding at close to $1,000, simply because Oprah stored her sweaters inside.

Winfrey loves boxes. She's collected them from all over the world. One from London dates back to the 1840s, and converts into a ship captain's desk. It was housed at her Montecito estate.

Some items are expected to fetch up to $50,000, including a Louis XVI desk -- behind which her long time boyfriend Stedman Graham used to write.

Auctioneer Frank Kaminski told O'Dell a Louis XVI chest of drawers will be the auction's most expensive sale. Kaminski said he had to "twist (Winfrey's) arm to get her to part with it."

The chest of drawers, Kaminski noted, is made of king wood and various other inlays. He added, "It has the original marble top. But it's signed Boudan."

He expects the drawers to sell for $30,000 to $50,000.

Also up for sale is a five-feet-tall autographed Oprah Vogue cover.

Winfrey wants everyone to know they can bid on her items online. The proceeds from the auction benefit her Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa, which she founded in 2007. To participate, pre-registration is available online atKaminskiAuctions.com.

Winfrey said, "As you grow into yourself, you just want what's comfortable for you, so when you come to see me in a year from now, I'm gonna have a house that feels like pajamas."

O'Dell remarked, "I like that, I'm waiting for my dinner invitation over at that house now."

Winfrey said, "You will get it, but you have to wear your pajamas."

O'Dell replied, "I will gladly wear my pajamas. Glad to do it."

To participate in the auction, pre-registration is available at KaminskiAuctions.com.

Nancy's Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas!

Nancy O’Dell Shares Four Great Last-Minute Halloween Costume Ideas for Kids

Yikes! Halloween is hours away. For whatever reason you may find yourself a little late on the draw for your child’s Halloween costume, or perhaps they want something different than what they’ve been wearing to school for the last week, here are four easy-to-put-together, DIY Halloween costumes for your little ones. 

1. A simple and traditional idea is to dress your little cutie as a pirate. All it takes is some colorful, solid leggings, and an oversized shirt. A sash or belt is the key ingredient to a pirate costume (Dad's neckties work wonders in these instances!). Then add an eye patch and bandana. Ahoy, matey!
2. There's a lot you can do with simple packaging tape. For a quick and cute costume, dress your child in black pants or leggings and a black T-shirt. Then use white packaging tape to add the skeleton bones! Or to transform your child into a superhero, dress him in a colorful sweatsuit. Then display his initial in colorful tape, and add a couple of stripes around the legs and arms. A towel will do the trick for the cape. Voila, you have a little superhero!
3. A really easy last-minute costume for either a boy or girl is a pumpkin face. Paint your child's face orange. Then outline the eyes and nose in triangular shapes and color them in black (or you can be even more creative with color). For the pumpkin mouth, draw a zig-zag shape and color that in as well. Finally, put a few green leaves at the top of your child's head and dress them in black. How simple is that?
4. For your little girl, a witch is always a popular idea. You can find a witch's hat in any Halloween costume shop.  At home, paint your child's face as scary or as cute as you like. Then dress her in a black top and black tights. To make the costume uber-adorable, finish it off with a little black tutu.
