How is everyone doing on their Christmas preparations?  We had our big Sinterklaas Party last weekend and it was so fun! 

The kids all had a great time and we had a jolly old visitor come!

After he left we gave everyone their Christmas jammies and blankets and I gave each family one of these Christmas book angels!DIY Christmas book Angels Continue reading

Christmas Traditions

This is a re-post from a couple of years ago, but I think that it is a fun way to start off the season by sharing some of our favorite Christmas Traditions!

  This is a lengthy post, but you have all weekend…right? :) 

One of our Christmas traditions that we do is to donate blankets and quilts to one of our local hospitals.  We start this in November or even before.  I try to make a few quilted quilts and then we all tie several fringed fleece blankets. (click on link for tutorial on how to make these easy fleece blankets)  This year I did a few quilted quilts for our ward Humanitarian Project.

(I love this cute picture!!!  My grandson was only 2 1/2 years old in this picture, he is now almost 8 years old!)

How is everyone doing?  Are you all ready for the big Thanksgiving Holiday?

I am usually on Team Thanksgiving…but this year I decided to get my Christmas up early!!!  I had the help of several of my grandkids and kids!

So with all of their help, I was able to get everything all done in the decorating department in just 2 days!!!  I think I will recruit them every year from here on out.

Today, I have a fun idea that some of you might want to give a try.  They are Vintage Crochet Snowflakes!vintage crochet snowflakes Continue reading
