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!

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

He Is The Gift-video

Merry Christmas Everyone!  

Just wanted to share a quick video…He Is The Gift.

This is from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  It is a couple of years old, but I could watch it again and again!  Hope you enjoy it too!

May we all remember the reason for the season.   Share your love and yourself with others and make this a Christmas to remember!

Love you all and hope that your holidays are filled with peace, love and family.

I know that there are many out there that do not find joy in the holidays.  I hope that you can find peace in your heart and that you will let the true meaning of Christmas fill the empty spots.  The Savior is the  reason we have so much to celebrate.  

He is the Gift!

Thanks for Visiting.  Merry Christmas to all!
