We had our annual Sinterklaas party last night and boy am I tired this morning! It was a lot of fun…but a lot of work! We celebrate Sinterklaas day because my oldest son served a mission for the church in the Netherlands. I have always loved the idea of welcoming in the Christmas Season with Santa! We then celebrate the spiritual side of Christmas on Christmas Eve. Continue reading

Last week I was invited to a SNAP event for bloggers that was held at the American Crafts Warehouse Sale! I was so excited to go that I almost went a week early! My friend had to tell me that it was not for another week! :)

If you have any scrapbook lovers on your Christmas list, this would be the perfect place to find all kinds of goodies to fill that need!
I was able to really stock up on some fun items…look at all of this goodness! Continue reading
I thought that I would kick off the Christmas season again this year with my most favorite Christmas story and tradition! We have been doing this tradition in our home for several years now and I always look forward to it more than anything else that we do! But even if you do not do this tradition in your home…it is a great story to start of your holiday season and get you in the true meaning of Christmas!
We have a tradition in our home that we started a few years ago. My children are all grown and married, and every year we would go through this little ritual– They would say, “Mom, what do you and dad want for Christmas?” and I would reply “that we really did not need anything,” and I could never come up with any ideas for them.
We usually all get together for Sunday dinner, and four years ago at one of these family nights, I read the following story to my family. It reminds me so much of my own husband, because he does not like the commercialism of Christmas just like the man in the story and all of our kids had to agree, and thus was born the tradition of the “White Envelope”. It is truly the highlight of Christmas for my husband and I. We wake up on Christmas morning and we read the letters from each of our children and their family and I must admit, that it usually brings tears to our eyes! What a beautiful way to start our Christmas Day!
This is my “White Envelope”, I made it out of fabric and it goes on the Christmas tree. You could use any white envelope, but I decorated it up and we use it year after year. All of the grand kids know exactly what it is and they get caught up in the spirit also!
Last weekend I stopped at a scrapbook store and I picked up a fun class kit that they had for a Christmas Scrapbook/journal. It was the last one they had, so I took it! I brought it home and that afternoon I started putting it together…and by the end of the evening I had it almost completely put together! I was so excited that it went together so quickly and it had everything that I needed plus quite a bit more…all included in the kit! Continue reading
I decided that it is time to start with the Christmas ideas…so here is your first printable for Christmas for this year!
