I just love this necklace, Amy!! It's gorgeous!

No idea what my favorite holiday tradition is, but some include our elf Noel that visits us in December and surprises the kids with a new hiding spot or other fun things each day. I also love baking and making goodies to give with gifts. And a personal favorite has been making a move to mostly handmade items for presents.

this is lovely! thanks for the opportunity to win.

As for my holiday tradition, they change some based on what directions my family is moving. But my mother made a special dish and I like to make it each year, to anchor me to some continuity.

And I like to have my children over, share some food and play a game together. We all enjoy the shared fun.

You MADE this?!!! It's GORGEOUS!!! Wow. OK, I was sidetracked. Back to the question. Um...what was the question again? Oh yes. My family is just starting traditions this year, we're doing 3:
advent calendar, Christmas Eve church service, and my newest fun thing, which may become my favorite (I'm not sure since I just got the fruit loops tonight after the kids went to bed): making fruit loop garland for the tree!

Enjoying the lights

The Sewing Dork said...

Our tradition is to cut down a homely tree, drag it home and burden it with decorations that threaten to tip it over. We do it year after year, and I must say, I love those little Charlie Brown trees.
