How fun!! I love large family/friends Thanksgivings. :)

One tradition we have is to put up the Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. It was what I did as a child and have continued the tradition. Please enter me in the Kindle giveaway.

We never did until a week before Christmas. THat's one of my favorite things about artificial Christmas trees. I can put it up early! In my office, my tree is already up!


We hope to go our youngest childs new home for Christmas

The ultimate Christmas present!!! Congratulations. :)

Yes, we have new additions to the family. Twins and a grandson so we will get to celebrate the Lord's birthday with them! I have the book but would like to be in the Kindle drawing :) 

Twins???!!! Congratulations!

I am terrible at keeping up with traditions and this year have been going through a complicated separation/custody battle. I want to start something new with my boys, but lack motivation. :) Maybe I will get some inspiration from one of the answers here. :) We do stockings and christmas PJs. We read the Luke 2 Christmas story before we open presents.

Carrie, your reply breaks my heart. I'm so sorry. I'll be praying for you. I love reading Luke 2 to remind us of the ultimate sacrifice that baby would make for us. Sending cyber hugs (((((((Carrie))))))).

Thank you so much, Ane. I appreciate that. It really is okay. God has been so good and i have lots of great support from family and friends. ♡

1. I always like to find some other way to give to others at this time. In the past I have given to the food bank, given a gift to a child in need, or some other worthwhile cause. I am still deciding who and what for this year in addition to the others.

I love that you look for different ways. What a great tradition!
