6th day before Christmas

Tonight we will be gathering together for a special family home evening. We are getting together with all my siblings and their families to prepare the 12 days of Christmas for families in need. We decided that we have more than we need, and rather than getting gifts for each other, we would take the money spent and serve others. Because we wanted to make sure that the kids still enjoyed serving, we decided to do this. I would LOVE to attach the cute tags we are using, but just know that they will be posted in a few days. :)

Instead, lets kick off the week with a giveaway!

It is such a great time to remember the things about the seasons you're living right now. In this Issue: I created a little seasonal album that describes the different things we do each season. Here is a little snip-it from the article.

Although CK could only disply one of the pages, I decided to include in the email the other pages in this little album!



Leave a note telling me your favorite thing about the Christmas Season, and enter to receive a copy of this AWESOME special Issue from CK. Contest ends Wednesday! GOOD LUCK!

I feeling so cozy in our home with all the decorations and tree up. And how cheerful and giving everyone (mostly) gets.

I love spending time with my family that we don't get to see very often. I also love watching my kids open their gifts on Christmas morning.

Tonight is the 6th night of Hanukkah and we are going to a party. For me celebrating with friends and love ones is what it is about. :)

My favorite part of the Christmas season is that both my husband (a teacher) and I (an admin secretary) work for the local school district so we always get to spend at least two weeks at home or traveling with our boys. We love family time and this affords us the opportunity to spend more time with our boys during the craziness we call December. Great give-away. I've been eyeing that magazine--hope I win it. Happy Holidays! LOVE your idea of giving--we will have to incorporate that into our holiday this year.

I like imagining the look on a family member's face as I wrap that special gift for them. I enjoy the time spent together, but I also enjoy the time I spend thinking about friends and family as I decorate, bake, and shop. It's all good!

Jackie said...

My children get to see giving to others in need in action - they are old enough to be a part of our family traditions that include giving to others. Also, this year, finally! they have some real opinions on their gifts and such!

I love the smells of the season. A smell can remind you of your childhood or a memory and so many of these smells are special to Christmas. Everytime I smell our Christmas tree, i remember my childood.

What I love about Christmas is seeing the look of the the kids as they open up their presents on Christmas day. Of course, all my kids/grandkids are older now so spending time with family and friends is what's important to me now!
