Sounds like a great weekend! Enjoy your holiday. The kids in our area go until the 23rd. Good for busy mommies...tough on teachers and bus drivers!

My favourite tradition is the weekend before Christmas when my brothers and their families and my family all get together for a big potluck meal, usually the last Sunday before. It really starts Christmas off for me.

Thanks for sharing your toys! :)

DtsArt said...

Oh how fun!
One of my favorite traditions is after we decorate the Christmas Tree early in the season we have hot chocolate and talk about our hopes for the holiday season, parties we may have planned, what we want for Christmas, who is on our list for Christmas and we also talk about memorable Christmas moments from the past.
Thanks for the chance to win.

Oh my isn't that sweet.
My favorite tradition is go to church with the hole family on dec 24th, and after that, watch All you need is Love. It brings man or woman from all over the world to their loved onces in the Netherlands. Just love that :)

Debbie said...

My favorite tradition is each year I do some special one-on-one time with each daughter. With the oldest daughter we always made Christmas fudge together. Now that she is 26 and lives in far away Chicago that tradition is done and gone. My next daughter and I now make Christmas cookies together. She will be turning 16 next year so I only have a few more seasons to share our one-on-one. Treasure those times.

Linda T. said...

We have several holiday traditions, but my favorite has to be cookie and candy making with our cousins. We spend one whole day together creating Christmas masterpieces!

My favorite tradition is all of it! Putting out the decorations, sitting in the glow of the tree lights with my husband, seeing my childrens' excitement when they open their stockings (and they are 40, 38, and 30!) and now most of all it's seeing the glow on my only granddaughter's face and being in the presence of her excitement! It's all wonderful!

Ann said...

My favorite holiday tradition is shopping (one day from a.m. to p.m.) with my wonderful hubbie of 48 years. We start early, have a nice lunch and dinner out, and return home exhausted. It is always a special day for us together! Have done it for years.
Thanks for the chance to win!

Favorite holiday traditions. Well, my favorite is when we all sit down together, EVERY evening the month of December, on the couch and read some sort of Christmas story and then sing carols together. This started when my kiddos were little and much to my surprise is still going on now that my kids are 24, 20 and 12. I LOVE IT!! :D

Lucy said...

Have a great time! My fave tradition is the family getting together and spending the whole day eating and being merry :)

Tanya said...

So fun! What a great time you must have had! Our family tradition is one we atarted once the family got too big! We all gather at my parents home on the Saturday before Christmas...this year there will be over 54 people. We have a huge potluck and Santa drops by for a visit with the children (those under 18 get a gift from Santa), then those over 18 have a White Elephant give exchange...This has been a fun way to gather, share a meal, and celebrate the holiday. Thanks for letting me share a family tradition with you. Much love and happiness through the holidays and a prosperous New Year!

Debbie J said...

A tradition started when we moved to Florida is to go to the beach on Christmas day. It's especially fun if we have visitors from up north who left cold and snow to see them walking in the sand barefoot on Dec. 25th!!!

Jessalee said...

We always have Christmas Eve at my in-laws and open presents there before having our Christmas morning with just our kids. That's not even counting St. Nick's Day where the kids find treats in their stockings. They might be spoiled!

rhonda said...

Enjoy your down time. And the new furniture! My favorite holiday tradition is decorating gingerbread houses with the grandchildren. It has been amazing to see how their creations have developed and changed over the years. Then we take pictures and a new scrapbook page is created!

Merry Christmas!

The Fillhard's said...

My favorite tradition is Christmas Eve. I make us all new jammies, get a new holiday movie, we have a junk food dinner (the kids love this, we get everyones favorite finger foods - pizza rolls, cheese sticks, little smokies, candy coated popcorn). I started making new jammies, not intending it to become a tradition but I overheard my 12 year old son tell someone that it was the best part of Christmas so I guess I will be doing this for a long time :)

rhoffer said...

Spending the entire day at home--there are some years when the kids haven't even changed out of their pajamas! Our families are spread throughout the state so we do quite a bit of traveling before and after Christmas so it is always nice to take a break and enjoy the day at home.

Andi said...

I also have some ornaments of mine own that I hang in the same place every year.

My Mom and sisters get together a few weekends before Christmas at one of our houses (travel is involved so planning is needed) and have our annual cookie bake. We each make two kinds of cookies, one baked before we get there and one baked at the host home with the help of the other ladies. It has beeen expanded over the years to also include our daughters and even some of the granddaughters. This was our eleventh year of doing this and we all look forward to it. Thanks for the giveaway.

Long time follower and look forward to your emails so that I can be inspired to do things as well as you do. Since my daughter, her husband and my granddaughter moved away, my favorite tradition is when they come for Christmas eve day and we celebrate together.

jesusislord said...

My favorite family tradition is for each person in the family to open one gift on Christmas eve. Then the little ones (grandkids now) are allowed to stay up as long as they can keep their eyes open to play with their new toy. Kinda cuts down a little bit on the Christmas morning frenzy at well!

Debbie (from Sugar Land) said...

I guess I have lots of favorites - but the best is just being together and watching my grown kids enjoy being with each other.

Myrna said...

I am afraid our traditions no longer exist since all our family is scattered all over. But when I was younger the part of Christmas I liked best was right after dinner we all sat around talking and getting caught up on everyones lives. Also later in the evening, turkey buns. lol

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Lovely give away, by the way.

Since I moved away from home by states not miles, I miss the family gatherings when all my sisters and brothers got together with my Mom for a meal and gifts. Great fun. We use to do the same thing with my Mom's extended family and there is nothing like it.
Thanks for sharing,

Six Flags! That sounds like fun. I have never been there :) Every year we spend Christmas Eve at my in-laws home. We have a big dinner complete with china and crystal. My hubby's brother and sister (not married) and his 101 yo grandmother come and we all stay the night. The next morning we have coffee and breakfast and open presents. Then we go to my parents' home and meet up with all my brothers and sisters (there are 7 of us all with families so it is a much bigger party). If there is snow, we go sledding on the hills around my parents' home. These are traditions I will always treasure.

Thanks for the chance to win this cute cartridge - I don't own any winter carts!

A long time tradition at our house is to draw a picture and write a note for Santa. Each child then attaches his picture and note to his own Christmas stocking. As the children got older, the notes and pictures became more interesting for sure!

My favorite holiday tradition was making christmas cookies with the kids. As they grew older - they helped and we made even more and gave to the single soldiers in the barracks. Now that they are grown and left home and we are no longer near a military post, we celebrate by watching a christmas movie with the childs family we are with and opening only 1 present on Christmas eve.

Your weekend sounds fun! I JUST (as in minutes ago!) submitted my final essay of the term so I'm on holiday too! Woo hoo! Enjoy your break!

My favourite tradition occurs on Christmas Eve. When I make my gingerbread, I always bake cuts for the children to make their own houses - and on Christmas Eve, the children assemble and decorate them! It's so much fun - and a yummy tradition too!

Every year we shop for "wish" kids. I love doing this.

Holiday crafting! We trade off days learning and sharing a new crafty idea at a friends home, then ours. This weekend, we are making Christmas cards using the Cricut :-) my crafty friend has never used one and I can't wait to get her hooked!

I love Christmas! My favorite tradition is making Christmas cookies with my grandsons!! We have so much fun they just love to roll out and cut the dough in their favorite shapes. These truly are holiday memories to cherish.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to win a cartridge! My favorite Christmas tradition, typically, is decorating. I love making new ornaments and holiday crafts to pair with the old ones!

I love CTMH and cricut. For 19 years my granddaughter and family have spent every Christmas Eve together. We get up Christmas morning for santa Clause and chocolate and biscuits. My husband does the cooking. I love traditions. Crafty2 Sandra Keel

My favorite tradition would be everyone in the family loading up and going to spend Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at my Grandparent's house! We open gifts and then the cooking begins! I love sitting around sharing stories and laughs all day long!

Merry Christmas :)

Jen said...

What a fun weekend!

One of my favorite traditions is going up to my grandparents' house for breakfast and gifts on Christmas morning. Now that we have four (soon to be five sometime today) great-grandchildren, it is even more wonderful.

That for the opportunity to win a fabulous cart! Merry Christmas!

Enjoy your "slow down" time! My favorite tradition started 8yrs ago. My family and I cook and deliver hot Christmas meals to the elderly, disabled and in need on Christmas day. We also deliver gifts to the families that are in need. This tradition started because an elderly woman came into the local deli looking for a hot meal. She was told "we do not serve hot meals on the holidays". From that moment on we started to form a plan on how to feed people and 8yrs later we have grown to 250+ meals and 80+ children to buy gifts for. It truly is a blessing to be able to do this for those in need.

Thanks for the chance to win this cartridge. I think it looks really fun to use. My favorite holiday tradition is to have friends and family over for a big cookie baking party. After we have baked and ate, everyone takes goodies home for their families.

We decided to do a Christmas Pickle this year. It is a German tradition. You hide the pickle on Christmas eve and the first child to find it in the morning gets an extra treat. They also said they get an extra blessing, but I can't pray to bless one kid over the other. We cut our pickle out of a green foam sheet using the Cricut and the Bags, Tags, Boxes and more cartridge that came loaded in the Gypsy. It was a tag that was oval but skinnier on one end. Then gave it spots with stickles.

Tammy V said...

I would have to say the family get together is my favorite tradition. I so look forward to it!

My favorite tradition is to have the kids each pick their favorite ornament off the tree and I take a picture of them with it. It's fun to see how they change from year to year.

Marie said...

Up until my son was diagnosed with high blood pressure, we always went out to eat at a Chinese restaurant!! We still have many fond memories of eating out and seeing friends as well.

Kysha Plante said...

My favorite tradition is that we all meet at my parents house and eat Popeyes fried chicken and then we pile into the truck and go look at christmas lights. We can't all go in one truck now due to marriages but at least half of us go together.

Crystal said...

Our favorite family Christmas tradition is stockings on Christmas morning! They ate always filled with the traditional stuff like fruit & nuts, small fun gifts, but the toe always holds something special. Last year I got diamond earrings & my husband got the fancy watch he'd been wanting. Isn't Santa a good ol' fella?? I love your sight!

Lisa said...

I have seen some great cards made with this cartridge. I'd love to have it in my collection!!

Lara said...

My favorite tradition is the Christmas dinner after church and presents have been opened. Love to sit and talk with my family!

Linda said...

I used to have some traditions but when DS married those went out the window. Would love this cart!

barbp said...

Traditions have changed a bit now that our son is grown & married. I guess my favorite now is making the family breakfast Christmas morning. It always has to include Eggs Benedict with champagne & cranberry juice. Next Christmas we will see the start of new traditions as our first Grandchild will be celebrating his/her first Christmas. :)

Heather said...

Awesome giveaway! My favorite holiday tradition is making the giant pancake on Christmas morning!

Love this cartridge!!
My very favorite Christmas tradition with my family is going to our local Chinese restaurant on the 23rd of December. We have been going to the Chinese Restaurant since I was born, approximately 26 years and counting:) There have been very few years where we have not gone. The staff is like family and they always request that my parents sing a Christmas song before they leave. Now I am married and have incorporated my husband into the tradition and hope to one day pass it down to my children. I know, it sounds like the "Christmas Story" movie, but it's something we have always always done. This is my very favorite Christmas Tradition.Thanks for the chance to win:)

Amanda said...

My favorite tradition is decorating the tree! I LOVE the lights that dance to the music! (even if they give me a headache!)

My favorite tradition is having my granddaughter sprinkle raindeer dust up the driveway to the front door. We leave carrot out for them to eat and the raindeer leave "hoof prints" from the front door to the carrots. She just loves it.

My favorite tradition is the Christmas eve candle light service

Diane said...

My favorite tradition is the reading of Christ's birth from the Bible on Christmas morning. It use to be my Dad reading it, but now it is my husband since my Dad passed. We gather everyone together on Christmas morning before we open the gifts, and he reads the story of why we are celebrating!

Brenda said...

my favorite holiday tradition with my kids who are now 22, 17 and 14 is when we pile in my SUV and go around and look at lights! we have always done that since they were really little! love it!

My favorite Christmas tradition is decorating the tree with my daughters. When it is time for the ornaments, I take each one out of the boxes and usually have a special story to go with it. I am sure they have heard the stories about ornaments my grandma made or the ones they made way back in pre-k a dozen times, but they still listen and smile with each story. It may take us a little longer to decorate the tree, but there are no plain ball ornaments... every single thing hanging on the tree has a special meaning. Finally, my husband and my youngest daughter put on the angel topper. In a few short years, she'll be tall enough that she won't need him to lift her to reach the top of the tree, but I am hoping they still keep the tradition of doing it together.

Barb S said...

Thanks for the opportunity to win this great cartridge! Our traditions are centered on family mostly--what we eat, games to play, the way we open gifts together (one at a time in order to enjoy each one!). One of my favorite traditions was with my husband's family in southern Ohio where several family family members lived near one another. On Christmas night we would go from house to house to see each other's gifts. It was always a lot of fun!

JenE said...

We love driving around the neighborhood looking at Christmas lights! L

Unwraping presents Christmas day is our family tradition. We sit in a circle and a designated grandchild is Santa and hands out gifts one by one. We take turns opening them and showing what we got before the next person gets to open one. We traditionally take two to three hours to open gifts. We pause half way through for food and beverages. When the kids were little they used to get so excited waiting for their turn.

RJMDC said...

My favorite tradition is making Christmas cookies. We always make spritz cookies and I try not to eat all of them!

In2JC724 said...

Our family has a few fun Christmas traditions. We like to decorate early, sometimes a week or so before Thanksgiving even. I also spend a lot of time making crafts for gifts and decorations. On Christmas Eve we have a big dinner with family at our house, and then we spend Christmas Day with just our immediate family. It makes for a special time of year!

Elaine said...

Yay how fun! My favorite tradition is the wonderful Christmas Eve we always have - crazy fun day, late evening church, a wonderfully traditional late night meal then we each can open one gift then bed super late, up early to enjoy Santa!

Kelly Blades said...

My favorite tradition has been meeting all my brothers and their families at our step-moms house each year and playing the Chinese Christmas gift exchange game (with tons of laughs). This will be our first year without our dear step-mom and we are beginning a new tradition of meeting at one of my brothers house. Life goes on and we can all look back and smile when we remember our children growing up having Christmas each year with their grammy.

Dawn, RI said...

Things are mad crazy,I cant believe Christmas is 13 days away.I had tons of ideas and stuff I wished to be done, but I forget my disabilities and every thing just sits undone.

Probably the only tradition I have is that my side of the family is spent together on Christmas eve. This was carried on from my Mother who had her family over on Christmas eve. It's a nice tradition and the only time of the year that we are all together at the same time.

Stephanie said...

We have a tradition that started the first year we were married and this is our17th Christmas to do it. Every year we pick out an ornament as a couple that is symbolic of something specific that has happened that year, we sharpie a date on it if it is not engraved and we put it on our tree. When our children were born we started adding one each year for each of them and of course our animal babies get one too. It is so much fun to open the box of these when decorating and go through and remember what each one stood for. The kids love it and it brings back so many wonderful memories. We now have enough for a completely separate tree of just these ornaments. We call it our "family" tree. When Our children get older and have families of their own they can choose to take their ornaments and continue the tradition on their own trees or leave it at our house to continue until we no longer can.

I am just getting started with my Cricut and this cartridge reminds me so much of my grandma's knitting. I would love to have it.

We have several traditions. One is the annual tree hunt with all our kids and now their kids and then after we have dinner in an old family-style Italian restaurant. And then there is baking day. I spend a whole day baking all the Christmas cookies and goodies and whoever is available comes to help decorate. We have Christmas music playing and it is always a fun day.

Happy holidays to all!

BUGSTER said...

I just love the inspiration that I get from you! My favorite tradition is opening up ONE gift on Christmas Eve, and then seeing the eager little faces on my little ones as they anticipate what might be waiting the next morning under the tree!
