Like making cute Christmas crafts with your kids? Jenn at Ramblings of a Crazy Woman has tons of great & easy ideas!
I love, love, love Christmas music! Here are some of my favorite songs (in no particular order).
Editor's note Friday Dec. 7th: If you have not been to Ree's recipe blog The Pioneer Woman Cooks this morning you need to check out her no fuss Sugar cookies. I have never seen them decorated this way - looking forward to making a batch soon. These too, would make a great food gift!Have you ever had Dale and Thomas popcorn? Jeremy and I buy some every time we are in NYC. So good!! Dale and Thomas Popcorn will let you order their popcorn now and you tell them when to ship it. They are also offering free shipping until mid-night Sunday, December 9th. The code is E12X6S4T. Their sampler packs would be great to break up for teacher gifts.
This is not food related, but I think a great gift for moms. Karla, at Looking Toward Heaven has a company called Fruition Designs. How many times have you needed to give another mom your information and not had paper or pen? The mommy card handles that for you! Parent.com agrees because they put it on their 2007 Holiday Pick List. Fruition Designs is having a sale on the Mommy cards (lots of designs to choose from) and offering free shipping through the end of December. Hey Jeremy - are you listening (hint, hint)?
So now it is your turn. I would love to hear some of your Christmas traditions, favorite songs, or food or regular gift ideas!! Leave me a comment or post them on your blog.
