Now if I can just keep pestering my husband just a little more – I bet the lights will be up on our house this weekend! (Our house looks “naked” without the Christmas lights compared to the neighbors! LOL)
But the one new addition to my snowman decorating theme this year is this:
And this little Snow Pennyrug shown above my friends is my gift to you. This is our free pattern for the blog hop and we hope you enjoy it! Here’s your link to the PDF file for you to print and enjoy:
but for now I need to go bake another batch of these:
Surprise Package Cookies – here at our house, my husband and my kids really enjoy these cookies and they are begging for more.
Another fun holiday tradition (among many!) that we have is to venture off to Indiana on Christmas Eve to spend the afternoon and evening with my parents. There we have a nice dinner, open presents and chit chat. It seems like every year when we leave there and start heading for home – it snows. I wonder if this year will be any different! Here’s a little picture of my kids last year opening their presents from Grammy and Pappa!
Are they not cute!
Christmas Day itself is always a treat having children at home! They are growing up so quickly on us, but they know – you have to believe in Santa for Santa to come and leave you presents! After our morning of fun opening Christmas gifts, I get hard to work in the kitchen, cooking up a huge meal for my family and my husbands family and anyone else that shows up. We usually end up with a dozen or more, all gathered around the dinner table feasting on all the goodies!
Christmas is a time of family fun here in our home, see even our dog Harley gets in the Christmas spirit!
And of course we cannot finish this blog post without announcing our annual special holiday gift for you.
Oh and wait – I have another special “something” for you! For the next two Fridays prior to Christmas Eve (which would be December 10th and 17th) we will be posting another free pattern on each of those days! How fun is that? Each free pattern will be holiday oriented to help you finish decorating for the season! So be sure and follow along on our blog to see the other free patterns that are coming soon!
Remember how I’ve been hinting around for days now in my newsletters, here on the blog and on FaceBook about a special surprise on our website? (if you have not signed up for our newsletter yet – what are you waiting for! You can sign up at the very end of this blog post!)
