We want to see the stuff you have done lately, add your links and comment on a few others because we all love getting comments.
We love Christmas, it is hereditary I think. My Grandma Twila's house was the "Christmas house" of our small town it was a beacon of joy and celebration to all that drove by or entered her home. Her grandchildren felt blessed to have the job of being Christmas elves, which depending on our size could be anything from checking for dead lights and fuses, setting up the Christmas village (which took up two large fold out tables), outdoor lighting, window clings, Christmas train.....the list goes on and on. Because she had so much that needed to be done we usually began working just after Halloween and by Thanksgiving it was ready to go. It was always magical; her warm laugh, Bing Crosby Christmas eight tracks, Cinnamon Toast and Hot Chocolate. The agreement that Grandma and Grandpa made is that the lights couldn't be turned on until Thanksgiving evening, but she was always prepared to take full advantage of the holidays.
Probably my favorite Christmas still to this day, was the year that I went to the fabric store picked out three coordinating fabrics and made Al a cap sleeve shirt, a two layered knit skirt and a little jacket and then I found a matching pair of shoes. It was so nice for me to be able to express my love to her in the time I spent working on it.
