Just In Case You Missed it {Plus a little Giveaway-Closed}

Last week we were pretty with real life, doing and writing blog posts. We kinda had some blogging brain freezes that resulted in us not redirecting you to the proper channels.
We forgot to send you over to Frances & Suzanne's blog to show you Jo's awesome snow pant flip of Shwin & Shwin's No. 9 Trousers.

How would you like to win a copy, of Shwin & Shwin No.9 Trousers? Just leave a comment with your favorite tradition (and if you are a non-reply blogger leave your e-mail address too). We will close this giveaway on Wednesday, 11:59 MST. To give you enough time to make it before the Flip this Pattern linky party closes

Thank you Shauna for sharing this awesome pattern with one of our lucky readers! I know we were so excited to have this as a stylish boys pants pattern in our bag of tricks.

Al also shared her "What Child is This?" Mini Quilt Tutorial over at Jill Made It. What a great way to remember the reason behind the season.

  1. I caught the pattern flip:) I thought it was a great job, especially the knees. I try not to get too hung up on traditions. When I got married we ended up with a whole nuther' set of traditions, and they just sort of mixed. We ended up with a whole new thing. I just wing it every year if I'm being honest, but I'd really like to try making this special punch this year. It has Jamaica flowers, raisins, plums. Coconut, pineapple...all kinds of fruit; and it's served hot like a cider.

  2. Those snow pants are such a great idea. And I'm sure you'll get a ton of use out of them too!
    We have lots of traditions and now we're passing them on to our girl. My husband's Sicilian family does the huge Christmas Eve meal where everyone gets together with an insane amount of food which is a really great time. We live a few states away from everyone so being there that night with his whole side of the family is really fun and special.

  3. we're just starting out making our own traditions--plans are to have a quiet evening with the kids opening one or two small gifts and then spend the evening playing games and just enjoying eachothers' company and remembering our dear Savior!

  4. This is the 3rd year we have done this and its pretty fun. Every day in December until Christmas we open a book (that I wrap up ahead of time). Most are Christmas books, but a few are ones the kids just like since we don't have 25 Christmas books yet. We've added a few each year though and hopefully we'll have all Christmas books in a few years. The kids love getting a present everyday and its nice to have a different book to read each night before bed

  5. My favorite tradition is Christmas Eve pajamas!!! Although the past 2 years we've done a tradition where we eat grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup on the night we get our Christmas tree!!! I think that's fun and special too! I love the ringing in of the season! :)

  6. There's so many! But decorating is a big one! And seeing Santa, going downtown to ride the carosel and see the Macy's train window are fun ones too! Love Christmas Eve lasagna with family! Thanks for the chance to win! Love the pants!

  7. Very cool flip. A few years ago we moved out to some land that had been in my husband's family for generations. Our new tradition for getting a tree is to go out and cut one down. I love it!

  8. Snow pants would get worn quite often this past week - I can't imagine sewing some up though! My favorite part about this time of year is all the lights that get put up on the houses- so cheerful and festive. But my favorite tradition is making/getting a new ornament that represents our past year - something my parents started and we have continued with our kids.

  9. My favorite tradition is going to the "Zoo Lights" holiday light show at our local zoo. Always a good time! Thanks for the giveaway!

  10. My favorite tradition is going to the tree farm, picking out and cutting down our own tree and then taking it home to decorate it. It's usually freezing cold but we come home to drink hot chocolate and light a fire in the fire place. When we sit back as a family to look at the lights, all that cold is worth it.

  11. Wow, those snow pants are awesome! My husband and I have tried blending our own families' traditions and also make new ones with our girls. One of my favorites is making an ornament for the girls each year. My husband's mom always gave him and his brother an ornament for Christmas each year and I love passing that on to our girls!

  12. My favorite tradition is Christmas Breakfast. We always had aebleskiver growing up. They are like little hollow cardamom spiced pancake balls that you fill with applesauce or yogurt of jam. They are delicious.
