  10. Hi Cassie, Let me see I love traditions and I think one of my favorites is Christmas Eve going to church and then back to the in-laws and when we get home we read "The Night Before Christmas" even when my kids got to be teenagers they still wanted to do that and they got there very own special ornament for the tree. That way when they move out they all ready have there own collection

  19. Hi Cassie, I am a new follower and our favorite Christmas thing is getting up before the kids do and grabbing a pot and spoon and banging it nice and loud until everyone is awake! The kids say it is loud and they hate it, but we have carried this on from when I was little to when I had kids and now onto the grandkids. Thanks for the chance at the blog candy.

  22. I love your jar. What a great project. I am a follower. My favorite tradition is something my parents did with us when we were little and I've continued it on with my kids. On Christmas eve they open a small gift. This year we have decided to add a little to the tradition and give them pj's to open up. Which we will be continuing each Christmas.

  23. Hello, I am a blogger friend of Ange and Deb's and am so glad they encouraged me to do this great hop, I love the altered jar you made, the ribbon type bow on top is gorgeous and I have not seen this before. I am super happy to follow and keep up to date and am doing this great challenge today, there is only my little (almost 4) boy and I, so on Christmas eve we started a tradition last year that we open his stocking and sing christmas carols, I sat him through miracle of 34th St last year but am buying one of the Santa Claus movies this year to watch. I love Christmas. Love to you and yours. Melxx

    One of my favorite traditions has been making lefse, krumkake, and flatbread (Norwegian treats) each holiday season. It's been so fun to learn about his Scandinavian heritage :)
