~~The Christmas Spirit Award~~



Hello Everyone! I have survived another weekend of watching the boys... We had a busy weekend watching Classic Christmas Cartoons and Christmas movies... We did some holiday baking & also went out to tour Christmas lights in the neighborhoods around where my daughter lives... I will be posting those pictures hopefully tomorrow... I am exhausted but a nice HOT shower took care of everything...


This is a very special award dedicated to having wonderful Christmas spirit!
It was passed on to me by my new friend Melissa at
Melissa's Heart and Home and Diane at Four Paws and Co . Please visit their blogs and you will see why I enjoy them so much... They are fun and very interesting ladies...




Here are the rules for the Christmas award.
  1. You must be a true Christmas lover to receive this award. (I am for sure)
  2. The person to whom you give the award must also be in love with Christmas. (I know you all love this holiday as much as I do)
  3. You must link back to the person who gave you the award. (I did)
  4. You must list 5 things that you love about Christmas. (Only 5???)
  5. If you can't limit it to 5 things, then keep going till you run out of space! (OH OK)
  6. Pass the award along to as many people as you like. (I love all my bloggin friends) That can be 1 or 50. (at least) It's up to you! But, you must pass it on to at least one person in order to keep the Christmas cheer going! (CHEERS)
  7. Let your recipients know that you have tagged them by leaving them a comment. (Ok you beautiful people... you're tagged)
~~Here are some of my Favorite Things.~~
  1. The wonders of Christmas as seen through the eyes of a child
  2. Being with my family and friends to share the excitement of the holidays
  3. Riding through the neighborhoods and seeing all the houses decorated
  4. How warm and cozy my home looks all dressed up for the holidays
  5. Christmas music... I can never hear enough
  6. Christmas movies... I love them all
  7. The spirit of giving & sharing... especially to those less fortunate then us
  8. Going outside and looking for a red light up in the sky & then telling my grandchildren it is Rudolf practising his route
  9. All the holiday parties, activities and parades
  10. My family all together on Christmas day to enjoy good food, fun and remembering with fondness our family who are no longer with us

I am passing this award on to all of the people on my favorite blog list

All of them have shown tremendous spirit for the Holiday season!

I have really enjoyed reading your blogs, hearing about your traditions and seeing all of your Christmas decorations in your homes.
