My daughter sent these photos of the Christmas Wishes packets hanging on her tree…before December 1st. Oops! I’m just getting around to showing them.
Are you (US residents) ready for the big turkey day feast tomorrow? Our daughter and family were here for the weekend so we had our big meal this past Sunday.
I recruited two helpers to slather butter between the skin and breast of the turkey. Smaller hands worked great.
Best turkey ever!
It’s that time again for the box of Christmas Wishes! I had to get these ready now so the recipients can take them home at Thanksgiving (and save me from mailing them later).
Instead of buying paper for the packets, I used some old music paper which I ran through the printer to add some holiday graphics.
The packets contain a small ornament to hang on a small 2-foot tree. One ornament per child each day beginning December 1st so by Christmas Eve the tree will be decorated. This year it’s 69 ornaments as the candy cane tree won’t hang on the tree. (BTW, my daughter saves most of the ornaments each year and gives them back to me every other year so I don’t have to buy all new ones each year. And the grandchildren haven’t complained yet!)
Do you have an Advent tradition?
Do you have guests coming to your home during the Thanksgiving and/or Christmas holidays?
I do. So I made up an information sheet with our WiFi password, home phone number, and address so if they need access to these things, they can find it quickly. In case of an emergency, the home phone number and street address is right there.
