Video Wednesday – Merry Christmas!

Posted Dec 24 2014 in , , , , , ,

No matter what holiday you celebrate, I think we all take time to be grateful to be with our families. Overall, 2014 was a pretty sucky year. I’m glad it’s about over, but it could always be worse. I’ve spent every day with my kids, in my own house, sleeping in my own bed. Take […]

Cookie Day!

Posted Dec 8 2014 in , , , ,

Every year for the past 27 years (damn, I sound really old when I write it like that), my best friend and I have gotten together to bake Christmas cookies. It’s one of the few traditions that is important to me. We’ve done it for so long that we almost have it down to a […]

Merry Christmas

I love Christmas light shows. I’m too lazy to ever attempt it myself, but I love that others do it. (I’m also glad that I don’t actually live next to one of these houses.)     Have a happy and safe holiday!!

While on Twitter, I noticed some people mentioning their non-traditional holiday meal — cheeseburgers and tater tots. While I do […]

You know, given that the holidays are this weekend, you’d think that the blogosphere would’ve slowed down some. Not the case. I still found gobs of great posts to share. TV Surprisingly, I only have a few TV post to mention. Of course the first up is Tiffany White again. I swear, we’re not related, […]

Holiday Traditions – Music

Posted Dec 20 2011 in , , , , ,

Last week I said that I didn’t grow up with too many holiday traditions, but music was always a part of Christmas. A local radio station starts playing only Christmas music right after Thanksgiving. Usually by the first week of December, I’ve tuned in and listen a lot. Half of our cookie baking day is […]

Holiday Traditions – Christmas Cookies

Posted Dec 13 2011 in , , , ,

I grew up with very few holiday traditions. The ones we did have came from my grandparents more than my mom. My dad died when I was 4, so she was a single working mother and she did her best. She always did Christmas morning breakfast for the whole family. Christmas Eve was at her […]
