Our Christmas Letter and a give Away

Hi all!!! First of all, I wanted to wish all of you a wonderful Christmas. Please click here to read our family’s Christmas letter.

Secondly, we are snowed in!!!! Whoo hoo!!! Several inches on the ground and a total of over a foot more expected by nightfall. Mitch is out snow-blowing our driveway and a few of the neighbors. Then, after he takes his Science and American History exams–(no snowday for that homeschooled eighth grader!!) We are going to make some hot chocolate—the old-fashioned way with milk and cocoa powder on the stove top–and then finish making fudge and candy and wrap some presents. The boys are supposed to have basketball games tonight but we figure they will be canceled.

Well, in the meantime, I want to host one more give away for Christmas. I will be giving away a Christmas goodie box to one of you on Monday. It includes a grab bag of lotion from Bath and Body Works, some yummy smelling candles from At Home America and a copy of Point of Grace’s Christmas cd along with some delicious Ghiradelli dark chocolate. 

Here is how to enter: It will be simple. Just leave a quick comment telling us what you will be doing this weekend. That’s it!!! We are all busy with final Christmas prep and don’t have lots of time to be frittering away on the computer. So let us know what are you doing and also, where you live. It is fun to see where we all reside.

I’ll go first.

Here in Saint Johns, Michigan I am wrapping, menu planning for Christmas Day and then it is off to my sister-in-love’s Thais’ for the Ehman Christmas get-together where I am asigned to bring homemade Parker House rolls….uh, um….blue ribbon award winning rolls from the 1998 Clinton County Fair—(patting myself on the back as I type!), Native American Corn Pudding and fresh Cranberry-Mandarin Orange-Jalepeno sauce. 

How about you????? Where are you and what will you be doing this weekend?

Sweet Give Away Blessings,
