Good morning stampers! Last night was my work Christmas party. It is always so much fun because we all bring a dish to share and we just eat and have a great time chatting and relaxing! We have a Secret Angel exchange every year and we always reveal at the party who we have been a Secret Angel to for the last couple of weeks. I love to try to guess mine and question people about the things I got! I wasn't right again this year about who my angel was! I guess I should just admit that I'm easily fooled! I never seem to guess right! Dawn was my Secret Angel this year, thank you Dawn for all of my wonderful goodies!
This picture is of one of my gifts. This adorable snowman is made from a large coffee can. The twine around his hat unties and I had a cute snowman candle holder down inside! I just love the holidays, don't you?
Family traditions are so important and wonderful too. On both sides of our family we play a white elephant game. We include the kids in on our exchanges too. They get a kick out of it and they love to do the shopping for their exchange gifts. I would love to hear about family traditions that you have too! Be thinking about it and I will give away Blog Goodies again for those of you who share.
We can't forget though the real reason for the season. This is such a holy and wonderful time of year. I think it is important to teach my children how good it is to give to those less fortunate. My daughter Amie was so excited this year when she got to help Grandpa ring the bell at one of the Salvation Army Red Kettles. Now she is always sure to make certain we put money into a kettle every time we see one!
Be thinking about those traditions that you want to share and I will post the Blog Goodies and rules later today.
Happy Stampin' and TTFN!
