Today is my turn! Thank you Stacy for inviting me again, and for all your hard work!
I was trying to think of some of my favorite things of Christmas with my family, and there are just soooooo many! I think my favorite things leading up to Christmas would be going to chop down the tree! When I was a little kid, our family always piled into the station wagon, dog and all, to chop down a tree. We (my husband and I) kept that up with our kids, and had some fun experiences! Once we forgot to bring rope to tie the tree to our mini van, so the guy at the tree farm/woods, used some twine. On our way down the interstate, our tree came flying off! Thank goodness there wasn't anyone driving close behind us, or it may have not been a funny story to tell! The kids were crying, my husband pulled off the exit, and got back on the other direction, so we could get it. Our son, who was probably about 6, was so afraid it went into the river, and was sobbing! We got to the opposite side of the interstate, pulled over, my honey ran across, hopped the median barrier, picked up the 7' tree, climbed the barrier again, and had to sit on it, with the tree and wait for semi's to pass by...honking at him, of course! Well....we had no rope, remember? So the two little kids and golden retriever, all scrunched in the front with me, my husband opened the back of the van and shoved in the tree! It was cold, our son was still crying, afraid it would fall out again, but we made it home! Thank goodness we weren't more than a mile and a half from home! It was great getting back into the warm house and lighting the fireplace! It was a trip we'll always remember....and we call it our "Griswald Family Christmas Story!"
Here is your pattern!
And here is a recipe from Stacy, that she sent for me, because I couldn't get my act together and think of a favorite! Haha! Thank you Stacy...I'm gonna try this one also!
I hope you all are enjoying this wonderful hop, and making lots of projects! I sure know I plan to make a few!
Have a Merry Joy-filled Christmas!
