Well Nothing Says Christmas...

... like going on a trip! It's been so quiet around this little blog because of an incredibly busy weekend and it's gearing up to be a busy day tomorrow. I fly out of Philadelphia (oh the joy of flying from Philadelphia ) tomorrow night into Chicago with a layover in between the two. That layover consists of 49 minutes exactly, and Philadelphia is known for delays at this time of year, so if you wouldn't mind praying for a delay-free exit from Philadelphia, I would appreciate it!

Last night both of my brothers and their families came over for dinner so I just can't resist posting a picture of Ethan:o).

Posting is going to be slim to none until the New Year because I'm seriously questioning the internet access where I'm going, so I thought I would hold a little contest for all of your faithful (and new!) readers while I'm gone:o).


A few years ago I went to a Princess House show in Florida with my sister and won these four little snowflake holders! The hostess very excitedly told me I could use them as a candle holder (as pictured above) or as a placeholder for name tags for a dinner.

It was a really good idea and for a while I shared her enthusiasm, but since I came home from that trip, I haven't used them once (except to take the pictures for this post!). So I figured it was time to let someone else enjoy them!

All you have to do to enter this contest is to leave a comment on this post. It would also be great if you linked here as well, but that's not necessary:o). When I come back from my adventures in the mid-west, I'll pick the winner!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I hope you all have a very blessed Christmas - whether you spend it with family or friends! Let's not forget the real reason for Christmas and take the opportunity to share the love of Christ.

Merry Christmas!

I know that you will be shocked to see this-but I actually had my interest sparked with a contest (my competitve side). Anyway, I could use these for my many parties (hopefully with the new house!), but I understand if you pick someone else. I just thought writing a paragraph would help! Hope you had fun in IN!!!
