Thanks for the great giveaway. My family is spread across the country, so just seeing them is definitely my favorite part of the holidays

Christina said...

I've never heard of this book, sounds like a tear-jerker. I love to read. What I cherish most is time with my family. We spent a few Christmases away from my family, and it was so depressing. No matter where you are or what you have, family is everything!

Christina said...

I'm also going to subscribe. :)

Hannah said...

Sounds like a wonderful book! Being with family is what I cherish most about the holiday season. I subscribed!

Krisi and Adam said...

What a book - this sounds so good. The thing I definately cherish about the holidays is family time and teaching my girls more about the Savior and the Plan of Salvation.

I always love just remembering the old days but also the new ones. I have a new granddaughter this year so I guess you can say that she is one of my main reasons for my happiness this season. I want her to have a great one like her great grandpa made sure her momma did. As I go shopping more frugally this year it is funner the money aspect is off and what they really like is what I am on focused on this year when we start to decorate will probably fall in love with the season all over again. Thanks for offering the free giveaway.

Being with family and baking! Those are my favorite parts of the holiday season. =) I love reading and this book looks like a good read. Thanks for doing your first ever giveaway! YEAH!!

Shirley said...

Hmmm. I love everything about it! I love shopping, wrapping gifts, the music, the decorations, the baking, the celebration of the birth of JESUS! I guess I can say my favorite thing about Christmas is the anticipation and excitement of it! Kind of like how the birth of Christ is the anticipation of His gift of salvation... the whole reason He came!

Hi - I love any oppurtunity to talk about Jesus.

Cherie J said...

My favorite part is the wonder and excitement of my 2 year old daughter and 5 year old over even the smallest things about this seasson. Their enthusiasm is so contagious it makes my Christmas even more joyful. Thanks for the contest!

What a super giveaway! Love your cute blog! With family spread out, just getting together for some uninterrupted time of chatting, relaxing, games, and eating tops the chart for us! My Mom always waits until we get there to hang the Hallmark ornaments on the tree - oh, we also ALWAYS have pumpkin pie for breakfast on Christmas morning!

Busy Mom said...

I have a lot of favorites about Christmas but one that comes to mind right now is the photo cards adn letters we get in the mailbox during this time. I love catching up with everyone. We live away from lots of family--so it's nice to share a little with each of them this way. The book looks really good and I love to read!

Doris said...

I live so far away from my family that I miss them so much during the holidays. However, over the last five years I've met several ladies who are like my family now and we spend Boxing Day at my house, enjoying relaxing music and munchies and getting away from the stress of it all.

rusty'swife said...

Shannon said...

This book sounds amazing. Our favorite Christmas tradition (well one of the many) is to buy a new, really special Christmas book each year. That way in time we will have TONS and when my children are grown, the plan is to have them split up the books and share them with their children. We'll see which ones I can part with :)

I love finding a quiet evening while the snow is falling outside and sit with a hot mug of steaming decaf coffee while I ponder the blessing of my savior being born and becoming the love of my life.
