Our family tradition is just hanging out with family and having a good time. Thanks for the fun challenge, I really enjoyed playing.


Hi Nikki, sorry I've been slacking lately, but I do have a very big post up tonight with most of the things I've created with the Very Beary Christmas set. I have also posted the link on my FB page and shared this contest in the FB group "blog candy" Have a wonderful Christmas!

My fav Christmas tradition is having someone new get to play Santa every year and pass out gifts to all the grandkids! As each grandchild has gotten older they also get the chance to be "Santa" for the night!

Hi Nikki, just posted my layout and put it on my blog and invited everyone from facebook to go check you out.

My favorite holiday tradition is making my grandmothers bread - it is a cinnamon raisen bread and the recipe makes 7-8 loaves. I make a whole batch for my Aunt and Uncle in NH so he can have something of his mom for Christmas and then I make another batch for my dad, brothers and sisters..never enough for me to get one, but that is ok :). It is an all day process but so worth it when I see everyone enjoying it. Makes me feel like my Gram is right there with me when I am making it.

Merry Christmas my friend - hope you have a great holiday. Looking forward to all the new designs you are coming up with - so excited!!
