Countdown to Christmas ... 12/17/2016

The holiday baking has started at my house!!!  

Today, I made our home made version of what is commonly known as nuts and bolts ... we call it Scrabble!  We make a big batch once a year at Christmas and munch on it until it's all gone.  (It keeps good in air tight containers.)

(Photo:  Scrabble spread out on a towel cooling before being put into air tight containers.)

I had never heard of Scrabble until I met my husband.  It was a family favorite in his family and was made every year sometime either right before Thanksgiving or before Christmas.  After my husband and I married we brought that tradition into our family and now our children are enjoying the same tradition in their families.  

Making Scrabble at our house signals/screams 'Christmas!'  Is there something that you do that signals/screams 'Christmas' at your house?

I also worked on the Christmas cards that will be hand delivered at church tomorrow and with my husband's help got them ready to deliver.

What did you do on your journey toward Christmas today?

Countdown to Christmas ... 12/16/2016

Our  church's ladies Christmas party was a success!  Nine of us gathered in my small little home and we partied!

Everyone brought finger foods, deserts and a beverage ... yum, there was some good food at my house ... just saying!

Everyone brought a gift to exchange.  This year we decided to stuff Christmas socks with stocking stuffer type things and exchange those. (We have a $10 spending limit.) 

(Photo: Most everyone showing off their christmas socks.)

We played games ... Christmas Bingo, a Point Game and I had everyone to guess how many decorations were on my tree.  Of course there were prizes for all the winners as well as a 'take home/thank you for coming' gift as well.  (These are the gifts/prizes I've been wrapping and pretting up this week that I purchased all year long at clearance prices.)

Everyone seemed to have a good time ... I know I did!
