Preparing for Christmas -  Making something cute to give away at Christmas time. I have seen these before but have never really made these but decided to make them this year. We usually go to my mother-in-law's house for Christmas. My husband has lots of simblings and thus many nieces and nephews and now those kids are married and have kids of their own. I live 5.3 hrs away and thus it's a problem taking all the food I need to take with us. My mom in law is getting older and I think that next year we will no longer meet at her house but we shall take turns between us and my husband's brothers and sister. It will be different since Holidays have always been at her house either Thanksgiving or Christmas or even for the 4th of July. It's tradition for us all but now it will be broken. So many great memories of our kids and their cousins playing excitingly around the house. Thanksgiving and Christmas will be at her house this year. Nothing stays the same forever. Life brings changes. How does your family celebrates Christmas or other holidays? Where do you go?

  1. That's a very good idea Angela.I like giving 'food' as a gift, wrap in a beautiful package like this one.

    Eh, a vida muda constantemente e a gente fica somente com as lembranças...
