my 1st give-away!

I am so thrilled to host a give-away from my friends and super-crafty family, the Floods. Remember the Floods? We exchanged photos for wood works--animals and cars. Their creations are top-notch quality and absolutely beautiful. You can find more of their work on their etsy site--LockStockAndBarrel.

To have a chance to win this whimsical snowman, please leave a comment with your name and your favorite holiday memory on this post by 12 PM Sunday, December 12th. I'll randomly pick a winner this Monday, December 13th.

Very cute snowman!! One of my favorite memories is from the 2nd or 3rd grade, we wore white capes with silver trim and we sang "Here comes Suzy Snowflake" at the Christmas program.

I love this! One of my favorite holiday memories is of all my relatives gathering at my aunt's house in boulder. Everyone would come, my cousin, uncle, grandpa, great-grandma, etc, and we would all make gingerbread cookies with all the fixins.so much fun!!

I love that snowman! So cute! One of my favorite holiday memories is of my grandpa dressing up as Santa when I was 8 yrs old. He went all out and tried not to let me know it was him but as soon as I heard the ho ho ho, I knew. He passed away when I was 19 but I will hold that memory in my heart forever.

My favorite holiday memory is from when I was about 7. My parents moved my sisters bed to block my bedroom door, so I couldn't sneak downstairs. Being the sly, skeaky, uber curious girl I was, I crawled under the bed and slowly went downstairs. The lights on the tree were still lit, and it was snowing outside. I can remember the first thing I saw was a smurf puppet in my stocking. I grabbed it and hugged it tight. I walked over to the tree and looked at all of the presents, then went to the kitchen and looked out the back door. I can so clearly remember watching the snow fall and holding my puppet. I don't remember any of the other presents I got that year, but the memory of the snow falling and the puppet is just so perfect.

I remember decorating the Christmas tree, drinking hot coco and singing rocking around the Christmas tree... LOVE that song!

My favorite Holiday memory was when my parents took us ice skating. As a family of 6 we didn't do a lot of things that cost money, but one year we all went ice skating at crown center, near Christmas time, and everything was decorated so beautifully, from the tree to the shops!!

Cutest snowman ever!

I LOVE Lock Stock & Barrel, and that snowman, and Christmas! In fact, I love Christmas so much that it is difficult to narrow down a favorite memory. My favorite general memory is just the entire day of Christmas. On Christmas Eve, I would sleep so fitfully because I was so excited. I wasn't allowed to wake my parents before 6 AM. But as soon as I would wake up and the house would be calm and quiet, I would creep down the hallway. The Christmas tree would be all lit up (the only night it was allowed to stay lit all night). The stockings would be stuffed. The lights my mom always hung around the big mirror in our living room would be lit. The entire scene would just be so glittery and perfect and beautiful! I would just stare. I would have never dared to touch anything for fear that I would break the magic of it. Sometimes I would lie down on the couch and stare at everything until I would fall asleep again. At 6:00, I would wake my sister, then we would wake our parents. We'd open our gifts at home, then eat and get dressed as fast as we could and race to Grandma's house! The race was to be the first family to Grandma's house and we pretty much always won. Then at Grandma's, there would be family, food and festivities all day long. It was by far my favorite day of the year. :D I still get a little sad that we can't be there at Christmas now, with my whole family 600 miles of possible snow away!

When Kerry was about 3 years old we spent Christmas Eve at my Mom's. All his presents were in the trunk of my car. I was soooooo tired and couldn't wait for Kerry to go to sleep so I could get them out and go to bed myself. Every three minute he would pop out of be and say "Is he here yet?"

I missed the deadline for winning the snowman, but I'll share one of my favorite Christmas memories anyway. We had a tradition of going out in the woods to cut down our Christmas tree, and the fact that my mom was 41 weeks pregnant was not going to change that tradition. We trecked all over the woods trying to find the perfect tree and when we finally found it, we were very far away from the "beaten path." Instead of hiking back through the woods, we decided that we would just try crossing the muddy field. I was 12, so my dad and I were holding the tree above our heads so it wouldn't get muddy, while my mom was helping my 6-year-old sister try to make it through the mud. I think we all lost our boots a time or two. My mom started contracting. My sister peed her pants. All the while, my mom's main concern was that the tree didn't touch the mud. We finally made it back to the house and we were all so covered in mud that mom made us strip down outside. The tree remained mud-free, mom stopped contracting, and we all had a great story to tell.
