Merry Christmas and Giveaway Coming!

Hi There!

I hope everyone is enjoying their Christmas celebrations! I had a wonderful time at my sister's house with my whole family for Christmas Eve. For the first time ever, we not only exchanged nice gifts, but we also exchanged goofy, "white elephant" gifts. There was so much laughter going on, my stomach is sore this morning! Such fun! :)

Today is a quiet day with my hubby and two boys. We've opened our gifts and will soon be eating a yummy Christmas brunch that my hubby cooks every year. Then just putting the feet up and relaxing after a long, hard week at work.

I also wanted to let you all know that I only need one more follower to hit 200, then I'm planning a giveaway. I'll be picking up some fun goodies at Archiver's soon, with the gift card I received today! :) It's time I pay it forward, because you have all been a wonderful blessing in my life! Stay tuned - in the next week or two I'll have all the goodies gathered.

Off I go now, to wrap myself up in my totally soft, cream colored, fuzzy new blanket/throw that I received from my sis! Sooo cozy! Can you say nap time?

Merry Christmas wishes to each of you! :)

Merry Christmas Barb....I came by to read your post and saw that you only needed one more follower and I signed up but it didn't change your number??
It may have something to do with my google account, for the last six months I've had to add my flckr page because my google crashes otherwise...)
Glad to hear that you had a nice Christmas. After reading your post you've got me thinking on warm blankets on the couch :)

Sounds like a great day Barb. I spend mine outside ~ starting with a barbeque brunch with a glass of Moet, followed a few hours later with roast lamb, roast veggies and broad beans and then plum pudding...all in around 24 degrees C. quite different to your part of the world. Peace be with you my friend
