December the Fourth

(if you're looking for the sew mama sew giveaway it's right here.
but you might want to stick around for this one too)

Last night I took my kids to a local dairy that serves freshly made scones. This is something my family did at least once a year. There is usually a long line and a long wait to accompany. When I pulled up, the line looked pretty long. But by the time we got through the door, there wasn't hardly anyone waiting. I got to the counter to order my scones and they said it would be a few minutes, because they had to make more. Of course I was willing to wait. About 15 minutes later, I made mention that it had been a long while. My mom had joined us and said she was told it would be at least 30 minutes since the dough was raising. We waited an hour! Meanwhile, the kids are hungry and bored and was in tears by the time we actually got our scones.
Once the kids saw the scones, all was good!


Today I am giving away a Sentiments charm pack.

  2. For as long as I can remember, my mother has always read us a Night Before Christmas on Christmas Eve. Even as adults before the grandkids came, we would all sit around her and listen to her read. Last year she gave my kids a recording/book of her reading it. Such a special thing to have.

  5. Oyster stew on Christmas Eve. One year I tried to not make it and had a mutiny on my hands. Needless to say that was the last time I tried that.

  6. One of my favorite Christmas traditions is making cut out Christmas cookies. As kids, my siblings and I did it every year with our mom. Now, I do it every year with my kids. I really don't look forward to the mess of it all as a mom, but the kids just love it!

  9. I've moved away now, so can't do one of my favourites! I used to go wassailing with a local music group, over 5 nights in mid December, collecting money for selected charities in pubs. I always felt so festive when we started rehearsals.
