12 Days of Christmas Blog Challenge: Day 1

Monday, November 22, 2010


Every year for the holidays our family gets together in our hometown around New Years. We have a HUGE family - there were 45 present this year for Thanksgiving and that was missing a lot. NY in recent years has been the best time to try to get most everyone together. Most families play "the game" so I'm sure you're familiar with the rules, but the variation we do for our family is that the gift has to be home made. It's pretty cool to see what everyone comes up with. We have everything from holiday crafts to pies or jerky (my hubby) to wood work. It's always a lot of fun to see the ideas plus to watch everyone conspire with each other to get the one they want!! Ha ha!!
