Get ready for The Week Before Christmas Celebration!

Week Before Christmas Celebration FB cover

I’m super excited, as I work to prepare The Week Before Christmas Celebration on the blog! We will be running it from Dec. 18th till Christmas Day on the blog and on FB Fan Page. Make sure you have subscribed to both as somethings may take place in one and not the other… we will be bouncing around.

We will be sharing Christmas recipes, Stories, Traditions, have GIVEAWAYS, and more.

If you would like your recipe or story to be FEATURED during that week, please email me for details or submit it no later than Dec. 14th by noon EST. If you are a blog owner and wish to collaborate and join in on the celebration, contact me as well and see how you can be a part of our giveaways, etc.

There will be lots of prizes throughout the week and at random times, so that everyone can participate whether you’re  morning person or night owl like me. 🙂

I hope you will join us in the discussions, share a recipe or story, and I can’t wait to see who wins during the giveaways. More information to come. For now, please help us spread the word about our blog and the FB page, so that we can reach and share with more. We hope you’re being encouraged and inspired through the blog, that you’re getting some relevant information, and that you think it’s worth sharing it. 🙂

Please don’t forget to share it! When you share with your friends and family, or on social media, it helps our community and blog grow, so that we are able to bring more fun events your way, while we bring you the encouragement, inspiration, and information, I hope you’re already getting from us.

FREE printable: Thanksgiving Activity Place mat for kids and adults.

I decided to make these for our girls and decided to share it on here. Basically it’s set to be printed on “legal” size paper and you’re done. Kids will write things they are thankful for in the turkey’s feathers and then draw a picture of everyone together for the holiday. This might be something you give kids to do while you finish getting dinner ready and then they can read what they are thankful… the adults might want to join in as well.

You can also keep these year after year, to be able to look back on what everyone was thankful for years past. If you make them ahead of time, a day or two as a side activity with the kids, you can laminate them before Thanksgiving dinner and everyone can read theirs. Don’t forget to add the date if you plan on keeping them! I left the date out on them so they can be saved and used year after year and be compared later on. 🙂

Click on the image, right click it and save. Feel free to share it, pin it, fwd it.
