Countdown to Christmas...Day 2 & Week 1 Blog Contest
This morning I woke up to find that the snow they were predicting had arrived! A fresh layer of white snow was covering everything!! Yeah, the first snow of the season!!! Mike and I went out this morning to play in it and pick up doughnuts. Now we are back at the apartment, enjoying our doughnuts and tea and listening to Christmas music. I just love this time of year!! Here is a great and simple recipe for those of you who do get snow to enjoy:
Vanilla Slush - Mix together a large bunch of snow (make sure it's not yellow!), sweetened condensed milk, and a dash of vanilla extract and enjoy!
This time of year is full of family traditions. My family has a few, like getting to open one present on Christmas Eve and the rest on Christmas morning, or one of my mom and I's new favorite traditions, going shopping the day after Christmas to pick up all of our Christmas supplies and decorations for the following year at half price! So that brings me to my first blog contest in my Countdown to Christmas. What are some of your family holiday traditions? Share them in the comments section of this post by Saturday, December 8th. A winner will be chosen at random and announced on Sunday, December 9th. The winner will receive my Sample Soap Gift Set with the smells of the season: Spiced Pear, Balsam Pine, Peppermint, Vanilla, and Orange Spice. A great item to keep for yourself or give as a gift!
