  12. I have ALWAYS loved card catalogs at libraries. Don't know why, just do. Maybe because I've always LOVED libraries. ANYWAY, my traditions are few, but we get together and pig out until we hurt...

  14. I don't have a library drawer, but I have other containers that can be transformed into one. After all the embellishments are added to it, it will be wonderful!

  15. this is some fun paper! My favorite thing about the holidays is the time spent with family. We have cut way back on gift giving and concentrate more on being together, playing games and eating good food!

  16. The library drawer in beautiful, yes I can see everyone trying to find these to alter. For Christmas we go to mass on Christmas Eve and Santa shows up while we are gone so open presents then and can sleep in on Christmas morning. This custom might change this year because we will be at my sons house and we will follow his traditions, just can't wait to see my grandkids opening up their presents.

  26. We have an annual family baking day at my house, where all our immediate and extended family come to bake up a storm. Everyone from 2 to 92 pitches in to get the cookies baked, cut and frosted. It's always a day filled with remembering past holidays and making new memories!

  34. we have recently moved, so we have no traditions just yet. we don't know very many people. i think we will just settle in and watch the trees turn color, even though there are more pines than deciduous trees. ahem...

  35. Ooh la la! Love the projects! We have a tradition on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Girls Day Out is all about window shopping and getting ideas of what to buy for each other. The guys go to "the farm" a piece of property that we own in southern Indiana. They usually cut a Christmas tree for our inlaws.

  41. My family and I are cookie bakers. We make cookies every year to share with family and friends. I is a special time for me, I have two boys 18 and 22. They loved baking when they were young, but not so much the last couple of years. But they do it anyway, to make their mother happy. I am so very blessed.
