What a loveerly giveaway!

I love Christmas too! I love the gift choosing (finding something that fits the person), the food making (the tantalising smells...), the fact that we are celebrating an amazing gift; Jesus coming into the world to save sinners, the joys snow brings (or the fun we have digging ourselves out of it...) and just the excitement that the word Christmas makes you feel! =)

Stepheny Weaver said...

My favorite Christmas movie is "The Little Drummer Boy" I remember watching this as a child and how humble and sweet the little boy was. It reminds me of Jesus and how humble and loving He is!

Adrienne Weaver (Steph's sister_ said...

My favorite Christmas song is "O Holy Night"

Sophie said...

To me... Christmas means Sharing time with family,and focusing on the birth of Christ.
CHRISTmas has become SOOOO commercialized it is absolutly rediculous! Santa Claus, Reindeer, presents.... get get getting.... God GAVE His Son for us, and does the world ever want to give? NO! They just want to GET! What happend to The Manger and baby Jesus? I mean that is why we have CHRISTmas!

Anyway, those are my thoughts on CHRISTmas!

BTW, I love your new template/header! Exactly my point! Keep CHRIST in CHRISTmas! (NOT NOT NOT Xmas! That is BLOCKING out Christ's name!) SHAME ON AMERICA!

Stepheny Weaver said...

Things I love about CHRISTmastime the CHRISTmas tree,the candy canes ,the hot chocolate, the joy of giving, Mangers, icicles, lights, SNOW!

I remember 3 years ago, on Christmas morning, we had everyone over for Christmas breakfast... and I felt bad ALL day. Finally while opening gifts I threw up.... come to find out, I had strep throat AND stomach flu! ON CHRISTMAS! BLah... I never want that again!

Jyll said...

Stepheny is really trying to win to give this as a gift to her mother!!

I remember being a child and waiting at the top of the stairs at night to hear what was going on downstairs--I ended up in bed because it was too late and my brothers were too noisy and mom and dad could hear us.

Needless to say there was always a special place under the tree for each of us kids by mornings light!

Sophie said...

I listened to all the songs mentionned and I think I prefer what child is this!

Anonymous said...

Just stopping in today!! ;) I'm sitting here listening to my Christmas CD ('Oh tidings of comfort and joy'...can't remember the NAME of the song! :P), and thinking about going to write some Christmas cards out! :)

Jodi said...

Just one more ;)

Something I always love about Christmas morning ... my Mother-in-law always makes cherry muffins and they are so yummy !!!

Steaky said...

What Christmas means to me...
As a Child: gettin' the loot from Santa, family parties, chips and dip with punch on the side, grandpa getting peanuts as a present and him totally loving it!
As a Teen: embarrassed to see my relatives, watching the Christmas tree get thrown out into the snow, celebrating it with a friend and her family, wishing things were different
As a twenty-something: Knowing who Christ is and understanding why he was born, Christmas ornaments as presents sent from NJ, opening presents and holiday dinners again with family, knowing what true love is and who it truly comes from
As a mom: Pure joy

Stepheny Weaver said...

Just making my daily blog rounds and couldn't forget to comment on this post!

A favorite Christmas gift that I got last year was a charm bracelet... one charm said "Stepheny Christmas '09" and there was another charm that was an accordion. (since I play that instrument) and for my birthday in Jan. I got a piano charm. I'll probably get another one this year. :)

Stepheny

Stepheny Weaver said...

I really like the "Celtic Christmas" four pack CD's.... they are so beautiful!

Steph

Stepheny Weaver said...

I never get board talking about Christmas... (can you tell???!!!)

I love the beautiful snowfall that we usually get on Christmas morning... big fat beautiful white flakes! :)

Steph

Stepheny Weaver said...

Every year since 2008 we've gone caroling....

We make fudge and cookie plates and place a Candy Cane and a Gospel Tract on top.... then we pass them out and sing at least three songs.... (we usually do about ten plates for ten houses of people that we've got soul-winning to or friends and family)

Sometimes it is so cold, but I never get tired of being a blessing to someone! It is such a joy to watch the happy/encouraged look on their faces and even see some of them cry when we leave!

I LOVE CHRISTMAS TIME!

Steph

One of my favorite things about this time of year is snow...and we're getting some right now!! It's snowed off and on today and now it's starting to pile up--not much (probably just an inch or two right now), but it's a light powdery snow and so pretty!!

Stepheny Weaver said...

I enjoy playing in the snow during Christmas time... it is always fun to play in the snow... but doing it towards Christmas time makes you feel... well.... happy and cheerful and excited that Christmas is only 11 days away!

Sophie said...

My favourite christmas memory was when I was 10 or something like that. We were at my uncle's and it was Christmas day. My mom and my aunt started calling our names (my 2 cousins where around the same age). So we looked at each other asking: what did we do? (you know like we never knew why we were grounded) We went to meet them in the living room not wanting to go and there it was: it had snowed during the night a good 5 inches!!! This was really rare and it was so beautiful to watch... and well we were not grounded either!!! (how it was easy to get good news back then!)

Hellllooooo, Ginger!!! ;)

Stepheny Weaver said...

Christmas Memory....

In 2003 we went to FL for Christmas. We rented a condo, and stayed there. (we drove... which we probably will NEVER do again if we go to FL!) We had our cousins over almost every day... we made fudge, and played lots of games!

STepheny

Stepheny Weaver said...

I'll never forget the Christmas that we made Homemade Candy for everyone (neighbors, teachers, people at my dads work) we made so much, I didn't even want to hear the word "candy"!

Steph

Stepheny Weaver said...

Some more favorite songs...

Go Tell
Everything Changed That Night
Angels We Have Heard on High
The First Noel and
Born in My Heart

STepheny

Stepheny Weaver said...

I also remember last year, we made fudge for everyone (again, teachers, neighbors, and workers) I usually licked the spoon or pan when it was cool, and taste tested along the way (you can't give someone something that YOU haven't tried!) I was SOOOO sick of fudge... they had it at the Christmas party, and someone offered me some.... I thought I was going to throw up!

Stepheny
