A Tree from Grandpa Ned
My husbands' late grandfather owns several acres of land 3 hours away. Every Thanksgiving, our family carefully selects that one special tree to bring home with us. That very night, we put up the...
Memories of Christmas
Christmas time brings thoughts of my traditions as thoughts of my family always come to my mind. My family truly enjoyed Christmas as there was decorating the home inside and out, lots of baking, and gift...
The Christmas Eve Tree Hunt
4 years ago around Christmas time, we were blessed with the birth of our first son. Being new parents, it was hard for us to figure out how to squeeze in a shower everyday let alone try to prepare for the...
Christmas Brats
Lots of families have turkey or ham on Christmas. Not us--we have brats. There's no brat like a Christmas brat! Our Christmas Eve meal is a mishmash of favorites; spicy meatballs, party potatoes and champagne...
A Game of Sheepshead
On Christmas Eve, approximately an hour or so before we plan to open gifts someone will suggest a game of sheepshead. While we all enjoy playing cards, the REAL purpose of the game is to torture the younger...
Regifting the Bag
About six or seven years ago I received a sewing machine from my Mom for Christmas. Because the sewing machine was so large, my Mom wrapped the sewing machine in a handmade cloth bag she made to fit it...
Kick Off the Holidays
The Holiday season begins the Friday before St. Nick's day. That day, I get up early, bake 6+ types of Christmas cookies, then decorate the house. That evening, the Christmas lights are turned on for first...

One of my favorite Christmas traditions has always been setting up Grandpa's antique toy train around the Christmas tree at my Grandparents rural farm house. In fact, as far as I'm concerned the...
A Special Breakfast
For major holidays, breakfast would always include homemade Polish sausage. My father would make it, and as we were older, my siblings and I would help. I never forgot the smell of his sausage and no other...
The Christmas Cheese
Every Christmas, I make a point of buying a special ornament tied to my husband's cheese collection. I search until I can find one that he doesn't have that includes 'cheese' in the theme...
How to Spend More Time with Your Family This Holiday Season - Host a Caroling Party
Too often we forgo entertaining because of the mere thought of all of the preparation that is involved. And more is not better. Often we try to out do each other with lavish parties and expensive gifts...
The Night Before Christmas
Every year since I can remember my Dad reads the entire family "The Night Before Christmas" on Christmas Eve. After we eat our dinner, we turn on the fireplace, hang our stockings and all gather round his Lazy...
Homemade Wrapping Paper Made with Love
While commercial gift wrap is all pretty with pictures of Santa, snowmen and polar bears it just doesn't measure up to the homemade wrapping paper that has been a tradition at our house. Ever since my...
Christmas Eve Fondue
I grew up having fondue for dinner on Christmas Eve. It was the only day of the year that we had this special treat. My Mom would make up a wonderful cheesy fondue. We dipped in apples, bread, cubed ham and...
