It’s Aloha Friday - Week 11

December 7, 2007

What is your favorite holiday activity?

Our favorite activity is decorating gingerbread houses. We get all the cousins together and each child is given their own house. They can get as messy as they want and usually more candy goes into their stomachs than on the house itself. It’s so much fun to watch!

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants!

Aloha for stopping by Christine, Wendy, Grace, Jen, Renee, Holly Schwendiman, Marie, Cathi, Feefifoto, Deana, Summer, Write From Karen, Witchypoo, Rach (Heart of Rachel), Deb - Mom of 3 Girls, Baby Advice, Sher :), Charlotte (Charmed Life), and Meg

I love decorating! It just seems like the world is so peaceful when everyone comes together for the Holidays!


Deb - Mom of 3 Girls said:

Doing the advent calendar(s) with the girls - they love to count down the days until Christmas!

I also loved making Christmas cookies as a kid and hope to start doing that with the girls this year too. :)

Before anything else, sorry if I registered on your Mr. Linky twice. I made a mistake on the first time so I entered the right one after. Maybe you can erase the 1st link so the others won’t be confused. Thanks!

I have never made a gingerbread house before but I’ve seen beautiful ones being sold at the mall. It must be a fun experience designing your own gingerbread house.

My favorite holiday activity is exchanging gifts and opening them on Christmas eve.

I love to sit around the fire with the family, listen to Christmas music, drink hot cocoa and just BE together. (Does that make sense?)

Kailani - I hope your eye surgery was smooth and you can SEE all of us clearly! Get some rest!

Hmmmm nothing is coming to mind. Maybe baking cookies or making treats to share with neighbors and friends. Sometimes I get a couple gals over here baking with me, sometimes it’s just the kids. sometimes its myself, it’s fun and it’s FUNNER giving things away, people are so happy to receive.

I wish I had the knack of making a good gingerbread house. The grandbabies and I made a gingerbread tree last week and we had a delightful time. I even posted a photo of the edible little tree!!

I think my favorite is every year, on my mom’s side, all the kids put on a Christmas program of singing, piano playing, drama and any other talent they might possess! My uncle even played a saw one year!!! My sister & I started this tradition years ago at my grandparents’ house, and now it’s fun to see our kids do it every year!

Wendy said:

Getting the tree is our favorite thing. Every year, we go to a small tree farm just outside of town and take our time walking through until we find just the right one to bring home to decorate.
