An As Promised Post♥

Hey everyone!

As promised in the former blog, I will tell you about family Christmas traditions and how I celebrate! Also tell you all about some improvements to the blog! Lets get started by talking about the Holidays!

Every Christmas there is much to be celebrated. After Thanksgiving we put up all of our lights, decor, and break out the Christmas music! Before we know it, its Christmas eve. We go to my Uncles church and afterwords we eat a wonderful dinner! When dinner, games, and talking are over for the evening we go to the nativity scene in Columbus. It has always been a tradition of my family’s, and it is super fun!

When Christmas day rolls around we get up really early! Usually at least 6AM! It adds more excitement to the day to get up early. We turn on all the Christmas lights and us kids wake up the parents. We open all the gifts and before you know it my other sister and her husband are hear! We do gifts with them, and wait until later when all the rest of the relatives come. We eat dinner, open gifts, play games, and laugh alot! At the end of the day when everyone goes home, we think of how the day went and how much fun we had!

Now, that was our traditions! The second thing I want to tell you all about is some of the updates to the blog. If you have been looking around recently you will have noticed that there are some more pages for you to check out. For those of you who have not, they are as follows:

Music: This page is were you will find all things music. From new covers of songs, my favorite songs, polls, and a place to express your music views!

Books: This page will tell you all about the books I have read, am reading, book reviews, and creates a place for you to talk about your recent finds in the book world.

DIY crafts: You will find craft ideas, and things that are sper simple for you to make!

Recipes: You will find recipes from different time periods, my favorite food/recipes, and you can even share your recipes!

I will hopefully have a post a week in each on (or at least 2) their specific topic. So, make sure to check back to each page daily! And don’t forget to share my blog with all your friends!

An up and coming Christmas and an oppertunity for you!

Hello out there! Sorry for so few posts! I realized yesterday that I had not posted since June! I suppose that’s because after June was when summer really started up, and as many know summer is when our farm thrives. Fairs, shows, washing chickens, etc. This year was a pretty successful show year, and our little farm really showed that it’s animals (and people!) could be successful! A couple of my best achievements:

2 first place showmanship at Ohio State fair(poultry),

1 place showmanship county fair, plus Master showman at county fair(poultry),

Best of show alpaca,

3rd place showmanship Ohio National Poultry show,

and the best for last….Grand Champion Continental at the Ohio National Poultry show!! Woot woot!

Now those were just some, and only mine! My sister did very well this year too! 1st in showmanship’s, grand champion large fowl, etc…Now that I have gone over that, it’s time to talk about the up and coming! It is nearly Christmas (just 16 days!)! I can hardly believe how the year has flown by and that it is nearly 2013. It seems that just yesterday we were all gathered around the Christmas tree laughing and opening gifts.

Now I want to do something a little different for this post. Rather than me just talking about what my family does for Christmas, I want to here about you! Let me know how you celebrate your Christmas or any other holiday you celebrate in the comments below! The more comments the better! After you all have told me about what you are doing, I will write another post about how my family celebrates. So go ahead, type away!
