Day 8 of our Home for the Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome back!  It's Day 7 on our Home for the Holidays blog hop!  Are you having fun?  I'm having a blast!  You will notice my posts may be posting later...  I'm out in Oregon, so I'm 2 hours behind MN time!!!  I'm out here teaching for 3 days!!!

Before I continue... I wanted to make sure you were all aware of my 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways!  Each day on our Facebook Page & on Instagram, we will be giving away something fun!  All you need to go is "like" our pages & leave a Holiday memory for a chance to win!  Here is the current giveaway....


Did you see Ali's sweet, sweet, wool reindeer!?  I don't think you will be able stop at making just one!  Before you know it, you will will have a heard of them just like Santa!  {My FAV is Rudolph, with the red Pom Pom nose!}


Ever wondered why the jolly old man in the big red suit is left cookies to fuel him on his "magical" night of delivering gifts to good girls & boys?!? Historians believe the tradition began during the Great Depression in the 1930's, as a way for parents to encourage their children to give and show gratitude for gifts they received.  This soon became a tradition!  Poor Santa... his belt can't get much tighter!!!


Christmas cookies have been around as long as I can remember!  I recall leaving out cookies & milk for Santa... and tradition passed on to my girls!  It seems like yesterday when we were leaving crumbs on the plate and dumping the milk to make it appear as the lovely Santa has been here!!!  Such good memories!!!!

Now that we are dreaming of Christmas cookies... I'll share Kathy, from The Cottage at Cardiff Farms recipe with you before you head to her blog!!  I know you will LOVE her project!  Santa, will too!!!  



Ho Ho Ho.... I'll see you back here tomorrow!
