We are enjoying this blessed season of Advent here at Windy Ridge. Quite a bit busier than last year at this time when I was chair-ridden with pregancy sickness. Baking, reading the advent story, parties and recitals. We have been dreaming up Christmas Eve party plans and I think this year we will do an Italian menu.  Each family is putting together a basket with handmade and items found in the home to exchange. I am really looking forward to having the clan over.  What will you be doing on Christmas Eve? I would love to hear about your traditions.

Hark the herald angels sing, Glory to the newborn king.  Peace on earth, and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled!

  1. What a wonderful and thoughtful idea. How do you exchange the baskets ? Do you make one for each family? Love following your family. You always make things so special and full of meaning.

  2. Love you and your sweet family 🙂 My husband’s family is Italian, so every Christmas Eve we have the traditional Italian family dinner at the in-laws. Homeade Spaghetti and Clams (no meat on Christmas Eve), and we all exchange one gift. I adore your idea of homeade and “found” items – so thoughtful!
    Such a special time of year….so glad you are able to enjoy it to the fullest this year 😉 Warm holiday wishes and blessings to you all XOX

  3. Tina, each family will make one basket and we exchange with random drawing.
