Merry Christmas to all of you wonderful people I have met who have become friends and to everyone who shares their lives through beautiful writings.
Blogging on WordPress was one of the best things I did for myself in 2013.
One of my favorite bloggers, Kelly at are you finished yet?, hosted a giveaway a few weeks ago and while I hardly ever win anything, I won her giveaway of the Memories with Santa: Through the Years” Book! Merry Christmas to me! I was thrilled because I had always wanted to put together some kind of Christmas photo album showing all of the happy memories of Christmas’ past to put out each year but the idea of putting together an album or albums of all those pictures that would have be dug out and scanned was way too daunting.
“Kathy Schoenekase and Melissa Groff are two moms from St. Louis who wanted a way to preserve their Santa photos in an easy, no fuss scrapbook that can be pulled off the shelf whenever the family wants to take a trip down memory lane. Their slogan is, “One Story. One Place.” Everything is already done for you; all you have to do is pop in your pictures. Voila! You have one less thing to have mommy guilt over.”
~Kelly, are you finished yet?
Instead, this book, from through the years arrived and all I had to do was order the few pictures of my kids with Santa from a one hour photo store, pick up the pictures then easily affix them onto the pages with the adhesive stickers sent along with the book. It was so easy and gives me that Christmas photo book I have always wanted lying on the side table. Maybe one day I will spend the time to gather all the Christmas photos from my childhood all the way to today and display them, but since that is doubtful, this is the perfect solution.
I hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas filled with love, joy and contentment.
