Christmas Shop At Silver Dollar City

Posted 06-21-2008 at 06:29 AM by Gingerbug (Seasonal Celebrations)

Just wanted all to know...I'll be absent for about a week as we are leaving tomorrow (Sunday)....not for the ocean....BIG SIGH.....I LOVE the ocean...but for a short trip to Bennett Springs/Lebanon, Missouri....for yes of all things TROUT fishing...yes that is what I said fishing....good grief....doesn't even come close to my beloved ocean!!! But it is what it is...my brother in law has a camper there...yes...air conditioning, bathroom etc...none of this "roughing it" for me...so the stay is FREE...which the gas to get there alone is a real killer!! BUT all is not lost....because there is shopping at the Lake, a wonderful water park...where I can pretend I am at the ocean when I sit in the wave pool, a trip to Bass Pro (now you know that one's on my top ten)....a great night out...at a wonderful local restaraunt called Lamberts....where they throw fresh rolls at you (yes it must be a hill billy custom) AND then of course my favorite...a trip to Silver Dollar City and then nestled...

The Magic of Friendship

Posted 06-14-2008 at 09:22 PM by Gingerbug (Seasonal Celebrations)

Here is one of the Twelve Magic Elf Celebrations....Number 1...the Magic of Friendship

One of the most rewarding aspects of life is friendship. Magic Elves present many avenues for enriching and celebrating friendships. So lets start out our holiday season focusing on friendship. What ways can we use the Magic Elf concept to deepen our relationships with friends? How can we find time to enjoy being with others, get a few things accomplished, and create memories that will stay with us forever?

Elf Friendship Tea: Consider hosting an Elf Friendship Tea. There are several recipes out there for Friendship tea or serve different flavored teas. A lot of Christmas-y ones are available. Make this an early holiday tradition starting late November or the first of December. Relaxing with friends and enjoying tea, sconces, and other delicacies. And don’t forget to rename one or all of the teas with an “elf name”. Create invitations from the Elves and mail them or hand deliver...

Christmas Through Life

Posted 06-13-2008 at 06:50 PM by Gingerbug (Seasonal Celebrations)

Christmas through life....it seems that the love of Christmas stays with me through life but its essence changes with the passing of the years. What does this mean?

Well as a tiny tot...from a family without much money...Christmas was a time to receive something extra special...something out of the ordinary that was not a part of day to day life...

As a teenager Christmas meant getting to see people happy and laughing ...enjoying each other...and of course still a gift or two.

As a young adult with small children Christmas was about creating a special happy time...with memories of Christmas lights, pretty packages, and good things to eat...

As an older adult with older kids (LOL)...Christmas was about helping make memories and connections and moving away from the it's ALL about gifts and goodies...more toward it is better to give than receive.

As a Grandmother... Christmas is about people NOT presents...not to say that...
