Funtastic Friday #260

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and
that 2020 will be one of the happiest new years! 

Do you ever make a wish for the new year? 
For yourself or someone else?
Maria explains the history behind making a wish and exchanging well wishes
as a part of New Year celebrations. 
I've never heard of this tradition but love the sentiment.
How nice would it be to have a jar of well wishes from your family and friends,
 just for you for the new year?!
She has some cute printables too for your wishes.

I just bought some clearenced tinsel garland 
to make a 2020 for this year's New Year's festivities.

Now for the last link party of 2019...
Looking forward to all your DIY inspiration in 2020 too!

Funtastic Friday #259

I'm battling a cold,
but that won't keep me down! No time for it.
Y'all had so many great ideas from last week's party!
Hard to choose just one...

DIY Christmas Crackers/Noel & Joy - So Much Better With Age

I've always thought Christmas crackers would be a fun tradition for Christmas Eve.
Jaime has all the details on how to make your own.
What traditions do you have?
We always make cinnamon rolls
and drop them off at friends with a carol sung.
On Christmas Eve we have a big dinner,
read the Christmas story in the Bible,
get a new pair of PJs, 
and a special gift that is more Christ centered, 
share our thoughts on the "reason for the season",
set out cookies for Santa
and just sit with the lights low, tree lights glowing 
and doze off watching a Christmas music special
 as we wait for kids to fall asleep.

Merry Christmas!

Funtastic Friday #258

I'm almost done with all the Christmas shopping!!
I'm just waiting for one more thing to go on sale Saturday.
I've got to mail a few packages and wrap the last presents.
We decided to do a New Years card this year, 
so I'm scheduling a photo shoot for after Christmas.
I'm trying to get everything bought, prepped, delivered and cleaned
before late next week when one of our kids returns from an 18 month church mission in Brazil.
We are beyond excited!

Christmas tree puff pastry appetizerWe'll have more relatives in town for the Christmas holiday.
We're writing up a menu for Christmas Eve.
Lois' festive puff pastry appetizer is so fun!
I'm going to have to make this for our crowd. 

Here are 25 more ideas to make your Christmas festive.

Let's get to this week's party....

Funtastic Friday #257

It's cookie season!
What are your favorites? Do you have traditional holiday cookies you bake?
I have to say my ultimate favorite cookie is good ol' chocolate chip, 
but during the holiday season we have to make peanut blossoms and sugar cookies.
We seem to always make Swedish Rossettes for school--
sharing a cookie from your heritage.
As a kid, I always loved the coconut wreaths my mom would make, 
but I've never been able to duplicate those cookies as good as she made them.
I'm always up for trying out a new cookies variety.
Especially a soft cookie.
 Jenny has a soft ginger cookie that's a must to try.

Soft Ginger Cookies Recipe - Perfect for Christmas baking! on Mommy Evolution
My good friend just had her annual cookie exchange.
I love getting 12 varieties of cookies.
They sure come in handy for a crowd, when you have a party and need a quick treat to bring
 and just to please the kids at home.
At the cookie exchange,
I always bring my White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies.

You will love these!

Let's get the link party started!
This week on Funtastic Friday....
