  4. What a cute idea for the holidays!! One of my favorite Christmas traditions that I've recently began is watching a Charlie Brown Christmas on Christmas Eve. I just love the sincerity and the innocence of it.

  6. When we were growing up, my parents always let us open one gift on Christmas Eve after the candlelight service. I always loved the quiet of Christmas Eve. It felt like a secret waiting to be told. The feeling of Christmas Eve is somehow even more electric to me than Christmas morning.

  8. What a fun blog Kelly!
    My favorite holiday tradition is putting up the Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving and wrapping presents while watching National Lampoons Christmas. I also truly love Starbucks' red coffee cups! :)

  12. Favorite holiday tradition....there's a lot! I LOVE Christmas morning with my kiddos and all the fun at the grandparents, but Christmas Eve is probably the best! We always eat birthday cake for Jesus, read the Christmas story, get on our cheesy, matching, mama made jammies and watch the Polar Express and drink Cocoa at the exact time they do in the movie!!! FUN TIMES!!! :)

    Thanks for the giveaway! J&J is one of our all time favs around here too! And that's a cookbook my gourmet chef hubs NEEDS!!! You'd help me have my gifting done for him! :)

  14. My favorite Thanksgiving tradition was born 6 years ago. My beloved friends Karissa and Chris invited me to having Thanksgiving with them when they found out I would not be able to have Turkey Day with my family. I arrived at 5 pm on a Saturday after a 4+ hour drive, bringing tiramisu cheesecake and a couple selections of wine with me. The turkey was Chris's job, and should have been winding down as I was arriving. My darling Karissa was in charge of side dishes, leaving me with dessert. When I walked through Chris's door, the thawed Turkey Breast was in the sink, inside the wrapper. No sides were even on the counter. I was dumbfounded. They rushed to the store while I started the turkey. We ate the meal a course at a time, until the turkey was finally done at 10 pm. We stayed up far too late, drank all the wine, ate most of the tiramisu cheesecake and watched Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Now, every Thanksgiving, I have a slice of tiramisu cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory (not the same as homemade, but close enough), and as I sip wine, phone calls are traded, asking if the turkey is thawed, right around 9 pm local time.

    My friend Meigh Heyburn directed me to your blog because my passion for Julia Child is something about which I am very vocal, and I'm very grateful to her. I really enjoy your writings, and the idea that Julia Child's cook book could find a home with me, eases some of the homesickness I've experienced in moving 10+ hours away from my family this year. Thanks for the nostalgia, even if I don't win. :)
