Share Your World Thursday...Linky

My Dear Friend Jessica is hosting a Linky Party Christmas Style! If you don't already follow her, DO! She's hilarious and is always doing some fun linky to make new friends!

That's easy! My first married Christmas  (still very much in love and very happy in every way as my marriage was a ripe 6 months old) my MIL {just imagine if you don't know what THAT stands for} gifted us with an enitre set of kitchen and bath towels that said..."Love is blind but marriage is a REAL eye opener." REALLY? Greg and I had our house painted a beautiful green and we used natural browns and whites as accents through out. No red. AnyWHERE. And the towels were a terrible damper on our first Christmas. Needless to say, they hit the spot! (Code for the DUMPSTER!)
Growing up, my family had this insane tradition to watch the 24 hour marathon of THE Christmas Story on TBS. I found it to be totally annoying....until I didn't do it anymore. Then I missed it. The marathon always starts at 8, so we would pop popcorn, grab out sleeping bags-or pillows and blankets- and the whole crew (like all 6 of my brothers and sisters and my parents) would pile up in the living room together. And how can you not love the grumpy dad and the dorky kid? The movie is classic. 
The End!

Choosing one is a joke, right? My grandmother makes the most incredible Christmas candy every year. Divinity, fudge, peanut clusters, pecan puffs, Christmas cookies, hard candy...etc. To. Die. For. I literally look forward to tearing up the sweets because they are such a treat. She spends days cooking all of this and it is all incredible! Hands down my favorite Christmas dessert!

Remember during this wonderful time of family and friends, Jesus is the REAL reason for the season!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

OkaY. Wait.. the towels said the marriage is a real eye opener? Please, just describe to me how you felt in the time of opening up that gift? Did you do a good "I love it" or was it a joke to begin with?

I wish my grandmother[s] were still around. {frown} Nobody bakes like grandmas do. Which of course if where my Mama got it from.

Merry Christmas Lindsey! & Greg and Gab! I'm so happy that you are linking up - I'm completely sucked into this blog world - one day my children will love reading it.
