I wasn't sure I would do a top favorites posts for the year, because I just got back to blogging here the beginning of August. But when I looked at our most popular posts, I discovered an interesting cross section of topics; a garden, a DIY project, crafts, a recipe, and a pictorial essay....an eclectic mix that truly portrays what this blog is about! So, here it is...
Ok, so it's not quite the Cat In the Hat...but I'm no Dr. Seuss!
Being storm stayed on Christmas Day wasn't part of our plans...in fact we had opened our gifts the day before because we didn't plan to be home at all that day! But when a blizzard hits, you just have to make the best of it!
We've had an early start here, and already opened our gifts! I'm enjoying a cup of coffee in my new Tim Horton's cup, watching the weather forecast, and hoping the expected blizzard passes us by, or at least waits until tomorrow night to hit. I hope everyone has a great Christmas, wherever you are!
I don't expect many will be around over the next few days, so I thought I'd send out a Christmas greeting today. I want to thank everyone who has supported Manitoba Gardens through commenting and sharing posts, and by following our FB page. Brian, (our main photographer) Danica, (my video creator) and I really do appreciate all of you, and we welcome feedback.
This past few months has been a hodge podge of topics as we find our way through this blogging world, but we hope you all find something of interest here. We're looking for ward to the new year, especially spring time, when we can get back to touring gardens!
For now...Stay warm and have a Merry Christmas, making memories and passing down family traditions. Most of all, may you know the one whose birth we celebrate. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
With just a few days until Christmas, we've come to the end of our Christmas Craft and Gift Series. I hope you've enjoyed these posts, and perhaps found some that you would like to add to your own family traditions. Today, I'll be sharing one final project, as well as a slideshow.
All of my blogging friends have been posting Christmas gift guides, and after the nasty week of snow storms we've had, I decided to post a gift guide filled with gifts to warm the hearts, toes, and nose of someone you love!
Are you looking for something different to do this Christmas? One of our many Christmas activities from years gone by has been making a pinate. It's been several years since we've done one, so some of these pictures are from previous Christmas seasons.
It's a slow process that takes a few days, but the kids have fun making it, and even more fun breaking it open and eating the candy!
