RainyDayArt gives us the topic: Easter is April 4, what family traditions do you do for Easter?

Ever since we moved here, we've had a big Easter egg hunt with the kids. We fill nearly 100 plastic eggs with candy (sometimes coins), and before the kids wake up, Jacqueline wanders around our 3 acres to hide them all. As the kids get up, they have to find their baskets in the house, which usually have a few unwrapped candies (jelly beans) and things too big for eggs (a bigger chocolate bunny, some peeps, and webkinz this year).

Then when they're all up, they gather in the kitchen and we give them the low-down: how many eggs they each can find (used to be 25, now the packages of plastic eggs don't come with so many in them so it's down to 21 this year...), where they might be (in the woods, in the house...), etc.... Some years, we've given the younger girls a 5 to 10 minute head start; this year they all took off at once!


Some years, there has still been snow on the ground (as you can see in the photo above), and one year, the snow was so deep, we postponed it until June! XD (It was the earliest time we could find the time when the weather was nice enough!) This year was perfect for it! ^-^

These were one of my step-father's specialties; he never made them big enough in my opinion, but then I guess I could eat more, with less guilt... ^-^

Chocolate Rum Balls
3 1/4 cups crushed vanilla wafers
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
3 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/2 cup rum
  1. In a large bowl, stir together the crushed vanilla wafers, 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar, cocoa, and nuts. Blend in corn syrup and rum.

  2. Shape into 1 inch balls, and roll in additional confectioners' sugar. Store in an airtight container for several days to develop the flavor. Roll again in confectioners' sugar before serving

The holiday season will soon be here - what's your favorite holiday movie or special? Why?

I used to love cuddling on the sofa with a lap cat watching holiday movies and TV specials. Today it's not the same. I used to get so excited when this would come on the TV:



But now, you can DVR it, buy the DVD (have some), search it up on YouTube (hee, I think I did that...), get it shipped from NetFlix (do this every year)... and watch those things any old time.

But I *still* have favorites! Of course I can't limit it to just one, I love too many! So here's my top ten...

10. The Little Drummer Boy - My favorite song as a child made into a TV special... awesome!
9. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer - Who doesn't love this?
8. Frosty the Snowman - I still say *Messy, messy, messy* in that voice... XD
7. A Charlie Brown Christmas - The ending still makes me tear up...
6. Miracle on 34th Street - Not just tearing up with this one, bawling...
5. Will Vinton's Clay-mation Christmas - Full of awesome holiday music!
4. How the Grinch Stole Christmas - This was a favorite of both my mom and me, we can even recite lines! Hee!
3. The Little Princess - Not really a Christmas movie per se, but one that always gives me the Christmas spirit...
2. The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus - This is actually a book I read every year, and I haven't seen the special since it aired in the 80s, but it's still a favorite.

And my number one, lovelovelove this special, is John Denver and the Muppets: A Christmas Together. The songs are *my* Christmas Carols and without them it's just not Christmas. I wish they'd put out a DVD, so I could buy it already!

I can't wait to read about everyone else's favorites! How about you?

So the Blog Carnival this week is about my plans for Valentine's Day, and I have the worst memory. I dunno, I used to celebrate every little thing... Then I got married, and my husband's blasé attitude about everything kinda rubbed off on me, and it's been hard for me to get excited about anything any more. However, having a family, with kids who get excited about EVERYTHING, really brings back my own enthusiasm! Last year we had so much fun! We all made Valentines and had a special extra sweet dinner... ^-^

This year I am hoping we get to do the same kind of thing. Handmade Valentines, spending the day with my little family, yummeh foodz... ^-^ I might even wear this... Assuming no one buys it...


Let Your Heart Take Flight
bunnykissd: (NaughtyNice)
Well ok... so I am late, but not too late I hope... I've seen some lists posted before and hoped to see wishes I could grant, but none so far, but maybe some of you need prodding to post... so...

step one
- Make a post to your LJ with a list of ten holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for Harry Potter on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

step two
- Surf around your LJ to see who has posted a list. And now here's the important part:
- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use----do it.
- You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy.
- There are no guarantees with this project, and no strings attached. Just... wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

My list here... )
