 Merry Christmas in July y'all!  Doing anything to celebrate?  We're going to watch some Christmas movies, make peanut butter balls (YUM!) and maybe play some Christmas games.  
In Jr. Church, on Sunday night, we're going to celebrate it as well.  We've got some fun things planned!  Hopefully they'll like it.  We'll share more with you after the event, when when can show you some pictures.  
Meanwhile, here are some random Christmas things we're going to share with y'all.  Hope you enjoy and maybe get some ideas you can use for your own Christmas!  :)

Every year for Christmas, I make my each of my immediate family members the same thing, only with their likes as the main thing.  (not sure if that makes sense)  Last year I gave them each a goodie bag with their favorite things in it.  

In each one there was 
*There favorite Bible verse in a picture with their favorite season and their "God Loves them" sign.
*a snowglobe with a picture another of their "God Loves them" signs and on the other side it said "Smile, God loves you".
*a couple of their favorite snacks
* favorite drink
*favorite Christmas candy
(needless to say the Mello Yellow in the left corner didn't fit in the bag)

I made the "These Are A Few Of Your Favorite Things" sign on the computer and glued on each one.  The tags I found online and backed them with green paper.  The "tissue paper" is fabric that I hot glued to the inside.

This adorable snowman tissue box cover was made by our sister.  She can just look at a pattern or picture and viola!  She can make her own!

Dixie's M&M painted ornaments.  She likes to collect M&M stuff, so she decided to make herself some M&M ornaments a couple of years ago.  Cute huh?

Our Mother made these darling, crocheted angels for Christmas presents last year.  She uses this really tiny thread.  I don't know how she does it, I wouldn't have the patience.

I crocheted this pillow for our Grandmother a couple of years ago.  It sits on her couch year round!
