TALK ABOUT A COMEDY OF ERRORS- There was a glitch with the first poll so as of 12:20 a new poll had started to be fair and square, remember you can only vote once. And if you can believe it #38 was left off of the second poll so we had to restart as of 1:50 pm….sorry, I am blaming it on holiday craziness lol. Thank you for voting!

 

 

Hi there! I am just coming off the heels of the most favorite party I have ever thrown……my Christmas party was so much fun and everything worked out exactly as I had hoped it would.  I cannot wait to share it with you (next week). Needless to say between work, getting out a ton of holiday orders out the door, preparing for the party, just starting to wrap up gifts and now preparing for a house full  of guests for Christmas I am one busy girl. It’s all good…I do love the holidays and I am slowly feeling like the intense pressure is now behind me, phew!

I always so enjoy holding these contests and this particular one (both round 1 and 2) has some of the best pictures I have ever gotten….which of course makes for a very difficult decision! Plus there are two rounds so this will require some serious contemplation:) Get those pencils and papers out, put on your thinking caps and decide which of these wonderful pictures best depicts “holiday love”. You can choose your three favorites.

The voting will end tomorrow morning at  which time round 2 will post. On Thursday I will announce the two finalists for the showdown round, and that will be the final voting round. It will be fun to see which you choose. Without further ado, here is round 1 of Holiday Love-

So many great pictures, hard to choose!! Thank you to all who sent in their pictures and all of you who are participating in the voting. Now comes the hard part, narrowing it down to your THREE favorites!


Wishing everyone a wonderful day as the Christmas countdown starts, I know many of us have long lists of all kinds of things to tackle this week, so remember to pace yourself and make sure take little “me” breaks.

I have gotten good at doing this and trust me, it’s good for the mind, body and soul! For me it could mean SITTING down with a cup of a coffee and a magazine, a bubble bath, taking a 15 min power nap…..I think it’s important to take those occasional  mini breaks amidst all the chaos and craziness albeit fun craziness that the holiday season brings. Until tomorrow……

Wait, and there’s no option for 38? That doesn’t seem fair either…

I wanted to vote for 38, but it is skipped on the ballot. Such a pretty table setting!

Kaki on

I wanted to vote #38.

Marilyn Stirrett on

So many beautiful pictures to choose from. I could see No. 10 in my house.

Linda Wishart on

Merry Christmas Tina

Jo Dame Shafer on

Although my votes were for my favorite Christmas decor, I think #37 — little red Volksvagen with the little boys — is a scene stealer exemplifying holiday spirit. It’s delightful!

Sheila on

Oh my. My sweet golden #10 had 22 votes before this new round of voting.

Karen Aamodt on

Now I feel badly that I did not submit my Christmas photo of our young seal point Siamese, Percival. If you host this contest in 2018 I will be sure to submit it. These were all wonderful and thank you to all who shared. Now that I’m in more of a Christmas mood I will go home to bake more cookies and I promise to not complain about my aching back or feet!

Lee on

#10!

Lisa on

There were so many beautiful pictures, I lost count. I narrowed it down not easily though! I loved 42, 37 and 27 but there are so. many good ones. I will definitely enter your next contest!

Vicki on

I love all the pictures of your precious baby at the end of all of your blogs. Please don’t ever stop that tradition that you started….that way we never forget him.

Andrew on

I vote for 39

Mary Baker on

So many beautiful pictures in round 1. My favorites are 27, 37, 39. Thanks for sharing them and they brought a smile to me this morning. I will look back over them at the end of the day. Have a great day.
