Advent Blog Hop, Day 23

Welcome to Day 23 of the annual Serendipitous Stitching Advent Blog Hop. Two more sleeps! (Actually for us it's just one more, but that's a story for another day.)

I have an annual tradition--insofar as something you have been doing for four years is a "tradition"--of making my nieces a Christmas ornament. This year it's a Lizzie*Kate Sled Dudes Snow Man for Special K and a Stocking Sleds Santa for Sugar Rea. (Santa was stitched for Craft Month.)

You can follow these links to see the other ornaments I've made for the girls:
First Christmas
Second Christmas: Santa and Snowman
Third Christmas: Santa and Snowman
Jo asked us to share our favorite Christmas Songs with you, and I went all Rob Gordon:

5. "The Christmas Waltz," She and Him
4."Fairytale of New York," The Pogues
3. "Christmas Wrapping," The Waitresses
2. "Elf's Lament", Barenaked Ladies (with Michael Bublé)
1. "Silver Bells"

 Ho, ho, ho! Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Anna: The Sleds are lovely oh so sweet.
I think a tradition is any length of time, I hope your Christmas Season is fun filled with lots of goodies to eat and enjoy.

Merry Christmas

Thanks for taking part in the Advent Calendar Blog Hop this year. The sleds are so sweet, the girls will love them.
Great Top Five of Christmas songs too. This has been such an interesting topic this year.

The girls' sleds are adorable. They are going to love them. I must live in a cave because the only song I am familiar on your list is Silver Bells. Off to check the others out! Wishing you, the Dude, and Stella a very Merry Christmas!
