Happy Friday and Happy Holidays to each and every one of you! Welcome to the last edition of My Favorite Posts SHOW OFF Weekend Blog Party! Say hello to my lovely hosts:

Say hello to my December team:
Kim from This Ole Mom
Melissa from Deliciously Savvy
Miranda from Myra Bev’s Corner
Let’s SHOW OFF some of those awesome posts from last week!
Stacey chose Hill House Homestead as her favorite of the week:
“Both of my kids love cinnamon, but my lil man the most. He has since he was little. I had to pin this, so that I can get them made.”
Cathy‘s favorite comes from Mothering with Grace:  “Love these adorable Santa cookies! Pinning to make for gatherings and friends next year for Christmas.”
Meg loved the recipe from Frugal in Florida:  “I enjoyed the Spring Rolls with Sesame Dipping Sauce post from Frugal in Florida. After all the food and sweets I’ve been eating over the past month these light and fresh spring rolls sound fantastic.”
Kim gave a thumbs up for My Turn for Us:  “I love this cute and fun idea. Very creative.”
Miranda also gave My Turn for Us a thumbs up too: “this easy to make alcohol/ infuser drink is exactly what the doctor order for Christmas but in my case new year as I am on day 2.”
Vashti‘s Favorite this week comes from Taylor Made Ranch:  “Her post “How will I ‘Provide Christmas’?” was very thought provoking. I completely agree Christmas has become very commercialized and stressful. Although it’s fun to give and receive gifts the best part of Christmas (at least for me) is being surrounded by my loved ones.”
My favorite post comes from The Broke and Beautiful Life.  The post is about doing it cheap in Las Vegas.  What I loved about it was the secrets we use to save from a local’s point of view! Anyone can vacation in Vegas for dirt cheap – you just have to know how!

Happy Holidays from Florida!

25 Dec

Merry Christmas from Florida!

I want to wish a joyous Christmas and wonderful holiday season to all my fans, followers and readers. Thank you for all your support and feedback! I enjoy your visits and love reading your comments. Love you guys! I’m going to share a cheery and Christmasy poem by my friend AJ from ajwrites57 . Enjoy!



Santa sat 

Santa sat in calm reflection,
his heart was set in one direction,
Christmas day is near.



His opened list, he checked it twice
Who was naughty, who was nice,
Christmas day is near.

Soft white beard, stroked in thought,
Making sure no one’s forgot.
Christmas day is near.

Santa’s head chock full of names,
Who gets dolls and who gets games.
Christmas day is near.
Santa’s workshop in a flurry,
Santa pushed the elves to hurry.
Christmas day is near.

The North Pole filled with jolly hustle,
Santa laughs at frantic bustle.
Christmas day is near.

Santa’s Workshop

Mrs. Claus feeds and stuffs her man,
To make him jolly as she can.
Christmas day is near.

Toys for Tommy, toys for Jane,
No one forgotten, it is plain.
Christmas day is near.

Mrs. Claus loves to sing,
Fa-la-la’s when bells do ring.
Christmas day is near.

Santa’s elves outdo themselves,
Stacking toys upon the shelves.

Christmas day is near.

Presents packed in his red sleigh,
Elves have worked night and day.
Christmas day is here.

Eight reindeer groomed and fed,
Rudolph waiting at the head.
Christmas day is here.

Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen,
Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen.
Christmas day is here.

Santa’s Full Sack

The children, good as gold each day,
You-Know-Who is on his way!
Christmas day is here.

His pipe fit tight between his lips,
His red suit wrapped round his hips.
Christmas day is here.

Through the night sky his team flew,
On the way to me and you.
Christmas day is here.

On the rooftops, click-click-click,
Tiny hooves landed mighty quick.
Christmas day is here.

Down the chimney with full pack,
Stockings stuffed with Cracker Jack.
Christmas day is here.

“To All, A Goodnight!”

Eats your cookies, drinks the milk,
Up the chimney, smooth as silk.
Christmas day is here.

“Happy Christmas to all tonight
To all I wish a fond Good Night!”
Christmas day is here.

I wish we could store some of the Christmas Spirit in little mason jars and open a jar of it each month throughout the year!
