Once again, I've been presented with some beautiful awards. I am always honored when my blogging friends pass these on to me because I know that others are enjoying their visits here.

This beautiful Friends award was given to me by Sharon at Sit with Me Awhile and Mari at My Little Corner of the World. Thank you, Ladies. I cherish your friendship. All of my friends are welcome to take a copy of this award.

The Christmas Spirit Award was passed on to me by Hootin' Anni and Sharon. Thank you, Ladies. I try to carry the Spirit of Christmas with me all year long. This is for all of those who have done a good deed this Christmas.

Here are the rules for the Christmas award.~~~~~

You must be a true Christmas lover to receive this award.

The person to whom you give the award must also be in love with Christmas.

You must link back to the person who gave you the award.

You must list 5 things that you love about Christmas.

If you can't limit it to 5 things, then keep going till you run out of space!

Pass the award along to as many people as you like. That can be 1 or 50. It's up to you! But, you must pass it on to at least one person in order to keep the Christmas cheer going! Let your recipients know that you have tagged them by leaving them a comment.

The five things I love about Christmas are:

1. Watching all of the children in the family open their presents.

2. The magic and enchantment of the season - the Christmas Spirit.

3. Christmas carols.

4. Shopping for others. I always try to buy something that I know they will love.

5. Getting together with family.

6. Going with hubby and the grandsons to get the tree.

7. The keeping of family traditions.

8. Christmas dinner at my mothers.

9. Reading Christmas stories and watching Christmas movies on TV.

10. Celebrating the birth of Christ.
The Butterfly Award was given to me by Deborah, Mama Bear and Mike. Thank you. I'm glad you all think my blog is cool. If you are reading this post, I would like to pass this award on to you. Enjoy!

It appears that I've been good. Jackie passed this award on to me. Thank you so much, my friend. I really appreciate it.

I would like to pass this award on to all of the blogs I read on a regular basis. I love visiting all of my friends, though I'm a bit behind right now.

And now for an award that I would like to pass to all of my friends, readers and followers. It is another Spirit of Christmas award and one that I gave out last year. Please accept it as my Christmas gift to you. ~Blessings, Mary~
