Twelve Days Of Christmas...Day Four...Delivering Goodies

Hello my friends! Happy Saturday! I hope today finds you warm and cozy and enjoying the preparation for the big day. Or at least...crossing things off your list. : )

Today I am sharing another of our family Christmas traditions...delivering our Christmas goodies to some of our special friends...nothing fancy or expensive, just something to brighten their evening and let them know we love them. This year we put together some hot cocoa treat bags, complete with Rudolph Hot Chocolate, mini marshmallows, candy canes, and Peyton's homemade chocolate chip cookies.

Last night after Steve got home from work, we loaded into the car and drove around town, delivering our treats. The Christmas music was playing and light snow was falling! We had so much fun together driving around looking at all the lights. When we had delivered that last package, we picked up a pizza, headed home, and watched Elf. It was a wonderful Christmas-y evening.

All ready to assemble...

And all ready to go!

Today we are enjoying our All is Bright Yankee candle.
To be honest, it is not one of my favorites.
It is a mix of citrus and musk.
But it sure is pretty!

If you would like to see what my daughter Madison is sharing today, you can visit her here.
And our friend Danielle is sharing her favorite Christmas traditions on her cozy blog here.

If you would like to join in the fun, please do!
And have a cozy day!
See you tomorrow. : )


  1. Such fun, my friend! I am sure your friends and loved ones were tickled pink :) Yesterday my son and I delivered homemade fudge, caramel, and cookies to special friends and oh, how it brings a smile to my face :)

  2. I can't believe you guys watched ELF last night, too! I would LOVE a big plate of Peyton's famous chocolate chip cookies delivered to me, please!!!

  3. What fun, Billie Jo...Thank you for sharing, smiles.

  4. We watched Elf too for the Twitter party!! And we ordered pizza and had hot chocolate. I love your little goody bags. What a sweet idea!!

    1. Oh and any candle that ends in musk is not my favorite scent either.

  5. You are so sweet, what a wonderful way to spread love and Christmas cheer! Hug to you. Juli

  6. Sounds like a lovely evening, Billie Jo. I'm sure your friends appreciated your thoughtfulness. ♥

  8. That is so nice of you! I love that you did this! Your friends are very lucky ♥ What a perfectly magically Christmas-y night! I love the Rudolph bags to tie everything together! And would you believe we watched Elf last night too! Happy Weekend, my friend! Stay cozy!
    PS you have to message me and tell me what Eggnog Murder is about! I love the title : )

  9. I am amazed at how similar our traditions are, we must be long lost sisters. ~wink~
    We will be visiting some shut-ins this week.
    Thank you for sharing.

  10. Cute idea! Much easier then baking, baking, baking, and more baking. (And trying not to eat it all before it goes out the door! Ha!)


Thanks so much for saying hello!
