Stocking give-away time !!!

**  Give-away closed - winner announced soon **



I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. We had a very relaxing day. We snacked, ate lots of turkey and yummy side dishes, and stuffed ourselves with delicious desserts. I missed the parades but we did do our usual movie marathon. This year it was the last two Harry Potter movies. Most of us had already seen them at the theater but Justin hadn't seen the last one yet. All in all it was a very relaxing day.


Now on to the give-away !!!




This year I am giving away this scrappy striped stocking stuffed with goodies. I'm not going to show you the goodies so that the winner will be surprised when the stocking arrives.

The rules are very simple....Leave a comment if you would like a chance to win this stocking and all it's surprises. To make it a bit more fun, let me know what your favorite Christmas song is. I've always loved Silent Night but I also love to sing all the "fun" carols with the kids like Jingle Bells, etc.

After you leave a comment check out the other blogs (Mr. Linky has a list at the end of this post) that are joining me in giving away a stocking filled with goodies. Come back in a couple days to see who else linked up.

That's it, easy peasy. I'll keep the comments open until December 5th. Then on December 6th I will have Hubby or Robbie draw a name and that person will be the winner. Please make sure I have a way to contact you if you win.

This give-away is open to everyone no matter where you live.


*****If you are a blogger that is joining me and giving away a stocking this week, please add a link to your give-away in Mr. Linky so everyone can come visit your blog*****.


p.s. I used the tools over at Picnik to make the frame around my stocking if anyone is curious.

Tks for hosting the Christmas Stocking Give Away Robin, it's going to be fun. Whatever Frank Sinatra sings that's All About Christmas is just fine with me. Cheers

Another lovely stocking like the pretty one at Golden Lilly Crafts :).
My favourite Christmas carol is an Australian one we used to sing at primary school. It's called the 'Carol of the Birds' and the words give a great picture of them welcoming in Christmas Day.
Cheers,
Robyn
