Christmas Cards


This year my mom and I wanted to be creative with our Christmas card. We decided to spell out family using objects from our kitchen to form the letters. The kitchen is the hub of our home. Friends and family love to gather around fellowshiping and having fun.
I have always looked forward to holidays like Christmas because I love getting in the kitchen with my whole family as everyone has apart of preparing the feast. My dad's part is to carve the turkey. He also hovers over the condiment platter while Brittyn puts out black olives. He loves them! I like the little gherkins. Leslie, my older sister, prepares the deviled eggs and Brittyn, the youngest, also decorates and sets the table.
My mom and I team up with preparing the turkey, ham, and sides. My mom's specialty is preparing Great Grandmother Adele's cornbread dressing and giblet gravy. I usually handle the desserts. That is where I like to really show off. One year I received a creme brûlée kit with a torch for Christmas. I made creme brûlée, eclairs, and more that year.

So my question today is What objects would represent your family?
Be sure to include your name and email address with your answer.

Today's gift is an e-gift card for Walmart worth $15 so that you can design and order your family's Christmas card to send to your friends and family. It cost me only $20 for 50 cards.

  2. I grew up with my grandmother and mother using their hands to bake bread and decorate homemade cakes especially Trinidad Rum Cakes. For every occasion, it was a treat to have one of my grandma's cakes, but now that gift has been passed down to my mom. I have a little bit of their talents, and should pay more attention to the art so I kay pass it on to my children.

    I would love to share some recipes and cake pictures with you.

  3. The biggest object would be a Bible since my Dad has been a pastor and New Testament Professor, my Mom has taught in Christian schools, My brother is an Army chaplain, and I am a preacher, getting the education to be a New Testament professor, and work at a Seminary.

  4. I think it's weird to say but Apple products might represent my family. My mom who is 57 loves her MacBook Pro, iPhone 4S, and iPod. I also have 4 Apple products as well. After eating amazing dinner my mom prepares, we all sit on the couch and look at funny cat videos on the YouTube on the computer. Becoming a new holiday tradition! :)

  5. I think the best object that would represent my family would be the Christmas tree. This is because we are a big clan (family to me includes my grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins). And most of us second generation (kids and cousins) are located in different places, all away from our hometown. Yet, like the Christmas tree that is put up on special occasions or on one special event, all of us cousins go home to spend the last day of the year together as one big clan. Also, even though we haven't seen each other for 11 months++, even if everyone changes in those time we are apart, whenever we get together on the last day of the year, we still talk and laugh as though no one has left --> kind of like how all the ornaments in the tree are different but when placed together, still make the tree an amazing sight. :D

  13. I made creme brulee last year and it was soooo good! Have to try that again.
    Anyhow, what would probably represent our family is Christmas decorations. We decorate trees for charity and so we're ALWAYS thinking about Christmas time!

  15. The objects that would represent my family would probably be a Bible, and music, and instruments (F horn is my specialty). Music and the Lord have always been a huge part of my life. :)

  19. The object that represents my family would be the kitchen table. We all gather around the table for delicious homemade meals on all the major holidays. Everyone brings a dish so we get to have a plate full of everyone's personal touch.
