Sweet Treats winner and a runner up!

Thank you everyone for entering to win my sweet treats! I loved reading all of your holiday stories, it was so hard to choose one. I asked my son to read through all of the stories to see which one he really enjoyed and he chose SHANNON McGANN! Congrats Shannon! I will be mailing you the treats this week! Nolan also liked RITA SANTOS' story as well so Rita, I am sending you a mni treat!
Here is what Shannon said: My holidays were really special this year because it was the first Christmas that my oldest son really understood what was going on (he's three). It was so wonderful on Christmas morning for us to sing Happy Birthday to Jesus and then hand out presents. He was so excited to get presents (and surprisingly, he wanted to make sure everyone else had presents too). It's exciting that both our boys are growing up so much. It was also special to be able to spend some time with my mom at her house. She lives in another province, so I don't see her very often.
Here is what Rita said: Congrats Teri on 10K!!! I've already signed your book. The best thing about Christmas 2007 was celebrating it with my kids, daughter is getting married in July 2008 & my son has a fantastic girlfriend whom I love & I hope he marries her in a year or two. It was a great year! I luv coming by to visit your blog, keep up the great work, girl!
What I really enjoyed hearing from most of you is that you spent the holidays with family and that everyone is really trying to have stress free holidays. That's something I really need to learn. I had a stressful holiday as usual and ran myself into the ground doing too much. Ya think I will ever learn??? It's Monday again! Hope you all have a great day!

Oh Wow! Thank you so much Teri & Nolan! What I do for a no stress holiday is start some projects early & do most of my Christmas shopping the day after Thanksgiving. Oh, I still have lots to prepare the week before, but you also need to tell yourself to enjoy the holidays along with all the people you are trying to please. They also want to enjoy your company...you must remember that. Leave the dishes in the sink & counters & do them after everyone leaves, sit down & enjoy the conversation. That was the hardest thing to do for me, so after a few years I have begone to truely relax.
