Trimming the Tree & a Guest Blog & #Giveaway

Please take a moment to visit with me today at Fictional Candy as I chat about why I chose Atlantic City as the setting for THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE and also, why I LOVE Prince Alexander!

As I mentioned yesterday, lots of things have made it tough to get in the Christmas spirit, but last night changed all that. I had my baby home to help us trim the tree and we had a visit from Santa! That’s an old tradition in our neighborhood as Santa does a test drive through town with the help of the local fire department. Here’s a short video of that! If you can’t see it here, you can click here to view it.

Then we got to trimming the tree! It’s always fun to put out ornaments and remember from where they came. I’m sharing some of my favorites and some other trimming photos on Facebook. Don’t worry, even if you don’t do FB, you can view the album. Just click here to see the photos!

Here’s a shot of some of my favorite ornaments. No, not the beach Santa, but the five little angels playing in the orchestra. My sister and I used to play in the orchestra and this reminds me of those lovely days. These ornaments were handed down to me from my mom, so they are fairly old.

I hope the spirit of the holidays is with you! Please share some of your holiday favorites with us.

  1. About 90% of our tree ornaments have special meaning to us. The kids make a new one every year to add to the tree.
    My boys asked to have a star at the top of the tree this year but I couldn’t do it. I’ve had the same angel on my tree since my first christmas 🙂

  2. My poor cat jumped a mile when he heard the sirens!!! Love it, we haven’t had that in our neighborhood…and the memories, keep them close to your heart!

  3. We just got back from Louisville,KY, and we went to the Galt Hotel Kaleidoscope event. It’s a multi-block long Christmas display of lights and silk and imagination that is the best Christmas Spirit Jumpstarter I’ve ever seen. Anyone near Louisville is lucky to get to see it.
