Visions of Sugar Plums-Day 2-traditions

Hi, and welcome to the second day of "Visions of Sugarplums"!  
Join us all week long for wonderful recipes, paper crafts,
family traditions and even some giveaways!  Be sure to
follow the links below to visit my friends who are also

This is the time of year that my camera gets a workout.  It seems like I'm snapping pictures left and right trying to capture all of the special traditions that our family has but, with everything going on it's easy to forget some photos that I like to capture each and every year.  Simple as That offers an adorable Holiday photo checklist so you won't forget to capture some traditional holiday pictures each and every year.

 One fun tradition is holiday parties  Every year our homeschool co-op has a fun Christmas party.  

We also started a new tradition this year, an Ugly Sweater Christmas party.  It was a HOOT!!!  We had the best time and laughed so much that our stomachs were hurting.  Enjoy some pictures of these UGLY sweaters.

The guy in front with the santa hat on has lights on his sweater and they really worked!

This week one of my BFF's Mika from Mika's Pantry is co-hosting Visions of Sugar Plums and with Mika it's all about the food, she's what we like to call a FOODIE so head over to her page and see what you can do with cranberries for the holidays.

Lori over at Choux Choux is all about Holiday decorating and crafting so if you would like some snowflake craft ideas head over see what she made, you will be breaking out the glue, paper and scissors.  She also offers a giveaway!

Ira over at Ira's Crea Corner

Regina at Hand to Paper is making all sorts of useful boxes out of paper, you really won't believe some of them!  Head over and see if you can spot the lifesaver box...too cute!

Christina at I Gotta Create is sharing how to create simple holiday napkin rings, I just love her creativity with aluminum foil.  I can't wait to try some of these unique ideas.
