Christmas Giveaway...

I am so excited to have my first Christmas Giveaway!
And for me and my family,
there is only one way to truly show our love of Christmas
and that is through our love of Jesus Christ!
When my children were but infants,
I found the most wonderful Nativity.
It was only Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus but,
It was made in Italy from a child-friendly,
practically unbreakable polymer.
We now have over 5o different pieces to this Nativity
And it has been played with all over our house on steps,
kitchen floors, everywhere!
As a mother and father of young 20 years olds,
we would have to say the greatest joy in our hearts is to know that our children know and love their Jesus Christ and live daily to serve HIM.
So… For our first Giveaway we want to offer a family the same beginnings that our family had.
The Fontanini 5" Collection Holy Family

Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus Set

TattingChic said... is hard to decide what my fave Christmas song is! Right now it is "Silver and Gold". Ya know, the song the snowman character (Burl Ives) sings in Rudolf the Rednosed Reindeer!

Calamity Jane's Cottage, Bonnie said...

Hi Yvette,
What a great and thought giveaway. I will post about your it on my blog. I have to tell you my favorite Christmas song is "Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire" because as a small child I remember sitting on my Mom's lap and she singing it.

Jean Tuthill said...

Charlene said...

It is hard to choose just one... but, Oh Holy Night would win. I enjoyed your site so much. I really like to see all the art you have made in your slide show. Your give away is very touching. Thank you for sharing.

Debra said...

I would have to say it is a toss up between "Little Drummer Boy" and "Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas". For me it is also important "who" sings it, for me a childrens choir singing Little Drummer Boy (or David Bowie), and of course Ms. Judy Garland singing the other from the movie "Meet Me in St. Loius".

Lynns Lovelies said...

There are so many beautiful songs to chose from. One that comes to mind is , "Do you Hear What I Hear?"~~Beautiful!

Cami @ Creating Myself said...

Please Come Home for Christmas is my altime favorite but I love all Christmas music (your playlist is great!). I won't listen to any other kind from Thanksgiving day until Jan 2nd. Luckily for my family, I have a lot of Christmas CDs. LOL

I'd love to win the Fontanini nativity!

Cathy Wegner said...

Favourite Christmas song, its so hard I love so many. But I love to hear "What Child is This?" I love to sing "O Come Let us Adore Him". This is the most beautiful give=away I have ever seen. My current give-away is quite simple in comparison!
