“It’s the most wonderful time of the year
With the kids jingle belling
And everyone telling you “Be of good cheer” 
It’s the most wonderful time of the year 

It’s the hap-happiest season of all

With those holiday greetings and gay happy meetings 

When friends come to call 

It’s the hap- happiest season of all 

There’ll be parties for hosting 

Marshmallows for toasting 

And caroling out in the snow 

There’ll be scary ghost stories 

And tales of the glories of 

Christmases long, long ago …”

 Now that I have that song stuck in your head, let’s get on with the party! Debi of Recipes for my Boys and Christie from Food Done Light and I can’t wait to see what you link up this week!

Here are the features from last week

Lemon Fudge from CrazyforCrust-OMG, I have to tell you as soon as I saw this, my mind went wild with possibilities, crust for fudge, oh yes!
Chocolate Espresso Stars from the Tumbleweed Contessa-chocolate and coffee, and then dipped in chocolate, I think so. 
Reindeer Cupcakes from Half Baked Harvest-These are just too cute, would be perfect for a class party
Corn Chowder from Hungry Couple-I adore corn chowder, just warms you up on a cold day. 
Gift Ideas for the Foodie in your Life from Melissa’s Cuisine I found several items, I added to my wish list
Christmas Sew Cute from Pink Polka Dot Creations-I used to quilt, but never anything this beautiful
I beg you, please share photos on your Facebook pages of your wonderful creations, I love to share but will only share photos, I want you to get the most views possible, and, well, let’s face it. A tiny little thumbnail photo just doesn’t grab the reader like a big drool worthy photo does! 
Be sure to pop over to Debi’s and Christie’s and see what they’ve featured this week.
You know how parties work, 
link up a few of your favorite recipes and/or crafts, provide a link back somewhere on your post 
or on your party page, If you don’t provide the link back, we can’t feature you. 
visit a few others and leave some kind words. 
Oh and make sure you drop by Debi’s, give her a hug from me and follow her, she’s also on Facebook. and Christie, make sure she feels some love too, on her blog and facebook
We’ll be popping by to comment, Pin and feature on facebook so leave a light on for us.
