A Few of my favorite things

Some one asked me the other day how "A Few of my Favorite Things" became a Christmas song. I had no answer for that. I was reading on the internet, though and someone was saying that it was time to take stock of the year and see the big picture and enjoy all of your favorite things. So I decided to share a few of my favorite thing with you. My favorite colors are shades of red and green. I have way too much green in my wardrobe. I really need to branch out a little.
I love Anne of Green Gables series and most of the stories by Jane Austin
I love wonderful smelling candles
I love Christmas cards. I hang them in the shape of a Christmas tree, because that is what my mom did- at least once!
I love Chocolate!!! My favorite is Cadbury, but Ritter Sports are pretty close. This almond roca that I can't eat this year because of my braces was something I made with my maternal Grandmother the first year I was away from home for Christmas. I have made it almost every year since then. Unfortunately, it only works out about 1/4 of the time. It is real finiky! sp? But so, so good. The carmels are from a recipe I was given from my mother-in-law and they are the best! Emma begged and begged until I made them this year. They are soft enough that they don't stick to my braces, but chewy enough to not be gross.
I love Christmas period! It's my favorite time of year, besides warm falls and warm springs- which I also love!
I love really high thread count sheets that have no wrinkles in them. I don't like wrinkles at my feet when I am trying to sleep!
I love my many different creche displays. I want more!
I love being married to my wonderful husband and being a mom to my beautiful children.
I'm sure I have more, but I can't think well with the baby screaming his head off!
So what are some of your favorite things?

One thing I love is that your comments have reminded me of things I have forgotten I did. Lise says I hung the cards in the shape of a Christmas tree also so I must have. Wish I had a jounal from the lost years when you and your sibs were young Then I might actually know what happened.

a new favorite thing. We are doing this tonight at Family Home Christmas Eve. (stole it from an idea at Primary sharing time) Make a wall of rice krispie blocks- to make it strong put them together with caramel sauce and put it in the freezer for a few hours. Then get a logo man or a figure that can be Samuel. Read about Samuel's propecies on the wall and then be the unbelieving Nephities and try to take him down with marshmellows. After the Christmas story is over of course. A new Christmas tradition.
