Winner of the Christmas Apron! & Friday Fave 5

I just drew a name out of the Christmas stocking for the winner of my Christmas apron give-a-way! The winner is....

Angela @ CrumbsInMyButter!!!

And...the winner is the giver today because Angela is hosting her own Christmas give-a-way right now. Why are you waiting another minute? Go there. Hey...but before you go, check out my Friday Fave 5 below.
Angela, I'll be emailing you for your address, then sending your Christmas apron tout de suite!
Congratulations and Happy Baking with your little cuties!

My Son Avery in dress clothes (my favorite outfit he wears) avoiding the camera...And I am fully aware that the word outfit should not be used in his hearing! I used to dress him in Feltman Brothers! He was too young to care!

My son Andrew with his pup...always a favorite combination...
Note the camo robe!

These reindeer my fabulous friend, Alisa, gave me!

And these beautiful angels. Alisa gave these to me, too. You really should check out her CHRISTmas blog here. She is a wonderful friend and an amazing decorator!

And this is one of my favorite snacky foods. I stopped eating it for a while because I was in hummus overload. But this week I bought it again and for two days I have been snacking on it...dipping baked tostitos in my little Hummus Heaven on Earth. Halelujah, halelujah...I can almost hear those angels on the buffet table singing now!


  1. Congrats Angela!

    I absolutely love those candle scroll pictures on the wall. Sorry I don't know what to call them. They are beautiful. Oh wait, we are looking at the Christmas stuff. :-) I love the angel plate holder too.

  2. Lucky Angela!:)
    I love me some hummus too! I think I may attempt to make it...Someone just taught me!

  3. Those angels and reindeer are gorgeous.

    We just finished off one of those tubs of hummus. I think it had roasted red peppers in it. My fave from that brand is the spicy pepper one.

  4. I like your list, Melanie!

    Great pictures of your sons. My son Rocko would love the camo robe.

  5. Hey Mel,
    Love your "scapes". The angels are FABULOUS on the buffet and the deer look wonderful with the evergreens and berries. Congrats to the apron winner. Maybe I will have to do a give-a-way on my blog - any tips?

  6. Congrats to Angela. Love the pics!

  7. Oh my. Those are great favorites and I am with you on the hummus. LOVE that hummus.

  8. LOVE hummus. I pair it with feta cheese and any kind of vegie on a wrap. Yum!

  9. I pray you are amazingly blessed in your new ministry and that God will be with you every step of the way. You have purpose Melanie, walk into it fearlessly!
