Spice-Rubbed Ham with Apple-Maple Sauce

Our Best Christmas Dinner Menus
  • ✿ вαвч gírl ღ tínα ✿

    @Treasures by Brenda, it's interesting to learn of other's traditions. Ham used to be the only thing we ever had for Christmas and always a pork roast for New Year's. It was only in recent years that we added turkey to the Christmas menu. When the family grew, we had to expand on the offerings so we now have ham + turkey.

  • Linda Menczel

    Oh yes, we always have ham for Christmas too. Along with the Turkey. Love the Honey Bake or West Virginia Hams! We do a Pork Tenderloin for New Years.

    It all sounds good to me!

How to Make Inexpensive Traditional Pine Cone Tree Ornaments

How to Make Inexpensive Pine Cone Tree Ornaments
  • Cynthia Alsup

    I tried this last yr. but found it really hard to screw in the eye hook. The pine cone center is hard and drilling was too much trouble.

  • Denise McWhorter

    I made used a small nail to tap a hole into the ends of large pinecones that I hung with jute (3 total), added a bow and used for a door or bannister. Sold some at a craft sale also.

Create a Christmas Ornament Box for Your Child as a Lasting Family Heritage and Keepsake.

  • Carol Hettick

    My Mother-in-law started putting an ornament on the packages beginning with my boys 1st Christmas. The practice grew and grew. Soon we would look for special ornaments depicting their interests or events and gave ornaments as gifts. Each year they would put their own ornaments on the tree. one set on each side of the tree. They were stored in separate boxes. When they married and left home, they each took their box with them. They had a very good start for their first tree. I remember we were only able to afford a few special ornaments that are still on the tree, 42 yrs. later, and borrowed the rest.

    New grandbaby this year, great idea!

  • Ann White

    My family asks each child to choose what kind of Christmas tree they want when they turn 13. Every Christmas after that they receive purchased and handmade ornaments that fit their theme. By the time they move out they have enough ornaments to decorate a tree. My daughter choose pastel Victorian, one of my nephews choose metal ornaments and mercury glass.

  • Colette Tihista-Longin

    I started this with my four...I had large wooden boxes made for each of them and started a theme for each, then painted the box to correspond. For instance, one has snowmen, one has Santa, another nutcrackers and the last Christmas trees. It's always a fun time trying to find the ornament! This year i wanted to incorporate Schnauzers, since we got a puppy this year...I even found a nutcracker schnauzer! Anyhow, a nice keepsake to treasure forever.

Focus little ones on OTHERS during the month of Christmas- over 50 acts of kindness. What a fantastic idea to help keep CHRIST in Christmas...thinking of others!

  • CHUNTI02

    You definitely have the right heart. My daughters and I have also adopted a family in need every CHRISTmas & bought gifts for them instead of us & bought them Christmas dinner from one of the markets... God gave...

  • Penny Donovan

    Wonderful that we have a time of year where we focus on others and not ourselves.

  • Sarah Stern
