Favorite Things from Alaska
We got the package from Alaska that has my daughter, Sarah's, family's Favorite Things in it. She started this tradition a few years ago. This year we got a 2008 Northern Lights calendar, pink velour hat, candle in tin, Redeeming Love a novel by Francine Rivers, box of Whoppers, jingle bell snowflake, homemade cinnamon rolls, CD of everyone's favorite Christmas Carols, Alaska ULU knife, Big Dippers (Wood salad or pasta servers), Picture This (a game the family invented, made and put together) Elf, the movie. She prints out a sheet explaining all of the things in the box and puts in in as well (red sheet).
I think she does a good job of putting this together and she sends out about 12 of these every year. She is a good shopper and she shops all year for these items, which helps with the cost. She made the cinnamon rolls using her bread machine...she makes all kinds of bread using that machine. The recipe for this is the blue sheet in photo. Wish I was so creative with mine. I told her the other day that she was going to have to give me lessons using mine.
We look forward to getting our favorite things box! It is now a family tradition. We try to send them things as part of our favorite things as well...we do not match what she does, but are trying.
