Twas The Night...

Before Christmas! Today, I'll be playing with family so I'll be brief. I thank each and every one of you who have spent this holiday season with me! Tomorrow will be the final post, and then on the day after Christmas, Boxing Day, I'll be making a list and checking it twice, and I'll choose my final gift certificate winner, so stay tuned for one more day of ZAMfest!

I actually think that's the book I had when I was a child!

(did anyone beside me think it was gross that Dad threw up the sash?)

This is DAY Eleven
what's in it for you?

Welcome to the twelve days of ZAMfest All you have to do is comment to enter the daily drawing and I'll pull a new name from the hat each night to win an ebook from my backlist. The TWELFTH day will be Christmas, that's when I'll put the name of anyone who leaves me a comment on all twelve blogs, into a drawing and one very lucky person will win the grand prize-- a $50 dollar Amazon Gift Card. If you're new to the ZAMfest, it's not too late to go back and comment on earlier blogs. Good Luck!

DAY ten's winner is Cherrie Blake, I'll be contacting you to see which ebook you'd like!

Thanks for playing along! I've been wanting to say, I've missed a couple of days of replying to comments, wow, with christmas this close, I had to finally stop procrastinating and go out shopping. I've dragged home the feasting foods, and caught up with some of my last minute presents, but still, I'm not quite through yet! That doesn't mean I don't love and cherish each and every comment! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Sending you the most heartfelt, warmest wishes for a joyous holiday season,



  1. Well, I do believe I have that book somewhere with the 100's books I've bought my kids since they were born starting on 1981. Loved the movie! Thanks for sharing and happy holidays to you as well!


  2. I never thought about throwing up the sash before...yeah, I'm surprised I didn't. Sorry about all the last-minute stuff, that's no picnic. (I guarantee I've forgotten stuff that won't occur to me until right before I head to my brother's tonight.) Anyway, have a wonderful holiday!


  3. I think all little kids go through a phase of giggling over the line "threw up the sash". My nephew and niece are 12 and 9 and still demand that I read " A Visit from St Nick" before I leave on Christmas Eve. Have a Merry Christmas

  4. Wishing you and your family a Wonderful Christmas filled with love, laughter, food and fun!

  5. I will be brief today as well. In my country Christmas Eve is the most important day - family supper, presents, mass, etc. I don't want to leave my family and friends for long, so I just wish Happy Christmas to everybody.


  6. I hope you have a wonderful christmas with your family. Here's hoping you get everything done with minimal shopping lines!

  7. In my household too Christmas Eve is the more important day of the two so wishing everyone a Merry Christmas.

  9. I have enjoyed your daily posts. I hope you enjoy the holidays!

  10. Hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a great New Year! :)


  11. I did not have that book...I remember that my book was the size of me as a was fun to read every year!

    Happy Christmas Eve!!


  12. It's Christmas Day here, so Merry Christmas! May your heart always know laughter, your home always know love and your life always be filled with joy!

  13. That may be the same book my grandmother read to us (it's been so long). Happy Christmas!

  14. Christmas Eve is our main celebration over Christmas. It's when we eat the best meal and open presents. Like an idiot, I agreed to let my ex have the boys this evening, thinking I'd be okay with it because mom and dad agreed to have the main celebration tomorrow. Needless to say, I spent the whole day and evening crying. Worst day of my life. But tomorrow will be a better day and I can't wait to watch my boys open their presents :)

    Hope you have a lovely Christmas, ZAM.

  15. I never thought about "throwing up" the sash, and I bet I read that book a zillion times as a child, and even more when the kids were children. That's funny! I'll need to remember to check with the kids tomorrow to see if they ever thought of it.


  16. Funny, just before I checked in here, the family was just watching a clip of the first lady reading Twas the Night before Christmas and my DH said the same thing! I always thought a kerchief and a cap wasn't a lot to be wearing for a long winter's nap, but that's just me. LOL! Hope you and yours have a very wonderful Christmas, filled with new and special memories.
