Welcome to Christmas in July, 2017

Welcome back to Christmas Tree Lane for Christmas in July!  After being quiet for a few months following Christmas, it is time for us to start getting back on the Christmas trail.



I have a confession to make.

We aren't celebrating Christmas at home this year.


That's right. My family and I have decided to celebrate in Cabo San Lucas this year and that means a whole lot of different planning.  I will share a long the way.

Until then, though, I want to celebrate with you for Christmas in July!  Every Wednesday I will post some fun things to do and fun recipes to try to help you celebrate on July 25. I don't know a lot of people who celebrate this holiday, so I celebrate it on my own.  AND I have a wonderful time doing it.

First off, check out these movies this month from Hallmark.com  I am giddy with excitement over all the choices!

  6. I printed out the Hallmark CIJ movie schedule a few weeks ago and have it laying on my stitching table. I plan to record them all and then stitch as fast as my fingers will go to finish the stockings I'm making this year!

  8. Celebrating Christmas on holidays is definitely different! But still fun! All my family are going to different places this year so we aren't having our annual christmas lunch - I'm a little sad because it'll be the first year ever! But a time to start new traditions! Christmas in July cookies sound great!

  10. I have always said I would do Christmas in July, but more of preparing for December so I don't feel so overwhelmed when it comes around, I had no idea this was actually a thing! I honestly have not heard of most of these movies : )
