    Favorite holiday memory = gathering EVERYONE (and I mean everyone – huge family) at my home for Christmas, with everyone’s stockings hanging over the fireplace. There were 20 stockings and everyone helped decorate the tree. It’s my favorite time of year, and the best time of year. Memories to be cherished forever.

    I’m already a Facebook fan :)

    My best holiday memory is one when our extended family spent a Christmas in a snowed-in huge cabin in Breckenridge, CO. We had Christmas brunch where each of us shared all of the things that we had done to donate to charity that year. Everyone ended up in tears sharing about things they did that were special.

    We once spent Thanksgiving in Ruidoso, NM and had snow! It was like a holiday miracle for us, seeing as we lived in Houston where it never snowed. That was amazing.

    My best memory would be my grandfather dressing up as Santa every year for us, and giving out gifts. Unfortunately, we don’t get to see that anymore :(

    My favourite holiday memories are all between the ages of 3-8, going out every Christmas Eve for a drive around the city to see the Christmas lights (and to see if we could spot Santa in the sky!)

    That’s an easy one – my favorite holiday memory was almost 4 years ago. I brought my itty, bitty newborn home from the hospital two days before Christmas. My first born, he was the best gift anyone could ask for – we spent the holiday sleeping under the tree (basking in the glow of lights) just getting to know each other.
    I’m looking forward to doing the same thing with all three of my children (3, 2, and 6m) again this year.

    A mini food processor wold be perfect for making homemade baby food for my youngest and whipping up healthy meals for my two toddlers (not to mention a really great gift for me :0)

    My favorite holiday memory is Thanksgiving 2006. It was just my husband and kids, and my parents. We had it all–great company, outstanding food, and a ton of laughs. My mom and I prepared all of the food together. We had such a wonderful time! And it will always be a very special memory for me, because my mom passed away two days later. It was our very last cooking marathon together, our very last holiday together, and such a treasured memory.

    Thanks for the chance to win such a great prize!

    My favorite holiday memory is bittersweet. My grandfather passed away the week before Thanksgiving in 2002. Due to the amount of effort it took everyone to get home for the funeral, we combined Thanksgiving and Christmas that year to ease the financial burden of traveling. We dubbed it “Thanksmas.” We had both turkey and ham, set up the Christmas tree and opened presents. When the tradition started, we held Thanksmas on a random weekend that everyone could make it, but now we hold it on Thanksgiving day. It’s our special day. We do things differently than most families. It’s acceptable to eat pie at 11am and no one bats an eye. As the oldest grandchild, I make it a point to pull out my grandparents’ photo albums and show them to my younger cousins who may not remember Grandpa as well I as I do. This is my daughter’s first Thanksmas. I wish my grandfather was alive to meet her, but my grandmother loves her more than anything. I think she’s the best gift of all this year.

    Julie @ Peanut Butter Fingers — November 9, 2009 @ 7:46 am

    OMG great giveaway! I’m borrowing my mom’s food processor so this would be amazing! My favorite holiday memory is my family’s annual Rudolph hunt. When my sister & I were younger, my dad would sneak out into the woods behind our house in Illinois and hide flashlight w/ a red bulb in the forest. The whole family would then bundle up and go look for Rudolph in the woods! My sister & I would get so excited when we’d see his red nose! :)

    Krissy — November 9, 2009 @ 7:50 am

    My best holiday memory as a kid – was going to bed with only a few gifts under the tree and then waking up in the morning to a huge mound of presents under the tree – after Santa had visited (hehe). As a family we would have to open each gift one by one and watch what everyone else got – it would take us hours in the morning to get through all the presents – but it something we continue to do this day as adults – I love being with family on Christmas morning – and yes I still try to hoard my presents until the end so I am the last left opening (my twin bro gets so mad at me each and every year hehehe)
    xoxo – great giveaway! I have been looking EVERYWHERE for the mini food processor, I use my big one SO often, but really only need the smaller one most often ( plus much easier to clean!)

    Favorite holiday season memory: there are lots! A recent one happened last year. My husband and I were driving north to be with his family for Christmas. We hit a snow storm on the way and were stuck in a Connecticut hotel for two nights. We’d been stressed with work and dealing with illness, so, though we were sad to lose a couple days with family, it was a wonderful forced-rest weekend together – complete with snow falling and a fireplace. Great memory.

    My favorite holiday memories are the Christmases spent at my grandparent’s house. My uncle gave a gift one year that, when wrapped, looked like a snow shovel. It became the family joke, and every year, somebody gets a gift wrapped to look like a shovel (or one year, a snow blower!) We sit in a huge circle and take turns opening our gifts. I love it!

    Cat — November 9, 2009 @ 8:17 am

    I think one of my favorite holiday memories was our 1st Christmas spent in Florida. Everything seemed so surreal. Holiday spirit was overflowing & no snow to be seen! My favorite part was Christmas morning & DD, (who was 3), got a Barbie Volkswagen Beetle for her dolls. She opened it up & said, “I can’t believe it! A really, really big car!” Sounds silly, but her innocence & sheer joy over something so simple has remained a very fond memory for DH & I! :)

    I would have to say my favorite holiday memories involve my extended family’s yearly Christmas Eve dinner. We don’t do it on Christmas Eve anymore – usually the Saturday before Christmas now – but when I was a kid growing up I always looked forward to that night. The menu was always the same: Oyster Stew, fried oysters, fried shrimp, and meatballs in red sauce!

    Looking forward to continuing this holiday tradition again this Christmas!

    tmneill — November 9, 2009 @ 8:22 am

    Growing up, every year my dads side of the family would spend the Thanksgiving holiday at one of siblings house. It was great, we have remained close to all our cousin and it continues to this day, though we have changed it from Thanksgiving to a weekend in the summer.

    can i butter you up by saying my fav memory is decorating our dorm with christmas lights? lol

    but seriously, my fav memory is an annual occurrence. when we were little, my pop-pop would gather all of us and read the night before christmas. before he died 16 years ago, he had a professional tape made, background music and all, and gave everyone a copy. now, after a very long christmas eve (we never get home before midnight) we change into our pjs and pop the tape in. it’s a great way to unwind and remember him. now that we live in “his” house, it makes me feel even closer to him, and sometimes i’ll even sit on the floor where i did years ago, as if he were still here. dan never got to meet pop-pop, but loves listening to his voice and imagining what type of man he was. i’m super excited for morgan to listen to her great-grandfather this year!

    My favorite holiday is Christmas at my godfather’s house each year. So many gifts under the tree. Each time we were sleeping there and in the morning my godmother made a yummy breakfast. I always loved what she cooked.

    I am lucky to have a fun family so we have a lot of good memories, but one that sticks out is when my grandparents were alive. We would sing Christmas Carols every year at my grandparents after dinner. Everyone sings fairly well except my grandfather and my aunt. We decided to do the 12 days of Christmas with my father pointing to each person to do a different part. My grandfather’s rendition of 8 Maids a Milking was the most off key, funniest thing I ever heard, but he sold it every time. I am sure my dad thought he was funny, so he made my Aunt Maureen be 5 golden rings. For some reason she can hold a tune in Spanish better than in English, so she began to translate. I was probably about 12 years old at the time, and I just remember us all laughing for hours.

    Hi Jessica, it was great meeting you on Saturday. :) The vanilla cupcake with chocolate frosting… sooooo good.
    I would use this little guy to make those protein pancakes a few posts back – I’ve never heard of processing the oats like that! Let’s see, what’s my best holiday memory? I always loved going to my aunt’s house for Christmas dinner because her house was full of weird and interesting stuff (like a mannequin that she dressed up in seasonal outfits) plus tons of delicious food that everyone brought. At home, Christmas morning means sticky buns! We make them the night before and let them rise in the fridge, then put them in the oven so they’re ready by the time we’re done opening presents. Last year my little (21 years old) sister staged a protest when Mom considered making something else. There’s no substitute for sticky buns.
    p.s. I’m a fan on Facebook now!

    The Candid RD — November 9, 2009 @ 9:17 am

    oh WOW!! What a great giveaway! My favorite Holiday memories involve my grandparents. On my mother’s side, my grandpa used to get so excited when we would visit for Christmas, he would take me on a walk through their neighborhood to show me the giant star and santa display in town.
    My father’s mom used to make the BEST lasagna for Christmas, it was a memory all by itself. I can still taste it….SO GOOD!

    I just found your blog yesterday! Talk about timing.

    I have never owned a food processor, but have really been wanting to get one lately … so obviously my best holiday memory doesn’t involve a cuisinart :)

    There are so many good memories to choose from, so I will just pick one of the most recent. Last year I got to see my aunt and uncle for the first time in close to a decade. We all had a wonderful Thanksgiving at my grandma’s. It was so great to catch up.

    genesis — November 9, 2009 @ 9:22 am

    my fave holiday memory is when my brothers and I get together. its a big issue for us since my other brother is in the army and rarely gets the holidays off. having the three of us together means the world to me because when we were younger we werent always together during the holidays.

    thanks for the opportunity.

    My best holiday memory is going caroling with my little a capella choir in high school. We’d go to hospitals and nursing homes, and it was so great to bring cheer into those peoples’ lives, even just for an evening.

    hey cutie! So excited about this give away! My favorite holiday memory is my first christams with my husband. We spent it together alone and just enjoyed each others company. We slept in, ate a wondeful breakfast and opened presents in front of the fire. It was my first christams away from my family but was so wondeful because we were now starting our own family! loved it!!
