Now that Thanksgiving is over, it's time to get ready for Christmas.
This Advent Season I'm going to share with you some of our favorite family traditions.
Each year when we drag out our Christmas decorations, we eagerly go through our movie collection to find our favorite Christmas shows. Some of them are children's programs from long ago -- Frosty the Snowman, A Year without a Santa Claus, or Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.
I've been watching and listening to these programs ever since I was a little girl, but I never tire of them.
Included in our selections are our favorite Classic Christmas movies: Holiday Inn, Christmas in Connecticut, Meet Me in St. Louis, A Miracle on 34th Street, and It's a Wonderful Life. And what about National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation--too funny!
There are so many more, it's hard to list them all. And I haven't even touched on my favorite Hallmark Christmas movies. LOL. What about you? Do you have a favorite Christmas movie you watch each year?
Ainslee McKay's world is shaken when she discovers her twin sister has not only eloped with a man she barely knows but now Ainslee must fulfill their obligation at a tile works in Weston, West Virginia. Ainslee must learn the ropes and, if she can keep the tile works profitable, her brother will help her sell the business.
When Levi Judson arrives and shows Ainslee his designs for new tiles, she's impressed by his skill and passion for the business. But he's hiding his true reason for coming to Weston. And Ainslee knows he'd be crushed to learn his plans for a long career at McKay Tile Works are in vain since she intends to sell. Can the growing feelings between them survive if the truth comes to light--or is a future together as untenable as the future of the tile works itself? Buy the book HERE.

But Ellie has a proposal of her own: a pretend courtship to keep their unwanted admirers at bay.
Ellie's unpredictable childhood left her determined to safeguard her independence—and her plantation. Blaming herself for driving Graham away to war, she devises a plan to help them both. But when it goes awry, Ellie will face a choice: save her beloved property…or trust in a relationship that's becoming undeniably real. Buy the book HERE.
