Life with Lily ~ Giveaway

Winter and Christmas time always brings me many fond memories from my childhood when we would all gather in the evening to listen to Mom read several chapters from a book before bedtime. We would eat popcorn and apples, or sometimes enjoy a mug of hot chocolate, or a glass of apple cider while we listened.

Christmas time always meant new books. Or at least new to us. It was around Christmas time when my parents would first go to the library and bring home armloads of books, which would then continue until spring came and things got too busy to do loads of extra reading.

With winter and Christmas just around the corner I decided I would like to give my dear readers a chance to win the entire set of Lily books. You can keep them for yourself and give them to someone on your Christmas gift giving list.


To enter all you have to do is leave a comment telling me of one of your favorite winter evening activities.

For a second entry post a link to this giveaway to your blog or Facebook and then come back and leave another comment telling me you did.

Since I'm in the Christmas mood I'm giving you a third entry if you either like this Facebook page or send me a friend request on my personal page.

I will be choosing a winner on Monday November 28th just in time to kick off the official Christmas season.

  1. One of my favorite memories is during snows the local park board would build us fires on the street corner where they'd close the street for sled rides. All was good until I melted my new rubber boots by getting too close.

  4. Thanks for your give away contest of the books! My favorite winter memory was building snow forts by porch light and warming up by a roaring fire in our fireplace. My mom would make us hot chocolate and we then played Old Maid. Does anyone play that card game anymore?! Wishing you all a blessed Thanksgiving next week.

  31. Oh how nice! I'd love to read your books and share them with my girls! I'm buying the set someday soon here (unless I win this!!!)! : ) Winter evenings are MADE to spend with your nose in a book, or doing a jigsaw puzzle with the family, working on a crossword puzzle or sudoku puzzle together... stuff like that! Good times ahead...

  36. During the winter time I love grinding and pressing apples to make fresh apple cider. My children find it fascinating and love to help out. It's a real treat when you live in LA and you can always warm it up if its cold outside or drink it fresh if it's a hot day.

  37. One of my favorite winter time activities is to get all bundled up with a blanket and sit down and read a good book. I'm not a fan of the snow and cold so if I can stay inside and read all day it's the best way to spend a cold day.

  40. This year my favorite activity is working on rag rugs with my daughters while my husband & son are doing scrimshaw (carving designs onto horns). We also all like to play board games, play piano & sing & read together as a family. We all have individual things we enjoy, but I like it best when we can all be in the same room. No TV, no outside noise, just calm & peaceful evenings. When its just me I love to crochet. :). Blessings! Julie
