First, I try to get lists from my family early! They usually give them to me after Thanksgiving, but I try to pin them down even earlier than that. Then I like to pick up things on sale, or that catch my attention whenever I知 out and about. I don稚 shop a lot, so it helps to look when I知 just running regular errands. So hopefully well before Christmas all the shopping will be done and spread out a bit cost-wise.

I make bears. I usually have a lot of bear orders for Christmas, so between writing and having fun with family (Thanksgiving and holiday decorating), I have to keep on top of those. I love making bears, so that makes it feel even more Christmas-like! I think of the joy they値l bring to those all over the world. I just shipped five to two different homes in Australia!

I decorate the day after Thanksgiving, normally. But this year, I値l be seeing my son one last time while he痴 still in Omaha, and we値l visit the wolf reserve and zoo to see the jaguars before he leaves the service next year. So, I値l be either decorating early or a little later than usual. I知 in a new home, having moved closer to my daughter and son-in-law, and I am expecting my first grandbaby next spring. Everything is new for me this year. Where do I put the tree? Where do I put all the nutcrackers? I used to always set them on the fireplace mantle, but there痴 not one in the new house. Change is fun, so I知 looking forward to having a 渡ew Christmas tradition here. My first of many.

When my mother was alive, we壇 go to special programs to watch Christmas plays and beautiful Christmas choral programs. I hope to do that here too. And, of course, we have our favorite Christmas movies to watch: Jingle All the Way, A Christmas Carol, The Snowman, Miracle on 34th Street, A Christmas Story, It痴 a Wonderful Life and more.

I have a huge kitchen counter so this year my daughter wants to have her friends over to bake cookies for church, and that will be fun too. I was just over helping decorate my daughter痴 home for fall while watching a Halloween movie, and she痴 going to come here and do the same with me. So that痴 something that I look forward to, helping her decorate for Christmas and coming back to my home to do the same.

Family means everything葉o a wolf pack, to my jaguars, and to me. And next year, we値l have a new addition to the family! So Christmastime will change again. Life is change and I try to always have the old and new combined so that I never get stuck in a rut, or have to say but we used to do it this way! Any way and every way is a good way to celebrate if you池e enjoying the holidays with family and friends!

In A VERY JAGUAR CHRISTMAS, a similar thing happens. The jaguar world is turned upside down when a little Arctic wolf pup is dropped off at a jaguar daycare. And so for them, this Christmas預nd every year after that謡ill never be the same. But in a really good way.


Heart of the Jaguar #5

As a protector of all jaguar-kind, Guardian agent Demetria MacFarlane isn稚 surprised to get a call near Christmas傭ut when she痴 sent to protect a cub whose species she didn稚 even know existed, her holiday season gets complicated. And it doesn稚 help that her partner is a distraction of the hottest kind.

Hotshot JAG agent Everett Anderson can handle dangerous poachers and wildlife traffickers, no problembut kids? Everett fears he値l be stuck cub-sitting under the Christmas tree, but working with one sexy Guardian she-cat may be the best present he痴 ever gotten.

We always have holiday lists going since our family is so large. This book sounds wonderful and one I'd love to read! I also love the cover. Thanks so much for the chance to win it!

You are a very busy lady...I want to see those bears! I used to do a lot of Christmassy things with the family, and at church. These days it's hard to get me out of the house, especially when it's cold and snowy. We still decorate some, and I confess, we have started already. We have Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas decorations around the house. I would love to read your bok0ks, thanks for writing them, and the chance to win!

I am just now getting ready for this Christmas season, and am
ordering my Christmas cards now to send out. We have a small family and I don't have to make list but we do carry on with traditions that we have had for years! Thank you for this giveaway.
(Ann Thaxton 9:53am October 8, 2016)

Thank you for the chance. I do everything last minute. I
decorate the tree and wrap presents on Christmas Eve.
(Tanja Dancy 10:01am October 8, 2016)

I start getting busy thinking about buying gifts and digging out the tree a week before Christmas. I do love the holiday, I'm just a procrastinator.
(Melanie Rosen 8:04pm October 8, 2016)

i love bears too -- have some tht my sister-in-law made
for me, complete with moveable arms and legs, sitting on
my headboard! i've cross-stitched some but not made any
huggable ones. maybe for my great-niece and nephew?
maybe. Have a great holiday! thanks.
(Sandy Haber 11:38am October 9, 2016)

Sounds like you have a busy but wonderful and heart
filling holiday season! I love decorating for holidays
but Halloween and Christmas are the best, so as soon as
the Halloween decorations come down, I'm planning
Christmas decorations and activities so that come
Thanksgiving dinner, the family gets their orders!
