The JaneDear Girls Holiday Facts & Favorites…


WHAT IS ON YOUR CHRISTMAS WISH LIST THIS YEAR?
SUSIE: If I could have anything I wanted for Christmas this year, I would ask Santa for my dream car: the Dodge Challenger in Cherry Red. My current car is breaking down and I don‘t have the money to get a new one so if Santa could bring me a brand new car with a big ribbon on it, I would be most grateful!
 

DANELLE: A Cowboy!
 

WHAT ARE YOUR HOLIDAY PLANS?
DANELLE: I‘m heading home to Texas to be with my family – eat Mom‘s cooking and help Dad with the cows!
 

SUSIE: During the holidays, I love going home to spend time with my family and friends. I love to go to Christmas parties and host some of my own. In Utah, there‘s so many things you can do like ice skating, sledding, go see the Christmas lights at Temple Square, take a carriage ride and one of my favorite things to do when I‘m home – country dancing!
 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE HOLIDAY DISH?
SUSIE: One of my favorite holiday treats that I look forward to every year are homemade caramels! A friend of mine gave me some one year and I fell in love with having them around the holidays, so now I make my own. Just a couple weeks ago I posted a blog on our website www.thejanedeargirls.com where I show you how to make them so you can share them with your friends and family!
 

DANELLE: My mom‘s chocolate cake!
 

FAVORITE CHRISTMAS MEMORY/TRADITION?
DANELLE: I love playing the broom game with my grandma. One person stands in the middle blind folded with a broom in their hand. Everyone else stands in a circle surrounding the person in the middle. The person in the middle spins around and when he/she stops, they poke someone standing in the circle. The person who gets poked with the broom stick makes a noise and if the person in the middle guesses who he/she is, he/she can get out of the middle of the circle. If he/she guesses wrong, they have to keep spinning and guessing until they guess right.
 

SUSIE: I am the youngest of seven kids and I grew up with many of my nieces and nephews and so every year, my mother would make all of us matching pajamas that we would open on Christmas Eve and then we‘d take a picture and put it in a book until the next year when we got a brand new pair.
