|Kate & I in Central Park|
Greetings Friends…I want to tell you just a bit about me. My name is Leanne Anderson and I own The Whole Country Caboodle. I love designing, especially for Henry Glass. They are a great fabric company and have given me some great opportunity. So I am very grateful to them.
The most important people in my life are my family…my husband Ed, of almost 32 years. My three amazing children, Shelby, Taylor and Kaytlyn and their spouses. My latest loves are my two little grandchildren, Toby and Leighton. They light up my life and are so special. And I can’t leave out my little four-legged family members. Chloe and Georgia are my Boston terrier dogs…we love them too. So from my family to yours, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I'm excited to show you our holiday project..."Snow-Mats Land" This fun little table topper can be used all winter. It's fun and fast!!

1. What is my favorite holiday food?
I think my favorite holiday food would be frosted sugar cookies. I remember the days that we would sit around the table and frost cookies…oh how I loved the frosting!! My least favorite holiday food would have to be FRUITCAKE!!
2. Favorite Family Tradition:
Christmas Eve service…Candlelight!! Love the service and it has been a tradition since I can remember.
3. Did I like sitting on Santa’s lap?
Well, wasn’t my favorite thing but it seemed necessary in order to give him my list!!!
4. Was there a gift I desperately wanted? Did I get it?
Well, yes it was a pair of crushed velveteen bell-bottoms. I was in junior high, I knew if I got them I would be the envy of every girl…and yes, I got them and I have to think that I was the envy!!
5. What’s your favorite holiday movie?
I would have to say “It's a Wonderful Life”…Mary, is it really you!!
6. Favorite holiday song?
7. Do I make holiday presents?
I love to make presents. I have great intentions to get more done than I do, but I love to make small quilt projects and I’m looking forward to making some things for my two new grandchildren.
8. What kind of tree do I prefer?
I like a Frasier Fir…love the smell. We love to go out as a family and cut our trees together, it’s so much fun.
9. Favorite holiday memory?
I love Christmas and I have so many wonderful memories. As a child it was waiting to see what Santa brought. My brother and I would get up very early, and I remember how I felt when I saw what was under the tree…it was so exciting!!
10. Do I like a big family gathering or a small dinner followed by hot chocolate by the fire?
I love my family, and I want to have them around. Big or small, I just want my family.
I pray this gives you a little more insight into who I am and what Christmas means to me. The most important reason that I celebrate Christmas is because of the birth of Jesus. Without Him we would not have anything to celebrate…He is the Reason for the Season!! Make sure to post your complete list of secret BIG words on the Henry Glass blog from November 20 – 26, 2011. We will pick a winner of the Grand Prize Giveaway of assorted fabrics and a small gift from each designer. I will also pick a winner from my comments that are posted. Share your favorite tradition with me and I will pick a winner from them.
