Throwback Thursday Blog-Style #132: December 29, 2016

Welcome back to... 

I know, I know, Throwback Thursday seems to be all about sharing pictures from the past, great memories that mean something to you, that you would like to share with others. At least that is how it appears to me. Throwback Thursday wasn't something I was participating in, and then I came up with an idea.

I thought it would be great fun and a help to my blog to share old content, but not just any old content. Each week I will share an old blog post from a previous year, any year, BUT it has to be from the current week (for example, something I've posted around December 29th, from any previous year)  I will go in, edit the post if needed, add a pinnable image if I don't already have one, and share it on Facebook.

Last year I focused solely on review posts for the posts I wanted to share. It was fun remembering some of the review products I had forgotten about. This year I will be focusing on recipes I have shared in the past.

Would you like to join in? You do not need to edit your past post in any way, you don't need to create a pinnable image, though it couldn't hurt, in fact it will help your blog traffic to add quality pinnable images to your posts.

Just go into your archives, choose a favorite post from this current week from any previous year, and link it up below. (If you don't have anything from this current week, it is still okay to link up with a post from a previous year around this time. And if you haven't been blogging for a full year, feel free to share any earlier post.)

Please make sure to share from the past as instructed above if you would like your post to qualify for the Featured Post. Most weeks I find that there is a wonderful post, but I can't feature it because it is a current post, not from the past. I love reading the current posts, if you want to share them. However, I am not able to feature them, because the spirit of Throwback Thursday Blog-Style is to share posts from the past.
Thank you

I will be pinning posts to my appropriate Pinterest boards and will be randomly selecting a Featured Throwback Thursday post to share next week. Just a note, I will be sharing a picture from your post if you are selected as the featured post, but I will link back to your post. I will ALWAYS give credit and link back. By linking up you are giving me permission to use your picture in the post. 

Here is my Throwback Thursday post:

Here is this week's randomly selected

Jenn from Books, Bargains, Blessings shared The Five Favorite Christmas Gifts I Ever Gave.

To participate, link up below. It would be great if you could visit several of the other posts that have linked up. Stop by, comment, and pin images so we can help each other.

If you would like to help spread the news:

Wordless Wednesday: December 28, 2016 (w/linky) : Celebrating Christmas

Christmas Eve
Couldn't make it to the Candlelight service at church, so we had our own, and also made a gingerbread house and a candy cane wreath.

Kids went to bed, I got the breakfast casserole in the crock pot, and presents under the tree.
Bed time for mommy.

Daddy came home and suddenly there were more presents under the tree.

Traditional top-of-the-stairs photo, with an additional person.
Silly daddy.

That's better.

The aftermath.

Visiting my oldest son and daughter in law.

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!
Happy New Year!
See you in 2017!

Looking forward to seeing your Wordless (or not so wordless) Wednesday posts this week.
