Throwback Thursday Blog-Style #184: December 28, 2017

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 28th, 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 recipe posts for the posts I wanted to share, and the year before that, I shared past review posts. It was fun remembering some of the recipes and reviews I had forgotten about. This year I will be sharing random posts.

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. 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. Sadly, I am going to have to say, I will be deleting posts that do not follow the rules. The spirit of Throwback Thursday Blog-Style is to share posts from the past. Please follow the guidelines.
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 are my Throwback Thursday posts:

Wordless Wednesday: December 27, 2017 (w/linky) : Christmas Celebrations

My oldest children and the granddaughters came down to celebrate Christmas with us on Christmas Eve. The young children put on a Christmas play that they put together all on their own, with Tabitha writing the script. I did type it out though. Then we had our meal and exchanged gifts before heading to church for the Christmas Eve Candlelight service.

They are starting to feel a bit squished, so it looks like it is time to change the arrangement.

We read the Christmas story from the Bible and the children took turns setting out the figures.

There are the wise men, beginning their travels.

Even Melk got a "stocking."

Then he wanted to hang out with the wise men to watch us open our presents.

Stocking time

We played a game to see who would be the first one to get to GIVE a present. The wise men and a shepherd traveled the toilet paper road toward the tree.

For some reason I didn't get pictures of the first gifts being given out. But here are the children opening their new pjs, which they wore for the rest of the day.

Time to exchange more gifts.

Now for the gifts from grandma.

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

No button currently, and there won't be one until I can figure it out seeing as Photobucket has changed things.
