Merry Happy Everything

in All Posts

Whenever you are, whatever you celebrate, I hope the end of 2011 brings you love and light. 


On behalf of the Husband, Maggie, James, BabyHTP, and myself, I wish you and your family a Merry Happy Everything


Thanks for reading Healthy Tipping Point and supporting Operation Beautiful.  Γ’β‚¬ΛœTis very, very much appreciated!


May your holiday season and new year be filled with health, happiness, and epic paper crowns from lovely little crackers (Americans really need to adopt the cracker tradition).

    I have parents that are both from the UK, so I will be having to deal with wearing a paper crown tomorrow! I am also looking forward to Boxing Day dinner with my family as well b/c it extends Christmas a little longer! πŸ˜€

    We do the crackers every year! One thing I love about my maw-in-law, she has the cutest traditions! Next big holiday for our family is Chinese New Year…we have two children coming from China early in 2012!

    P.S. Diggin’ the Hubster’s cardie. Gotta have a cardie with the paper hat… is he channelling Val Doonican? (ask your MIL to explain the reference!)

    Hey there Caitlin- sad story out of Charlotte: two unlicensed midwives, a home water birth, a baby in distress, and no happy ending. Thoughts?

    Merry Everything to you too!
    My parents decided to do christmas crackers this year too haha (we’re dutch and live in the netherlands, so it is not common at all here). But it is fun!

    Wishing you, “the husband,” baby HTP, Maggie & James the very very best for 2012 -> may it be filled with health, love, laughter and happiness.


  • Lou December 25, 2011, 9:16 am

    we have no recent ties to the UK and have done crackers for years since they have sold them in stores in the US for as long as i can remember. i think the cracker tradition is more alive here than you would think! we usually wait for them to go on sale right before the holidays though because those things can be crazy expensive!

  • Rebecca @ Naturally Healthy and Gorgeous December 25, 2011, 9:27 am

    Merry Christmas!

  • Anne December 25, 2011, 9:39 am

    Have a wonderful Christmas! I started reading 2 or more years ago when I first started running and haven’t stopped! You have a balanced perspective and continue to write interesting and thought-provoking posts. PS: Love the crown picture…looks like you have the “pregnancy glow!”

    I found this blog earlier this year and it is has inspired me to start a new healthy life, which I just started documenting in my own blog. Thanks for the daily inspiration!

    We did the crackers for the first time this year! I found them at World Market and they were a hit. Everyone got a kick out of the crowns. Happy Christmas, Caitlin.
