Video Message from Santa....

My husband showed me this site today that he heard about from a buddy at work.  It's pretty neat! It's a site where you can customize a video message from Santa himself to be sent via email to your child, or even your spouse!!!

You can specify certain qualities that your chosen recipient has been doing well at, or needs to work on! It's really fun! And, it's perfect if your little one is pondering the reality of Santa! This will surely keep them believing!

I know that this may have come a little late, now that Christmas is over... but you may want to save this website in your favorites and bring it out during the year to keep your kiddos (or husband) in line! Enjoy!

Caramel Chocolate Pretzels

I'm slacking on my Christmas baking this year! I've only made sugar cookies (which still need to be frosted) and gingerbread (which all got eaten already)!

One of my husband's favorite treats are chocolate covered pretzels.  So the other night I decided to dip him up a batch.  About halfway through, I had an idea...
I wonder what it would taste like if I dipped the pretzels in caramel first, and then chocolate??

Well,  it takes twice as long,  but they turned out pretty darn good! I've had to hide all the pretzels now so that they will make it to Christmas!!! Standby... more baking today!!!

Treats for Teachers

My little 3 year old goes to a Morning Out program twice a week at our church and yesterday she took her teachers some Christmas goodies! We baked up some sugar cookies, frosted and sprinkled them, and then I bagged them up.
I baked some round cookies that would fit inside clean soup cans with the tab top lids I opened with a edgeless can opener.  I hot glued the lid back on once the tins were filled with cookies so the teachers would have to use the tab to open the can to get to the goodies inside!
I used Christmas scrapbook paper to decorate the outside and top, garnished withe some ribbon, a little holiday cookie cutter, and matching labels!

Countdown to Christmas

Twenty {20} Days Until Christmas!!! I still have so much shopping to do! This is a magnetic countdown calendar I made with my Cricut and a cookie sheet last year! You can read about it in this link.  My 6 year old LOVES to move the magnet each morning! 
I was hoping to get a couple more made to sell in my Etsy and Zibbet shops, but these past couple months have blown by so quickly, it feels like Halloween was just yesterday!

I hope you all are having a wonderful December so far!
