Our favorites this season…


My favorite new Christmas craft (idea taken from another blog:).  It is just styrofoam cones wrapped with strips of Christmas fabric and then some little birdies on top…so cute…


Our favorite books to read (over and over again:)…Mortimer is such a precious little story about a mouse who “meets” baby Jesus and Are you Grumpy Santa is hilarious!


Our favorite new nativity scene…it’s from Playmobil and the kids love it:). 


Favorite yummy Christmas treat…brownies from Paula Dean..sooooo good.  Here is the recipe:

2 cups sugar                     1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup vegetable oil           1 1/2 cups flour

4 eggs                                1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

6 tablespoons cocoa

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Blend together sugar, oil, eggs, cocoa, and vanilla.  Add flour; mix.  Add nuts; spread into greased 9 X 13 baking dish.  Bake for 25-30 minutes. 

Only 15 days left till Christmas…:)

  1. Hey! Something told me to check your blog today- always a blessing to hear from you even if it is indirectly. We have a new neighbor that just moved in and I needed to drop off a little something- so I think I will try out your brownie recipe. I am having supper club here this weekend and I have been thinking of you because I am making the appetizers you made at a function way back when- the club crackers that are wrapped in bacon- yummy! You didnt know you were being so helpful from so far away did you?? Thanks! I am so glad to see you got to spend time with Emily and Katie. Miss ya ! Hilary
