Merry Christmas

on December 25, 2013

I just love Christmas and this time of year. I have picked up a few odd jobs on top of my already loaded plate so I haven’t been able to keep you updated on all things Christmas at our house.

Cooking & cleaning are on my list of favorite things so I’ve been spending a lot of time looking up new recipes for this years celebrations, shopping and prepping in the kitchen.
Today I made a great desert dish from my friend Rachel’s Blog , actually I made two. The chocolate trifle was a hit at both my husband and I’s family gatherings.

The local Walmart didn’t have mint Oreos so I used Winter Red Oreos and Mint M&Ms for a festive feel and taste. Plus I’m like totally addicted to mint.

This was me really getting into the Christmas cooking mood 🙂 I got a new candle I will be breaking out very soon too.

Both my husbands and my extended family’s do a pass around game with the story “The Night Before Christmas” it’s a fun way to get a gift and not break the bank.

Below is a picture of a gift Emmett got from my Aunt Donna, after our game was over.

As you can see Santa came to our house as soon as our little man went to sleep. So I must at least try to get some sleep for our big Christmas celebration at our house.
