'Tis the season

To be jolly! I just love this time of year--as does everyone, I know. But making fudge in my tiny little kitchen while my homemade rolls baked in the oven was almost like heaven. Logan kept asking for a bite of the fudge before it was even done! I found the old Fantasy Fudge recipe online here. Instead of nuts, I added crushed Oreo's and I drizzled white chocolate on the top with more crushed oreos--super fun cookies and cream!! Tomorrow I'm making Rocky Road fudge, cream wafers (a family recipe),peppermint bark, and sour cream sugar cookies. Sorry to all my neighbors who now know what they are getting!! hehe We're also going to mail Logan's letter to santa at the Museum tomorrow--that is if we can get through the snow. Feels like we may never dig ourselves out of it!

I totally forgot to post these fun projects I made a couple weeks ago for the Hero Blog. We were to come up with some last minute gifts for Christmas. Here's the ornament I made:

I also made this hot cocoa holder--perfect for neighbors or teachers. Plus I always have extra cocoa packets on hand, so this is great for a last minute gift!

And here's some cards I made this week with goodies I had laying around my scrap room--gotta get this place clean!!

Have a wonderful night! Dream of sugarplums and candycanes!!

I just LOVE that Hot Cocoa card, what a great idea. I am saving that one for next year for sure. The fudge sounds yummy too!

A Very Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family!
