Chocolate Chip M&M Cookies for Santa

December 12, 2018 4 Comments
My kiddos love when I bake cookies for them, and they enjoy them even more when I allow them to help Mommy (that's me!) bake the cookies. And since it's the holiday season, we've been trying new cookie recipes.  I found the yummy recipe for these Double Chocolate Chip M&M Cookies (Santa's Cookies) on the Creme De La Crumb blog.  The kiddos helped me make a batch of these Chocolate Chip and M&M Christmas Cookies as one of our Thanksgiving dinner desserts, and we'll definitely make more for Santa on Christmas Eve. These cookies are so festive with the red and green M&Ms.

Seahawks Inspired Tinsel Wreath

Christmas will be here before we know, and I've been busy decorating my home, Christmas tree, and wrapping presents. I often buy crafting supplies from the local Dollar Tree. And I recently purchased a couple mini tinsel wreaths. I shared a Silver & Green Christmas Wreath for Day 1 of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop, and now I'm sharing another Seahawks inspired wreath made with items from the Dollar Tree.

Seahawks Themed Christmas Tree

I may no longer live in Washington, but I am still a Seattle Seahawks fan! For a third year in a row, we are have a Seahawks themed Christmas tree!  Since the colors green and blue are my favorite colors, I really enjoy decorating my tree and home in the Seahawks theme. I usually wait until the day after Thanksgiving to put up our tree, but this year I put the tree up the weekend before Thanksgiving. I thought it would be lovely to have the tree up and decorated while we enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner.

Yesterday while the kiddos were at school, my husband and I did some Christmas shopping. I have wrapped only a few of their gifts so far. I decided to make crochet gift tags for a couple of the presents. And yes, I have Seahawks wrapping paper!

Smores Cookie Mix in a Jar

December 05, 2018 13 Comments
My kiddos love for me to bake homemade cookies for them. I usually bake gluten free peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip raisin cookies for them, but since it's the holiday season, I've been trying different cookie recipes. While grocery shopping, I found some Hershey's S'mores Pieces, and there was a recipe for S'mores Cookies on the back of the bag. I thought it would be an awesome recipe to put in a jar as a gift, and I also made a batch of the cookies for my kiddos, too!
