Happy Holidays

I thought I would post about some great sites for the holidays. They are in no particular order.


Send out an e-mail to santa. Get a instant response. This has become a holiday tradition.


Give your kids proof Santa was there.


Great candy and cookie ideas for Christmas.

I will add more if I think of them.

Too Long!

It has been way to long since my last post. Partly because our old computer gave out. And partly because of my laziness. So to fill everyone in, we had a great Halloween. Shelby dressed up as the cutest care bear you have ever seen. Hunter was a bag of garbage, but at the last minute decided it would be to hard to maneuver around the neighborhood in. Porter was a dinosaur. So glad I make costumes because they last a lot longer than the store bought variety. Hunter came home with way to much candy. And the following day he had it sorted out, and had written down each piece of candy and how many of each kind. He told us this way he will know if anyone has taken any. I guess you have to protect your candy from thieving brother and sister.

We have snow and I have been listening to Christmas music. So It feels like we already had Thanksgiving. I however refuse to put up the Christmas decorations until after Thanksgiving. I am so excited for all the fun baking and treats. I better watch myself. One of our favorite treats is white chocolate popcorn. I made it for neighbor gifts last year. I was being lazy and didn't want to bake 20 cinnamon tea rings. So anyway here is how you make the white chocolate popcorn: 2 bags microwave popcorn with butter popped and put in bowl, 12 oz white chocolate chips or bark melted. Pour over popcorn, stir until well coated, pour onto waxed paper to cool. You can add all kinds of things to this to make it even yummier. I promise once you make this you won't want to put it down.
