Twelve Days of Christmas

Corrie and I fell in love with these little peg people.  

 
We want peg people in every shape and color.  
Caravan Shoppe has a fun selection of peg people. 
Try them all!!


 

We started with the Nativity. 
There are 12 people in this set and I thought it would be a perfect fit for a 12 Days of Christmas. 

 

I wrapped each little person like a little candy treat. 
I even added a scripture for each day to go along.  

 

I love reading
"...and it came to pass...." 


I was most nervous about the painting of the hair and faces and it ended up being my favorite part.  
Not so scary.  



Unless, you're Corrie and you decided 
to add eyes...then yes, they are scary. :)

Our little Nativity is all wrapped and 
ready for the Newlyweds first Christmas.

Howdy Pilgrim

 
We're having
a little fun at our house.
Just getting ready for next week.
 
 
We've made more treat boxes,
tucked some yummies inside
and delivered a few.
 
 
 
We're making these for
placecards for the big day. 
 
 
 
Our turkey day is happening
a little earlier due to
college daughter getting
 her wisdom teeth out next week. :(
 
Maybe these will make her happy.

Quick Holiday Treat

 
 
German Chocolate Brownies are one of my 
favorite GO-TO desserts. 
I hosted Book Club this month and needed something
chocolatey and rich at the end. 
These brownies fit the bill.  


 We read "The Light Between Oceans" 
and man are there some things to discuss!!
I highly recommend it however, it is not for the faint of heart.  
It is moral dilemma at it's finest!


Back to the brownies. 
Here's the recipe all typed up for you! 
These are easy to make ahead, freeze or eat straight out of the pan!

 I like to wrap them in wax paper and tie with twine.

Wait for It...

 
I have had a
bee in my bonnet
to get
my girls' advent calendars done.
 
Why? 
 
I    don't   know.
 
Just had to be done.
 
And uh, Christmas candy isn't on the shelves
 at the end of October, go figure? :)
 
But finally, on Nov. 1st,
they led me to where they
were unpacking the candy.
 
 
I made these little packets last year too.
Maybe it's a new tradition.
 
 
Love these papers.
 
 
But...it needed to be a little different.
So.... I mixed in something new!
 
 
 
How cute
is he? 
I should have made all Reindeers.
 
 
I cut them out
on a Silhouette Cameo.
 
 
I'm a little obsessed with
the packets right now.
Yep, I made them for Halloween.
 
 
And there are the cutest ones
for Thanksgiving;
I can hardly stand it.
 
I saw my girls this past weekend, and
 the calendars are delivered,
hung and ready to go.
 
 
They just get to look
at them for ~3 weeks.
 
Are you working on any
Christmas items?
