Every year for many years my friends and I get together on New Years Eve and Celebrate the end of the old and the beginning of the new. This year is going to be a little different. I am not having or going to a New Years Eve party. I am helping to host one though. This year is all about the Kiddo and her friends. With all the loss this year I really do not feel like celebrating, I do feel like laughing and enjoying the joy, fun, and novelty of the Kids first New Years Eve Party. Continue reading →
As many of you know the Kiddo, my family and I have lost some very special people this year and I searched for a way to honor them through the holidays and for years to come. After searching the inter-webs … Pinterest … I found a great option. There are many different versions of the memory ornament from a photograph of the loved one inside the ornament to a tiny scroll letter to heaven. I liked the idea of feathers.
One of my Favorite flavors of the Holiday Season is Peppermint. Peppermint in Coffee, Cookies, Candy canes, it’s everywhere.
Check out the YouTube video below.
My favorite Peppermint treat is Peppermint Bark. You can make it so many ways with so many different combinations of ingredients. This is my recipe using Almond bark instead of chocolate chips. I like almond bark because of the smooth consistency and ease of melting. You can use your favorite chocolate if you want. If the Almond bark or Chocolate are not smooth when melting add 1 tsp of vegetable oil to smooth it out.
This ia a gift ideas that is right up my alley. The Holidays are a great time for DIY gifting. No need for the Mall the craft store will do. In the case of these adorable and glitzy candle holders I got the supplies from the Dollar Store.
