Homemade Christmas Gifts.

I am super busy today. I am making some homemade Christmas gifts.. Well goodie boxes.
So far the Turtles are done and ready to be packed.
Now I am whipping up the Oreo Truffles, then the fudge and then the peanut brittle. I am gifting these to "My Boys"..
I know they will love and appreciate the goodie boxes and I know I don't have a bunch of money to buy other things.
They are also all coming for dinner on Monday night. Beef and Noodles.. can't wait it will be great fun.
Have fun everyone!

A visitor

Last night one of my Daycare Mom's came to pick up her son. She walked in with the most adorable little visitor. Her new puppy.. Isn't she just adorable..
I would tell you her name but I don't know how to spell it.. It is Sweetie in Spanish. She honestly is a Sweetie.. I told her mommy no bringing puppies to my house. It gives me the fever. I don't want or need another dog.... but oh my, my that face could make me want one quick.

Just adorable!!

Gingerbread House

I bought a Gingerbread House Kit at Walmart recenty. It was made by Wilton. I liked it because the House was actually already put together the kids and I just had to decorate it. This is what it looked like out of the box. It came with a few assorted candies, Gumdrops, and little round candy balls. We added some leftover candy and cookies.
The Daycare kiddos loved doing this project.
The Candy Corn and little Oreos left from Halloween worked perfectly.
The Wilton set was really nice except I had a problem with the icing which was included. You were supposed to add water and it was supposed to be as thick as toothpaste.
Didn't work. Thank goodness my sister stopped by and saw the mess we were making. She ran to her house and got us some good ole Pillsbury frosting. Worked beautifully.

These kits are very reasonably priced at only $10.00.
They have several other kits available.
Check them out on your next trip to Walmart..
PS... does anyone else call it Wally World???

The best time of day 9:30 am.

I love 9:30a.m. It is my favorite time of the day... Why you ask... Well see my TV below. See that picture. That Picture can make 4 Daycare Boys sit still..See, They won't move. They will be frozen in front of Dinosaur Train for 30 minutes.
Its Wonderful.

Ok.. gotta go, while they sit still I can unload the dishwasher, Throw in a load of laundry. Take the dog out. Mop the kitchen floor and possibly clean both bathrooms.
Love Dinosaur Train!!!
Thank you Dinosaur Train!

My Favorite Things Temptations!

I Love to Cook...
Love to...
I don't cook fancy dishes.
I make things like,
Lasagna, Beef and Noodles, Roast, Spaghetti, Mac and Cheese, Just the usual dishes.
One of the reasons I love to cook is My Temptations...
Do you have any? If not I want you to TRUST me.. Buy some. You will thank me.
They make cooking easy. You can take your Temp-Tations from the Freezer to the Table to the Oven to the Dishwasher.. That's right they are Dishwasher safe. You won't need the Dishwasher because these dishes clean up so easy.
I have this set above. Mine are in the yellow. I love them. The Temp-tations Old World 11-pc. Square Oven-to- Table Set and sells for under $50.00. Now that's a good deal. I am going to be truthful since I am not a fancy cook I really don't need all of the baskets that come with the dishes. But they are super nice.
This is a new set they have with a neat Carry Tote. It is called the Temp-tations Old World 9-pc. Set w/Thermal EmbroideredTote No I don't have this set. I would love it. Of course I would want it in the Yellow or Blue color.

Now I don't need dishes, honest I don't. If I did need dishes I would order these.They are the Temp-tations Old World 16-piece Dinnerware Service for 4. I hadn't seen these till now. I can tell you that if they are half as nice as the other Temp-Tations then they are great. They come in different colors. All of the Temp-Tations colors are beautiful.
So if you need a gift for someone for the holidays. I suggest Temp-Tations.
I was not compensated by QVC or Temp-Tations in any way. I have had my Temp-Tations for a couple of years now. My mom loved QVC and she loved buying for us girls. She purchased these for me. I have several sets. These would make gifts for any occasion for your favorite cook. Birthday, Anniversary, Christmas, or even a wedding present. If you buy a set let me know how you like them... You will love them... TRUST ME!!!

My Blog

I have been really neglecting my blog. I have just had so much going on in the last few months.
I am going to attempt to turn over a new leaf. My goal is going to be first of all to clean this blog up. I have some things that need removed, some things I would like to add.
After I have it all cleaned up, I would like to try to blog at least 2 times each week.. at least. We shall see if it happens.
Wish me luck. I am just hoping that my life is finally a little calmer and I can devote a little time to my blog. I love blogging.
I love entering giveaways something else I haven't done much of lately. I enjoy visiting other peoples blogs and seeing what is going on in the world.
Thanks for stopping by, hoping to see you here again soon.
Take Care
