Getting things done is such a great feeling! Christmas shopping, 90% done, wrapping presents, done so far....trees up, lights up and the house looks festive....Christmas plans? They are all made too...Christmas Eve here with Julie (sister), her husband and little Jace and then Don and I are leaving for Wendover Nevada on Christmas morning for a couple of days.....No stress here and it is feeling good! Tomorrow we are going to go toy shopping for Jace. I already know what to get him so it will be easy. Then we are going to take warm blankets to the mission in Ogden and milk and eggs........there are also several light displays, so I am hoping to take Jace to one of them....
Yesterday I made an apron, hot pad and a little tree ornament for my step mom and got it in the mail.
the fabric is by moda and it is in fall tones....I made aprons for two of her friends a long time ago and she really liked them. She tried on one in almost the same colors and it looked so pretty.......I almost made chocolate peanut clusters for my brother...I make them every year and they are so easy and yummy....I have never shared a recipe before even though I cook and bake a lot so I thought I would give it a whirl!
Chocolate Peanut clusters:
one bag chocolate chips
one bag white chocolate chips
two cans salted spanish peanuts
Put chips in a glass bowl in the microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring in between until all the chocolate is melted....stir in the peanuts, dont forget all the salt in the bottom of the can! drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper and let harden
yummy good and kids love making these too....Olivia could make them by herself! Enjoy!
