I'm so excited that my brother and his family will be coming down from Canada to join us for Christmas this year.  I feel like now that school is out for the kids, the Christmas holiday time has really begun.  The one thing I 'm a little behind on is wrapping gifts.  Poor kids!  The tree has been up for weeks and I already bought their gifts but I just haven't wrapped them yet.  They probably think they are getting a lump of coal for Christmas!  LOL  Anyhoo...I love to make my gifts extra puuurdy.  That includes a fancy tag!  I gave a little tutorial on the Spellbinders blog if you want to see how I made this one.  I actually created a stamp out of fun foam for this one!

We had a such fun Christmas Party at our house last night.  Because my fudge didn't turn out so well, we had to eat snowmen instead.  They were melting and very, very upset.  

The girls helped me make them and we had such a blast!  These guys each have their own personality!  I first saw them on Pinterest but the original recipe came from here.  What I realized afterward is that in order to make them really look like they're 'puddling' you need to make the cookies very big!  I guess everyone felt so sorry for them because not very many got eaten!  LOL  But we had soooo much food.  Let's just say it's a good thing that we have a middles school party coming up at our house next week because there is a TON of yummy treats left overs!  

Thanks so much for taking time to visit me!  Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
