Today is my turn! I hope you are all having fun with the hop!! A big thank you to Stacy from Buttermilk Basin for organizing another great blog hop!!!
As I was thinking about what to post, one of my Sisters has been trying to get a date set for our Annual Falcsick Family Sing a Long Potluck Christmas Party!!! I talked about that on the blog hop a couple years ago. It's the most fun tradition we have. Well.....all except chopping down the Christmas Tree! For years when our kids were small, and even when I was growing up, the family went to a farm to chop the tree down. It was always a great adventure, because we went to a place that was "woods" and not perfectly lined up trees. It had hills, ponds, and wildlife! We haven't gone since the kids have grown, and have just purchased a pre-cut tree. This year, my daughter Kristen wants to go back to the farm and chop one down, because her Fiancé's son has never experienced that! So we don't have our tree yet, or any decorations up either. So I have a few pictures to share of when my kids were little!
This is Kristen, she loved Barbies!
This is Kristopher! He loved Back Hoes!! Haha! And Godzilla!!
Whew, that was a lot of fun!
My kids always got up between 4:00 or 5:00 in the morning for opening presents, so we always needed a nap!! Haha!
Here is one of my favorite recipes!!
They are so easy to make, and very yummy!
You can cheat and buy a peanut butter cookie mix, if you are in a hurry!
First roll into balls, and put into a mini muffin tin!
As soon as they are baked, squish a peanut butter cup in the centers! These are the tiniest peanut butter cups, I really like the next size up, that you have to unwrap, but my Son got them for me, so I used them! They sort of look like penny circles! Haha!
Let them cool a bit, then pop them out with a knife, and cool the rest of the way on racks!
Yummy!!! My honey took a bunch to work this morning for his milk and cookie break at 9:30! I don't know how he stays so slim!
Here is your free ornament!!
And I'm having issues getting the pattern on here, so if it doesn't show up, Stacy will help me!!! She is awesome!!! Sorry for keeping you up late Stacy!!! I owe you!
Try this link for the pattern!
The blue circle is 3 3/4" dia. And after you stitch it, lay it on a dark wool, whipstitch, and then use sharp scissors to free hand cut the zig zags!
Have a wonderful Christmas everyone, and tomorrow go check out Ali Strebels blog!!!!!
Just in case the picture above didn't show up, here it is again!
