    My Favorite Christmas Story

    My Favorite Christmas Story is a peek into Christmas at my home with my family and the wonderful story that has come out of it. A story that will now be read every Christmas.

Well, he did not disappoint! I slowly opened the last present of Christmas, curious as to what it was. Inside I found a frame with green construction paper inside. My daughter, son-in-law, grandson, and husband all watched on as I started…

    Not Finished With Christmas Shopping????? We Got Ya Covered!!

    If y’all are like me, you may not be completely done with your Christmas shopping. For some reason the season has gotten away from me.

Now I am someone that has a lot to prepare for here at home and I really do not have time to run out to the crowded malls. So, I figured since I was going to be last minutes gifts and deals online…

    Rocky Road Candy

    Rocky Road Candy is loaded with chocolate, peanut butter, marshmallows, and peanuts. What could be better than that? This recipe has been passed down through the generations of our family. Rocky Road Candy is the thing that all of my grown children beg for me to send to them for Christmas. It really is addictive Ha! This is such a simple recipe it’s hard to believe that it is so rich and delicious. In a large pot add the chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and peanut butter. Make sure you are using real semi-sweet chocolate chips. Those imitation ones may be ok for cookies but not for these. (Let’s face it,…

    The 25 Books Of Christmas

    The 25 Books Of Christmas I am always looking for new, fun ideas for Christmas. This year, my daughter and grandson are in North Carolina so my mind has been working overtime to make this the best Christmas ever. My grandson, Brandon, is going to be 8 in December. He loves cars, trucks, and trains just like most little boys. Something else that he finds joy in books! He and I would get in our jammies after his bath, pop a bowl of popcorn and cuddle up under a blanket in the recliner with a good book. Sometimes I would have to read it more than once (ok, sometimes 3…
