So how's your 'in between' week going so far? 
We've had crazy weather here in Oklahoma! 
And it totally feels like it should be January already!
Anyone else feeling that way?

Hope you Christmas was the merriest!

{Recipe} Pretzel Spoon Snowmen






I love baking, especially Christmas baking! I have for several years made Christmas goodies for neighbors, the mail carrier, garbage collectors, etc.etc.... Even made a tray a few times for my husband to take to work which I really miss doing.  I have a few tried and true treats that I always make...sugar cookies and an oatmeal cookie...either with raisins or cranberries. Then I make a candy type treat.  This year I wanted to use some supplies I had in the cabinet and make a circle pretzel snowman face.  All I needed was the pretzel.  I looked and looked and there was none to be had! What was available was a pretzel spoon!


Looked like the perfect snowman shape to me!!
All I did was dip in white chocolate, added an upside down pumpkin sprinkle for the nose and then used an edible ink pen to make eyes, mouth, and buttons.  Totally cute and easy!! 



Pretzel Spoon Snowmen

Pretzel Spoons
white chocolate
orange sprinkle of some kind
edible ink pen (found at Hobby Lobby)

Follow instructions on package to melt chocolate.  Using a fork drop pretzel in chocolate. Tap to remove excess chocolate and then lay on wax paper. While still wet add orange sprinkle.  Let harden.  Once harden drawn on eyes, mouth, and buttons.
Makes a lot!!

Lil' Hunkie and I had fun making these! And some fun Christmas memories too!

December Photo A Week Challenge

 
 
 
 
December 1?!!
 Where in the world did 2015 go ya'll?!
 
Let's enjoy the last month of the year by focusing on what a fun, memory making time it can be!
 
Here's my 'thankfuls' from November....
 
 
Week 1 :  I'm thankful for November....the month I became a wife and a mom!
Week 2 : not pictured....was a video of my Eagle Scout nephew, Timmy (above) playing taps at the Collinsville Veteran's Day parade....thankful for all Veteran's! And my Eagle Scout!
Week 3 : thankful to have Lil' Hunkie home for a week during Thanksgiving! We celebrated by making turkey cookies!
Week 4 : thankful to be the aunt of an Eagle Scout.  Did you know that only 6% of Boy Scouts achieve the highest rank of Eagle Scout? So, so proud of Timmy's accomplishment! And his Court of Honor celebration was pretty cool!
 
HOW TO PLAY:
Simply take a photo inspired by the  prompt, interpret the prompt how you like. Then share on Instagram with #VGphotoaweek. Please use new photos that you take. Please do not use anyone else's photo...this is about you and your pictures. Or you can create a image for the prompt, but it must be something you create.  Post one or many photos per week!
This is how I'll be breaking the weeks up: 
 
Week 1 : December 1-5
Week 2 : December 6-12
Week 3 : December 13-19
Week 4 : December 20-26
Week 5 : December 27-31
Hope you'll join me!! I promise it's fun!!
Happy December!
