The only thing better than finding ideas on Pinterest is actually trying the ideas you find on Pinterest.
My daughter had a friend over and they put together these Santa hats.
They were really easy.
Just melt some white chocolate and then dip the end of a bugle into the chocolate.
Add the m&m, and you are finished.
These are cooling on waxed paper.
Now, we have bowls of Santa hats and...
...jars of Santa hats.
The sweet with the salty tastes great.

Isn't this just the cutest thing ever???
One of my students and her Mom made a marshmallow reindeer for every student in my class for Christmas.
The kids loved them.
The giant marshmallow was dipped in melted peanut butter chips and then decorated.
The whole thing is on a giant sucker stick.
I have not eaten mine yet.
There is something about the thought of peanut butter and marshmallow that is drawing me in...so I know it will not last much longer.
Cute, cute, cute.

This was the first recipe I shared on my blog three years ago.
It is one of my very favorite and easiest recipes.
I usually make this cake for Christmas Day,
but this year, I have made two cakes for a special dinner I am hosting.
If you have never made one, I highly recommend it. You can find the recipe here.

Christmas, Christmas Time is Here.
Time for Joy and Time for Cheer.
My ninety-nine cent poinsettias have been wrapped and tied with ribbon.
They seem to be all over our house.
I have left most of our decorations in the attic this year.
It seems we enjoy things more if there is not quite so much of it!!!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!!
We have decorated.
Our theme this year seems to be poinsettias.
I have purchased several to decorate for a special even at church.
For now, they are decorating our home.
The tin came from the Lynchburg square, and it is one of my favorite things.
