Christmas is almost here ya’ll! This year we are throwing a Christmas party for our family and friends and I wanted to make a fun drink to serve at the party. I asked my daughter what we should serve and she said she wanted something “green because that is the best Christmas color” Ha! So I thought what would be more fun than a Grinch Punch!? How the Grinch Stole Christmas is my daughters favorite Christmas movie so we had fun making this easy Christmas Drink Recipe that I’m sure our friends and family will love. Would you like to see how easy it is to make? Continue reading
The holidays will be here before you know it! I don’t know about you, but my daughter is already adding requests to her Christmas list and it was hard to keep up with so I made a Christmas Gift List For Kids Printable so I would be able to keep up with what she wanted when it was time to go shopping. (Black Friday anyone?) We keep her list on our fridge so that way when she thinks of something she wants she can add it to her list, but she has to be picky because there are only 10 open slots for wishes. So I wanted to share with you the list I made, feel free to print it off and use it for your kids too!
Christmas Painted Pretzels are a fun and easy snack (or homemade gift!) for the holiday season! My little girl and I made these to bring in for her class Christmas Party this week, and the kids loved them! It’s the perfect balance between salty and sweet. Your kids will love to help because they get to “paint” chocolate onto the pretzel, fun right!? It’s a simple process, and you can change them for each holiday simply by changing the sprinkles!

If you’re like me, Cyber Monday and free shipping help me keep my sanity during the holiday hustle at retail shops. The thought of battling the masses is mind numbing, especially when you can stay at home, have items shipped to your door and still save money! Saving and sanity, sounds too good to be true, right? Well, I recently learned that if I’d have kept that humbug attitude, I would’ve missed out some great savings and some free relaxation! Turns out my trip to Walmart was worth it in more ways than one!
First things first, when I shop at a retail store I’m efficient and frugal. To me, buying in bulk saves me from unneeded trips to the store and helps keep a little holiday jingle in my pocket. Not to mention, preparing for the influx of family makes buying in bulk a necessity! So, I ventured out to tackle my shopping needs when what to my wondering eyes should appear but an awesome opportunity to save money, buy in bulk and be rewarded with some free, relaxing entertainment!
I got my A&W®, 7UP®, Canada Dry®, Sunkist®, Sun Drop®, RC Cola®, Squirt® at my local Walmart for only $1.00! Buying in bulk and saving money, yep, can check that off the list! But wait, there’s more! By buying in bulk and purchasing at least (10) 2- liters or (5) 0.5L 6packs, I received a $5 movie credit at VUDU. This VUDU offer was so simple, just take a picture of your receipt with the qualifying purchases, create an account at VUDU by going here and submit the photo for a $5 credit! Easy peasy!
Then again, it wouldn’t be the season if there wasn’t some Grinchy intervention. It seems inevitable that my shopping list always excludes the one pertinent ingredient for my favorite cupcakes. This is the way to save the day. Did you know the A&W® Root Beer can save the day and create a fantastic treat for you and yours this holiday season? All that you need to do is pour your cake mix in a bowl and pour in the 1 1/2 cups of A&W® Root Beer. I suggest combining the ingredients until well blended. Then add them into a lined cupcake tin and bake according to the directions of your cake mix package.
1 1/2 cup of A&W root beer
1 box of your favorite cake mix
If you want to make your cupcakes a little more festive you will need:
Red Can Pieces
Eye candy or white icing and black icing
1) Ice your cupcakes
2) Apply the circular wafer near the bottom of the cupcake
3) Use a dab of icing to secure the red candy to the circular wafer (As a nose)
4) Place the pretzels on the iced cupcake at the top one on each side
5) Finalize the cupcake with the eyes
Voila! Festive cupcake for a great treat!
This holiday season leave the gray hair and the hustle to the jolly old elf himself. Head to your local Walmart and stock up on A&W®, 7UP®, Canada Dry®, Sunkist®, SUN DROP® , RC Cola® and Squirt®, make some creative treats and cherish the spirit of the season by bundling up by the fireplace with those you hold dear for a relaxing movie! Merry Christmas to all!

Do your children participate in a Christmas play or pageant at their church or school? Do they sing? Dance? Play an instrument? Or have a speaking role? My boys have participated in the annual Christmas Pageant at church for the past few years. Although it is a hectic evening it is so special and the memories created will be treasured forever. Every year one of the families participating in the Christmas Eve Pageant hosts a get together afterwards. It is a great time to relax and bask in the glow of another heart warming presentation. It is also a good time to share a chuckle or two about any mishaps that may have taken place. This year I am hosting for the first time and I want to make a special treat for all the hardworking children and directors. Since it is OREO Cookie Balls season I decided to try my hand at these delicious treats with a little twist by creating an OREO Cookie Balls Christmas Tree.
