Gift from Upline!

Look at this awesome gift I got from my 2nd upline, Tina S, for just being a director!!! I love this purse! It goes great with my leather coat I got from Italy when Lance and I was over there. Just another perk for being a CTMH consultant!!! Love my job!

Holiday memories...

Chasey and I had fun in the kitchen yesterday making some cookies! I know, I know, you are all in shock that I was in the kitchen!!! Don't worry, nothing started on fire and nothing got burnt! We tried a fellow CTMH sister's recipe for Oreo Snowball cookies - very Yummy!!! Thank you Leah M.!!! See pics below of our adventure :)

And yes, they look like big black turds, but oh so yummy, tee hee!!!!!! They still need dipped in white chocolate :)

Here's the recipe if you want to try:
Oreo Snow Balls

1 pkg. Oreo cookies
1 (8oz) pkg. cream cheese (softened)
1 pkg white chocolate chips
1 tablespoon shortening

Crush the entire package of Oreos (use food processor or blender).

Mix the softened cream cheese into the cookie mixture.

Form into 1 inch balls and put them in the freezer to harden a bit.

Melt the white chocolate and shortening in microwave. Remove balls from freezer and place on wax paper. Drizzle the white chocolate over balls or dip them into the white chocolate. Place snow balls on wax paper and refrigerate. Makes approximately 3 dozen.

Enjoy! We are!!!

Weekend warrior!

I got a little creative this weekend and thought I would share... click on the link to see :)
Also got some oddball jobs around the house done. The kids and I finally raked and we painted downstairs. Not finished with the painting, but two walls are primed! Brick is really hard to paint on, especially the old stuff! Conned Tristin's friends into helping paint, don't think they'll be back over for awhile, tee hee!

Gift ideas...

I picked up these little tins at Walgreens (round ones - 3 for $1) and Skagway (lunch boxes $1 each). They were so fun to decorate and make great little gifts for teachers, friends, or those last minute holiday guests :) So get creative, and make it from the heart!

Fa La La La La.......

It's Christmas concert season and we were up bright and early getting Chasey ready for hers. At their school, they do the concert right after school (in the past, kids were not returning for the concert). But that means I have to do her hair in the morning, and hope it lasts all day. She wanted me to put curls in, so we did some. Lots of hairspray :) I love how these photos turned out! Chasey is growing up soooo fast!

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells.....

I just LOVE the holiday season and especially the music! My hubby cringes when we travel to Omaha in November for our annual Christmas juant, I find the all year round Christmas channel immediately! Nothing like a good "Deck the halls" to put you in the Christmas shopping mood, tee hee!
