Christmas Goodies.

Yesterday we had our good friends, JR and Chrystal and their 2 girls, Malia and Maddie, over to make sweet treats for our neighbors, babysitters and co-workers.  Chrystal and I had decided on 5 different recipes:

1. Holiday Chex Mix

2. White chocolate/peanut butter bark

3. Christmas Wreaths

4. Sugar blossom cookies

5. Magic cookie bars

I grabbed a few pics of our ingredients before we got started.

We thought it would be fun to put Malia and Jensen in their aprons and have them help us!  That lasted for a couple recipes and then they were both ready to go and play!

Lynette came over and helped us assemble some of the treats and also helped me by putting together my chex mix holiday jars.  Thanks Nettie!!  I didn’t get as many pictures of the process as I would have liked, but I think this is the way to do it!  With the 3 of us working together we got everything done in about 2 hours.  Not bad!  I think the finished products look great!

Chrystal and I thought it would be fun to start an ornament exchange with all of our kids instead of buying toys.  The kids were so excited with their ornaments and I hope we can continue this tradition for many years to come!  A fun and exhausting time was had by all and now we are ready to spread some Christmas cheer to our friends!!
