"That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:4-5

Busy busy!

Hey there everyone...yes, I am still alive...just busy in the land of homemade gifts!  I can tell that blogging is going to be less frequent for me this month, but I will do my best.  The kids and I are busy making homemade hot cocoa mix, cookie mix in a jar, cranberry chutney, peppermint bark, and fudge...all to give as Christmas gifts.

I'm making this hot cocoa mix.  I've made two batches so far, which equals 16 quart sized jars.  We are putting a decorative top on the jars, and tying a candy cane and a bag of mini marshmallows on top with pretty ribbon.  I will try to get pictures up soon.  The girls are giving them to their piano teacher, horseback riding instructor, gymnastics coach, Sunday school teacher, etc.

I will try to post more in the next couple of days, with more recipes and pictures.  I hope you are all having a wonderful, busy month with friends and family.  We have a family Christmas party coming up, and the girls are practicing for the upcoming Christmas pageant at church.

JESUS is the reason for the season!

  1. Hi stranger. Good job getting a post up in December. I think most of us are running too dry to blog much. I know I am only up and writing today because of my cold keeping me from doing everything else. Mixed blessings these colds are... I can't wait to see pictures of all these delicious gifts you are making. I'm sure they will be wonderful and a blessing to everyone who receives them!
