Family Time!

Today SD and I decided to stay at home and spend Family time together baking! We made sugar cookies and decorated them! WE had a blast!! We love having her here...She is staying half of Christmas break with us!! Tomorrow morning is Christmas at our house (she goes home just for Christmas morning and then we get her back til Sunday!) So as soon as I get done making this blog I must go finish my Santa duties!! I love Christmas :) Here are a few pics from day of Family time!

SD decorating her cookies!! She is soo creative
So proud of our creations!

Now I love these kinda of stockings!!

The final product- notice the gingerbread at the very top without a head!! Oops! :)

We also made our favorite finger food to take to Christmas lunch tomorrow at Hubby's mom's. They are Chicken/bacon wraps - Ill list the recipe below!! They are so tasty and easy to make!! Try it! :)


One pack of the chicken tenderlions thawed (you can use the regular breast they are just harder to cut into little pieces), a pack of bacon, brown sugar, chili powder and toothpicks

How to:

Cut the chicken into small pieces (if using the tenderlions you can usually get 4 pieces out of each one )

Cut all the bacon in half

Wrap a half piece of uncooked bacon around a small piece of uncooked chicken. (hold it together with a toothpick)

* Mix together a 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 1 teaspooon (u can a add 1/2 to this if you want a little more flavor -I do this!) of chili powder in a small bowl.

Roll your wrapped chicken in the mixture till it is coated!

Place on a broiler pan (you can use a cookie sheet- the broiler pan is just easier for clean up!)

Broil on high for about 7-10 minutes or until done!!


** If you try the recipe let me know what you think!!!

Merry Christmas!!
