That's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown

Merry Christmas Eve!
Are you a busy body today?
Me too...
There are still a few gifts left to wrap, cookies left to bake(my "traditional" Jesus cookies), and clothes that still need ironing. Meanwhile, I am so excited for Santa to come visit my nieces and nephews that I can hardly stand it. I think I am more excited for them than I ever was for myself!

I'm kind of wanting to make these Smore pops that I made last year though. They are so easy & yummy! Trying to be realistic and see if I have time for any of it without being a crazy lady, though.

I think it goes without saying, but in case you're looking to make them and are clueless as to how...
Melt Chocolate (I do mine in a makeshift double boiler) Dip marshmallow in chocolate Roll chocolate dipped marshmallow in crushed graham cracker crumbs Let them dry on a piece of wax paper Once dry, stick a lollipop stick in it & voile- You did it!

It's been 6 months since my sweet Granddaddy passed. I miss him more than I can explain.
Tomorrow is his Birthday & it is going to feel very weird not stopping in to kiss his face, hug his neck & listen to his stories. I really love this man & I miss him oh so much.
Happy Birthday Granddaddy!

Well, my sweet friends...
I am off to accomplish my last few Christmas tasks for the year!
I hope that these next few days are filled with God's love and a warmth that can only be brought on by the ones you love and hold dear.
Remember what it's all about...

Merry Christmas!
Love y'all!

  1. I make those smore pops, too! They are so easy to make and always a hit with whoever I give them out to! Lovely post, it's always important to take in the Christmas season with the knowing of God's amazing love.

    Marry Christmas Lacey!
