Sharing Baby Items = Good For Environment
I wrote an article about this awesome new place I found on my other blog Kidzmodo. It is an amazing place to share baby items and get new by earning Zoints. I think this is an amazing idea and just wanted to share it with all you parents out there! Go check it out and learn more about it.

A Holiday Hoopla
Rhonda from Mimi's Toes has tagged me for a "hoopla", we're not calling it a meme. Here are the instructions:

1. List 12 random things about yourself that has to do with Christmas.

2. Please refer to it as a hoopla and not the dreaded "m" word.

3. You have to specifically tag someone when you're done, no leaving it open.

4. Do it quickly, Lets get as many people tagged as possible.

OK Here I go

1. I love white lights on a tree and a color theme. My tree this is not the case. Hubby loves colored and we have ornaments all over the place.

2. I have 2 pairs of Reindeer socks which I love to wear this time of year.

3. I am obsessed with baking but I don't do it frequently because of the calories. This time of the year is my excuse. I will be having a cookie bake here Saturday!

4. I love Christmas movies. So much so that sometimes I watch them all year round. Elf is one of those on my top list.

5. I would much rather give gifts than receive them. It is much better watching people open presents than opening them in my opinion.

6. Christmas candle scents are my absolute favorite. Christmas Eve, Home for the Holidays, Christmas Cookie.. MY FAVORITES!

7. I keep the photo Christmas cards I receive all year round and they hang in my kitchen. I replace them when I get new ones.

8. There can be enough Christmas Decorations, but I do not yet have enough! :-)

9. I always forget to play Christmas music which I love around the house until a few days before The big day.

10. My birthday is exactly one week after Christmas every year.

11. My husband's birthday is exactly 10 days before Christmas every year.

12. My favorite part of Christmas is doing Christmas things with my family and taking the time to remember the real reason behind Christmas. The birth of Jesus!

Tour Of My Home At The Holidays
Christmas Tour of Homes
Thanks to BooMama we are able to have a Christmas Tour Of Homes. Isn't it a neat way to see real people, bloggity friends and the different ways we decorate as individual families and people. I think so!!! I cant wait to go touring around.
My tree.... It has since been torn apart by my 15 month old, but it's still hanging in there.
My Sister-n-law painted this Santa sleeping with his list for us one year. It is beautiful!
Our stockings hanging
a little tart warmer and my favorite Yankee candle for Christmas time.. Christmas Eve.
The dining room table all pretty! If you would join me the post after this is for some Awesome Holiday Favorite cookies. And join me for a drink. For a Pointsetta that is. One glass of champagne with a touch of cranberry juice. Mmmmm YUMMY!!!!!!
An Angel that my Mother-n-law had someone make for us one year!
Some new towels for my kitchen that I just got this year and as you can see the next few items our tree is made up of many Disney ornaments!

The couch dressed up a little!
Hope you enjoyed my tour.. Next year I will have a much more decorated home. I had to leave some very important things out this year like my hand painted lenox nativity scene. My aunt was a ceramics class owner and she made the set for me for our wedding. She died shortly there after so I want to keep it as safe as possible!

Hope you all have a Very Merry Christmas!!! Thanks for stopping by and see you soon!!

1 c. flour
1/2 c. evaporated milk
1/2 c. water
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg, unbeaten
Mix milk, water, sugar and egg together. Stir slowly into flour then beat with an egg beater. Fry in hot oil at 365 degrees until lightly browned. Grease rosette mold before dipping into batter. Gently shake finished cookies in powdered sugar.

May use deep fat fryer, electric frying pan or heavy pan on the range. May add food coloring and/or flavoring to batter before frying.

For as long as I can remember my mother has been making these incredible light cookies every holiday. She edits the recipe a little. Sometimes she will put honey and sprinkles on top instead of powdered sugar, and sometimes she will add flavoring to the mixture. But every year we could count on these to be sitting in the center of the table way before Christmas had arrived.

I now am going to carry on the tradition. I went to my mother to ask what I needed. I ordered the snowflake shaped irons and the handles. I can not wait to share these delightful cookies with my children in my home. My mother will still be making these cookies and sharing them in her home, but now i can as well!

This recipe has been taken from because my mom; well she does everything from memory!
