Good morning all.

Yes, I saw Dagmar's fabulous Snowman card just a minute ago and commented.

Kandie, who needs televison. That was one big drama. Poor guy(S)......

We got a fresh tree yesterday! Put lights on it last night. Still have to decorate it.

Jayne, great to hear from you!

As Jayne would say, happy day to you all!

What a night you had Kandie! I hope someone helps that young man. His dad sounds like a lunatic. Scary for you and DH.

Dagmar's snowman card is so cool Melody!

Dagmar, I hope you feel better quickly. The holidays is no time to be ill. Hugs!

Sharon, sounds like your busy right up to the last minute! Wow! I sent out my last cards yesterday. Whew!

Kathy, that was a strange dream but I'm glad it didn't get you upset. Sometimes I wake up from dreams like that where I can feel my heart pumping like crazy.

Jayne, it sounds like you've got lovely Christmas plans. We are going to Phoenix to visit my DD Monday and Tuesday. Then, coming home Christmas day and will probably Facetime or Skype with the grandkids back in Wisconsin. A pretty low key Christmas.

Have a great Sunday everyone!

Good wet, windy morning! My poor DH, he is getting more things to fix around here. I think he'll be changing out our water heater and we have to do something different with kitchen lighting too. Of course, with regard to the lighting, just finding a fixture that works with the current light in the kitchen would be easiest but I'm over here saying, "I want different lighting in there!" And he is groaning!

DD1 stayed home from work today because she has a sore throat. There is a going away party for her best friend's family this afternoon. Sadly for DD1, they are moving to North Carolina.

Goodness, Kandie, what a night you and your DH had. So sad for that young man, will add him to my prayers.

Sorry you are fighting a cold, Dagmar. Sounds like you are doing everything to give it the boot. Apple bread sounds delicious!

That is quite the dream, Kathy, I'm glad it didn't upset you.

How fun to have a real tree, Shirl.

Hmm, DH is in the kitchen measuring and sighing so I'm distracted on what I want to type!

Any kitchen lighting suggestions?

Afternoon everyone!!

Had fun with the grandkids, BUT they were sick!! Both coughing like crazy and sneezing all over the house! It will be a miracle if we do not get sick!

I made snow globes with them! Another BUT they leaked!!! I even had the special glue to seal them! Nope did not work!

So I took the glue and sealed it from the outside all around the jar lid then added glitter glue to make it look nice! Told the kids to let it dry now for 24 hours to see if they will leak!

I guess the parents are not real excited about having the jars in the house that might leak!

The kids are disappointed and so am I about the jars not sealing right even though they are jars made for snow globes!

So the kids and I ordered new special water tight jars and after Christmas will redo the snow globes! LOL!

Kandie, wow that sounded bad with the young man! And so weird with the 911 operator!

Everyone sounds like they are so busy! Me too have to get my self moving today!

I made a big decision! Going to enjoy the holiday and take a break from card making! Don't fall over everyone! No making cards for me till after January 1! Going to take all my strength this coming weekend with the three girls!!

Off to start cleaning, tomorrow it's food prep!

I have done nothing today. We went out for lunch. I need to get at least one batch of cookies made today. Doing them in bar form - so much easier. We are going to DD's new apartment for Christmas eve and my sister's for Christmas. I do have a couple more gifts to wrap. Nothing like waiting until the last minute.

Ok,I made the peanut butter marshmallow fudge, and am I ever glad I read the reviews. For a Kraft Heinz recipe, it left a lot out. Thankfully, several reviewers posted what they did and I did mine the same way.

So many reviewers said their fudge didn’t set up. The secret, apparently to those who make candy, was to use a candy thermometer to bring the first three ingredients up to 234 degrees and a nice thick mix of sugar, butter and condensed milk. THEN add the marshmallows, peanut butter chips, and vanilla. So, I have edited the following recipe accordingly. Results, smooth creamy fudge without the overpowering sweetness.

Creamy Marshmallow-Peanut Butter Fudge


2 Hr(s) 25 Min(s)
25 Min(s) Prep
2 Hr(s) Cook

Make this super easy Creamy Marshmallow-Peanut Butter Fudge. Simply mix together a few delicious ingredients, and then let the fudge firm up in the fridge.

What You Need

1-1/2 cups sugar

3/4 cup butter or margarine

1 can (5 oz.) evaporated milk (about 2/3 cup)

1 pkg. (10 oz.) JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows

2 pkg. (10 oz. each) peanut butter chips

1/2 tsp. vanilla

Candy thermometer

1 cup PLANTERS COCKTAIL Peanuts, coarsest chopped, if desired

Let's Make It

Line 13x9-inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides; spray with cooking spray.

Bring sugar, butter, and evaporated milk to boil in large saucepan on medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook until a candy thermometer reads 234 degrees.

Stir in marshmallows, peanut butter chips and vanilla; cook and stir 2 to 3 min. or until chips are completely melted and mixture is well blended. Pour into prepared pan; spread to evenly cover bottom of pan. Sprinkle with nuts; press lightly into fudge with back of spoon.

Refrigerate several hours or until firm. Use foil handles to remove fudge from pan before cutting to serve.

So I got my craft on today.

Cute card Kathy. I had to do some work for DH. Now I'm relaxing and reading a book a friend gave me, Lost Light by Michael Connelly. I've been so busy lately that I'm enjoying doing nothing.

Kandie, a piece of fudge would be nice while I'm reading! Lol

Got out for a walk today. Have not done that as we have had so much rain all week long. I have not had any energy, but took a B12 and went to IHOP for brunch. Felt a little more into getting a few groceries and now we have done the tree. Did not put on all the stuff we have. Need to edit it, but probably never will, lol. It all just went back in the closet for another time.

Melody, you have the best ideas. Making bar cookies! And you are not alone about waiting till the last minute. Same here!

Ann, I hope you just enjoy the holidays and don't succumb to making anything. Ha, ha! If you peek at challenges you might be enticed!

Kathy, your crafting on, looks cool!

For some reason have never been into fudge, but thanks Kandie for taking the time to post it. I am sure it is quite yummy! Maybe I should gives this some more mulling on, lol......

Catherine, Wesley is so adorable.....Swooning over him!

I am done for the day too. I was not all that motivated to decorate that tree. But we do like it this year!

Going to sit and relax now!

Have a great evening everyone!

Very impressive Ann! 4 days and no cards! LOL

Hopefully my Christmas cards will arrive by Christmas Eve. At least I tried. VSN really helped and it was fun too! Shirl you can get that snowman done!

Have a good evening all!

Gracie, I love to get cards, no matter when! No worries. You did try and you succeeded! Thanks for the encouragement on the snowman. I am tired right now. Will see what tomorrow brings!

I want to bake, and I want to get a walk in again like we enjoyed today.

Default Hello

No challenges for me all week last week Ann...LOL I was too busy!

We had my family Christmas gathering yesterday, and first without both parents..... We had everyone but one brother (#1) and a few of the nieces and nephews....none of my kids were there.. Food was awesome. For gifts, we did White Elephant, and many were very funny, fun was had by all!!! Two elders there...

I am off to Ohare to pick up DD2 tomorrow. We will do Christmas Eve here, dinner and Midnight mass, and Christmas day in Chicago where DD1 lives. My two daughters will leave 12/26 to drive to Colorado, and Hubby and I are flying on 12/27.

We spent the day at my sisters home, she had the Christmas party yesterday, and one brother ( #4, from Texas) and his wife and 4 kids here, we went to the festival of lights at the zoo tonight. Over 2 hours in traffic....... and it is about 20 minutes from their home...... It was great, was a fabulous day! We all met for lunch at Portillo's- brother #3 from Mass. joined us there with his son and we had a great visit. My brother #3 went to the Bears game tonight- paid an arm and a leg for great tickets to watch the Bears get destroyed!

It was nicer here than it was on Halloween! LOL Almost 50 midday.....!

Kandie- what a terrible and scary scene at your home. Hope all turns ouyt OK!

Kathy- I am never up at 3AM, unless I have to go to the bathroom, which is rare!

Ann- best of luck taking it easy with no challenges all week!

Dagmar- feel better!

Shirl- I aim at 10,000 steps a day- otherswise the back and the fibromyalgia take over! I feel pretty Ok when I can stay active!

Catherine- sweet Wesley! Thanks for the card that came in the mail yesterday0 just openerd today!

I am working on mailing out cards- about 2/3 done! I have a huge bag of cards- probably 150 to take to the USO at Ohare when I pick up my daughter at Ohare tomorrow!

Waving hello to all!!! And hope everyone is ready for the Holiday!

Shelly

Waving back from the Midwest, Shelly! 10,000 steps a day? You go, girl!!! I’m working on my steps as well but I am nowhere near that number! What wonderful gatherings you enjoyed! . .

Kathy, stop it with those early morning funny videos before I snort coffee, lol. I loved the parrot’s “leave a message after the SQUAWK”!!! Whoever does voice-overs is really talented!

Four days and counting, Ann? Good for you. But we all know that once you start making cards again, you’ll do about 15 a day till you catch up, lol.

Regarding that young man I mentioned earlier, I think the second police officer picked up the father and brought him here, so I don’t know if he was telling the truth about his windshield or not.

Today I dip more pretzel rods into milk chocolate this time instead of the white chocolate from the weekend, and pour on colored sprinkles, and then I’m done. DH will make three pineapple upside down cakes. And remember I mentioned he was going to make meatballs in case someone stops by Christmas Eve? He came home with the ingredients for both bbq and Swedish meatballs, two trays of shrimp, and all kinds of cheeses. I am a bit confused, since I thought the reason we weren’t having Christmas here this year was so we didn’t have to go through all the food preparation? That’s my hubby, lol.

Morning!!

Wow, Shelly you have had so many get togethers already!! Great to see family though! Hope you took lots of photos!

Kandie, wow, I am coming to your house for food!!

My 24 lb turkey is in the oven! Will cut it all up today and place in a crock pot for tomorrow! Kids are coming early tomorrow to open gifts then the rest of the family comes at 4:00 P.M.!

I am making meatballs, turkey, tenderloin tips and a veggie pizza for Christmas Eve!

Roasted duck for Christmas Day! Yes both days everyone will come here. Christmas Day not as many.

Gracie, I looked at the mail delivery notice and your card is there to be delivered today!

Got the notice for the sketch challenge and bravely said NOPE will not do it! Too much to do today!

Later ladies, have a wonderful day!
PS - Kathy loved those pets singing!

Good morning everyone! It looks damp outside but rain isn't falling from the sky and the wind, thank goodness, has settled down. I didn't get ANYTHING done yesterday that I needed to accomplish. Spent a considerable amount of time discussing kitchen lighting with DH and DD1. In the afternoon/evening we had a farewell party to attend for the family of DD1's best friend who are moving this week, after Christmas, to South Carolina. DD1 is very sad about that. I hadn't thought about it a lot, but DH and the dad get into some deep, off the wall discussions and I think both guys are going to miss that too.

Color me skeptical, Ann, about you not making any cards. However, when I read the list of all you are cooking for the two days, perhaps you'll not have ANY time to craft! That is a lot of cooking!

Sounds like you've had a lot of wonderful family gatherings already, Shelly! That is fabulous.

Well, I'm running late for work. Waving hello to everyone as I run out the door!

Hello everyone! I'm getting ready to go to DD's home in Phoenix.

Wow, Ann, that's a lot of food preparation...you sure wouldn't have time to make cards! Sounds like a fun and exciting couple of days!

Kathy, those videos are great! Love the voice overs.

Kandie, your DH sounds like mine. He'll make all those appetizers and then eat them watching football games! LOL

Shelly, wow, sounds like some fun and busy holidays for you too! Enjoy!

Catherine, sorry about both daughters' best friends moving away! Sheesh! Don't work too hard today!

Shirl, way to go getting 10,000 steps in. I wonder how many we do when walking the dogs.

Hi Melody, Jayne, Sharon, Sis, Sally, Dagmar and anyone else I've missed!

Merry Christmas to everyone...and hope you all have a wonderful holiday with friends and family!

Ha, I do not think we do 10,000 steps a day, but I do know of the concept, lol.

Doing laundry, making soup and then bake.

Good morning and afternoon to all of you!

Kathy's idea of a break....shoes off, jammies on and a big long nap.

Ann's idea of a break....only baking 20 cakes instead of 30!

LOL
