Sewing, Homeschooling and Craziness

~*~ Merry Christmas ~*~



Merry Christmas 1



Here is what Christmas Eve and Christmas Day looked like at our house. It was a little subdued this year. We are all missing Jacob like crazy and maybe a move right around the holiday season wasn’t the best idea in the world… LOL



Merry Christmas 2


We made coffee filter snowflakes with teal glitter for a special friend of ours.

Then we played with homemade air dry clay with added cinnamon.

I found the recipe, minus the cinnamon, here – Baking Soda Clay. It works really well and to give it an added holiday feel I just added about 2 tablespoons of cinnamon. The kids loved it and the house smelled great! πŸ˜‰

Then we made peanut butter blossoms! YUMMY!!


1 cup of peanut butter

1 cup of white sugar

1 egg

Mix all ingredients together

Roll dough into 1 1/2 inch balls

Place on non-greased cookie sheet

350 oven for 7 mins

Pull out oven and immediately add a Hershey’s Kiss right in the middle. (The kids love that part.)

Makes about 2 dozen




Then it was Christmas morning!

  1. Great things going on in your house! Does the clay still smell like cinnamon after it’s baked? I remember getting an ornament for the tree from a student that was made out of something like that a few years back. It smelled wonderful. Then my son, who was two at the time, tried to eat it. Luckily there wasn’t anything harmful in it! πŸ˜‰

  2. Looks like alot of fun at your house.. So sorry you didn’t have Jacob with you.. Know that was really hard..But I am shouting that he will be home this weekend.. How long will he get to stay?
    Sending hugs.

  3. […] Peanut Butter Blossoms – the recipe I posted the other day […]
