More Christmas Deco and a Recipe

Here's our Christmas tree. The boys have taken great delight in rearranging the bottom ornaments, it looks all askew when the lights aren't on. The kitty has been pretty good. She crawls around underneath, but hasn't attempted climbin it or bothering the ornaments too much. I think our sweet Shrek would have been all into it if he was still with us.

One more Nativity...the boys love to rearrange the figures. The girls did too, they've finally learned to leave them be. It's sweet though, to watch them look at each figure and try to explain to them their meaning.

Our new-ish advent calendar. Bought the wooden tree at the DI for like $3, and bought some cheap $1 store ornaments. Sweet.

I make these every year for Christmas.

Super Easy, Super yummy Peanut Butter Kiss BlossomsHere's what ya' need:

1 can condensed milk
3/4c. peanut butter (I mix a little plain and a little crunchy)
2c. bisquick
1t. vanilla
A bag of Hershey's kisses (I use plain and the ones with the almonds in the middle)

Here's what you do:
Blend together the condensed milk and peanut butter
Add 2 cups Bisquick and 1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix it up real good. Get your hands in there if you have to.
Roll into small balls, then roll the balls in the sugar.
They'll look like this.

Bake at 375* for 5-6 minutes. I usually take them out at five.

Immediately press a kiss into each cookie.
Let 'em cool and transfer to a cooling rack or towel.
Eat and enjoy...

That is really cute the boys like to play with your Nativity, and the tree. I was so scared to put everything up this year, but Owen hasn't touched anything-amazing!:) I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
