I just saw this great idea for a Bird Feeder.
You will need: Bagel, peanut butter, birdseed and twine or ribbon.
1.Tie a piece of twine around a bagel.
2. Coat the bagel with peanut butter and roll it in bird seed.
3. Hang the bagel outside and watch the birds.
I can not wait to try this idea.

I have about 25 Christmas and winter books. We wrap each one and place it under our craft Christmas tree ( that is our tree that we hang only kid-made ornaments, do not worry our other tree also has plenty of kid-made ornaments too).
Each night we pull one of kid's names out of a bowl and they get to unwrap the book and read it. They love pulling the names and unwrapping the book. And this year the older kids have said they wanted to read the books (well at least Caity did, but I am going to make the other 2 as well).
The girls wrapped the books this year. It is also a good way to teach the kids to wrap.
Don't you love the soldier cyclopes gingerbread man ?

Caity and Cody helped peel the pototoes. I love when the kids help.
Here are my happy kids.
My family waiting to eat. "WAIT " I have to take a picture first.
This is one of our favorite holiday recipes. My kids ask for this on every holiday. My BFF Beth gave it to me.

Oh My Goodness, this is a wonderful tasting dessert. Even if it was not so super easy to make, I would still love it. This is so easy the kids can make it !!!!!!! And only 3 ingredients.
-Pumpkin pie mix (different than canned pumpkin, it has all the pumpkin spices all ready in it. I bought it at Wal-mart)
