homemade CHRISTMAS

This is what I bought for my mom and dad. I put 2 ultrasound photos of Montgomery in each coffee mug, and filled with instant coffee...

This is an idea I found at kilwin's over the 4th of July. They were crazy priced, so I ordered Michigan cookie cutters from Manistee Variety Store, and found a fudge recipe I love:

1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter chips
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla

Step 1:Place each of six 3x1/2-inch mitten-shaped cookie cutters, or other cookie cutters in a simple shape, on 5-inch square of foil. Seal foil tightly around outside of each cookie cutter. Place on cookie sheet. Lightly spray cookie cutters with cooking spray.

Step 2: In 4-cup microwavable measuring cup, mix chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, milk and butter. Microwave uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until chips are almost melted. Stir in vanilla.

Step 3: Pour mixture into cookie cutter molds, filling to tops of molds. Refrigerate uncovered about 2 hours or until firm. Decorate with icing and candies if you wish.

Step 4: Carefully remove foil. I then put into baggies and use colored ribbon.

Thanks to pinterest, I found this awesome Santa hat party mix.

Dirk was awesome and helped make all 40 Santa hats out of bugles.

Also from pinterest, but they made ornaments,
