hello Monday

Happy Monday friends!!  I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!!  Today I am recapping the last several days.  Be sure to link up with us today!

Last week I tried making red pepper jelly for the first time, and it was SO easy!!  If you've never had it, it's sweet with a little tiny spice to it.  It's served over cream cheese and then crackers.  I'm sharing the recipe this week.  It would make a great little Christmas gift for friends and neighbors.


The night before Thanksgiving, Brian and his brothers and all the kids go to camp and spend the night.  This was the first time Alyx has gone so I had the night to myself!  My two sister in laws, my mother in law and myself all went to dinner and then shopping.


We had these yummy Christmas drinks some amazing food and then off shopping we went!

Can you believe I didn't get one single picture on Thanksgiving??  We always have Thanksgiving at camp and there is no cell service so my phone stayed in my jacket pocket all day.  And I completely forgot to bring my good camera.  But we had a great day.  Lots of fun and delicious food.
My mother in law kept the girls Thanksgiving night and Brian and I braved the crowds early Friday morning for some black Friday shopping.  I'm so glad we went because I've been looking for a good deal on winter boots for Alyx and I found a pair of Bogs for $55.00!  That's a steal on them!  Later that day Brian  headed back to camp for the night and Alyx and I went and did a little of our own shopping.  With a stop at Starbucks.


We watched Christmas movies that night and then the next morning look who showed up....



She was SO SO excited!!!
Patch left she and Emma new Christmas flannel bed sheets =)


That night was spent watching Christmas movies on Hallmark again...#addicted
and drinking some yummy hot cocoa.


Sunday was a yucky day with a snow.  We have quite a bit of snow right now and we are on track to get a ton more tonight into tomorrow.  


I spent the day in the kitchen baking.


Homemade chicken pot pie, and I made the cookies that Heather posted about a couple of weeks ago.  Be sure to check them out, they are YUMMY!

I hope you all had a great weekend and have a great Monday!  Be sure to link up below.
