Coffee Creamer Emergency!

20140303-102824.jpg

OK so this isn’t exactly something I did with the kiddos but it is something I did because I need my energy to be a good mom to the kiddos.

I ran out of coffee creamer yesterday – which is tantamount to the end of the world for me. I need my coffee. Coffee is what keeps me standing and moving… nevermind smiling and thinking. Without coffee, those things are just not a part of my day.

So I was desperate. And desperate times call for desperate measures.

So I logged into google and found a recipe for homemade coffee creamer and thank goodness it was simple, otherwise I wouldn’t be here – writing this post. I would be searching our cabinets for those chocolate-covered coffee beans I stuffed back behind something over a year ago after deciding it was time for a diet.

HERE is the fantastic website where I found my recipe. Full marks for making the post funny but really I’m just grateful it was easy to read for someone whose brain was not yet on.

Whew. What an adventure.

It’s definitely Monday!

It’s Almost Christmas! We need Chocolate!

How many of you have made these with your kids?

Fun aren’t they? White Dipped Pretzels

And of course we never eat them as we make them…

We do occasionally go ahead and dip the broken or wonky pretzels because we know we’ll eat those. I just don’t have any pictures. (not because they go so fast…because they’re not pretty for pictures – yeah, that’s it)

The most important thing is the fun. The kids can make a mess because the whole table is covered with wax paper and everyone enjoys sneaking a pretzel or two.

It’s a good lesson about God too – if you think about it.

Here you have this funny looking pretzel. It’s brown, it’s bumpy and covered in salt. It has little holes all over where air bubbles have popped.

But when you dip it into the chocolate, it transforms into something pretty, new, smooth and soft. God’s love is like that. White Dipped Pretzel Sticks

It’s amazing!

A great opportunity to share the story with your children.

A “teachable moment” as they say.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

And God Bless you and your family this Holiday season!
