Todays Verse: And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. Luke 2:16-17
Todays Goal: Spend a little time doing something with someone special in your life, but the thing is today that something is finishing up your decorating! Yep, a little more decorations are always great! Okay, so today with that someone special, you are going to make paper snowflakes, and paper chains, and any of those other little decorations you used to make as a kid, oh, and string popcorn, and then your goal is to decorate a room that you don’t normally bother decorating. When you go in that room after decorating it, you will have a wonderful memory of that special time with that special someone doing something fun. Which room doesn’t normally get decorated for Christmas?
Todays Cookie Recipe:
Graham cracker squares
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup or more chocolate chips
1 cup salted peanuts
Place graham crackers side by side in an ungreased jelly roll pan. In saucepan, combine butter and brown sugar and cook
over medium heat, stirring occasionally until mixture comes to a boil, about 3-5 minutes. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
Immediately pour over graham crackers and spread evenly. Sprinkle with the chocolate chips. Let stand until melted, about
1 minute; then spread around with a knife or spatula. Sprinkle with peanuts and lightly press into chocolate.
Cool and break into pieces.
Something special to do: Since you are now, undoubtably really busy and Christmas is only 11 days away, and you feel like you will never get everything done, you need a break!!! One way to relax, really enjoy the season and get your family time in is to take an evening and make snowman soup, turn the lights down, light candles and turn on the Christmas tree, and then turn on some quiet Christmas music and sit around together and RELAX!!!!
