Game and Instructions


Welcome back to year six of our Festive Christmas Event where we team up with a bunch of talented blogging friends to bring you a plethora of creative ways to celebrate your holiday season. We will also be baking some cookie recipes for you, sharing some party games, making some handmade gifts, doing some ornament crafting and sharing our Christmas movie family fun ideas. There will be breakfast recipes and as always our decorated Christmas Trees which is always a fun tour of homes.

New this year are Gift Guides. We are right there with you shopping from home due to Covid 19 and we understand how hard that can be. So, we have been busy little Elves doing tons of research to create fabulous Gift Guides to help you with your holiday shopping. You can see my ideas for kitchen gifts here and teen gift ideas here.

Witches Brew Party Treat

Can you believe that Halloween is just two and a half weeks away? It’s time to start thinking about costumes, food, and parties. I love, love, love this time of year simply for the time with friends and family and the fun we all have. To get my Halloween started I joined with a bunch of other bloggers for the annual Halloween Popcorn Box Party 2017 created by Laura Kelly and submitted my Witches Brew Party Treat idea.
We were sent a cute package of goodies, including a paper popcorn box. Our job is to design something for Halloween using this box and any other supplies we wanted to use. Be sure to check out all the other ideas below and enter the giveaway!

Our Crazy Fun Halloween Party

Some times I wonder about us! We decided a few weeks ago to throw a big Halloween party and then the work and planning started. It’s hard! Parties like these are not easy to throw! But, in the end we had the best time gathering all our friends and family together for a fun time! It was so worth the time and energy, and even a 3 hour rain storm. Join us as we give you a tour of what we did and hopefully this will give you some ideas for any activities you are planning.

Jessica has the perfect house to throw a spooky soiree with all the trees, falling leaves, and creepy dark corners. As you drove up to her home this is what you saw.
