With Halloween being a huge hit, I'm even more excited for Christmas this year! Read more [...]

Before:   During:   The finished project:   We also decorated the house and we have all of our candy ready to hand out.  I was completely inspired by easy pumpkin rice krispies treats for Halloween (mine is the top row, center in the grid below) and while I had to make a few Read more [...]
