I live in a house of boys and my oldest three boys could play Minecraft for hours on end.  They are HUGE fans of creating their own worlds and I am amazed at some of the features that Minecraft has and I love watching them use their imaginations to create some really cool stuff!  Their latest creation involves a fireproof house with a fire pit inside and walls lined with fire.

Easy Snowman Cookies

I’m so excited to be day 18 in the Blogger Christmas Advent Project from Chicken Scratch N Sniff.  I’m sharing one of my favorite parts about Christmas: Cookies! And, not just any cookies, but Easy Snowman Cookies.

I can’t imagine having Christmas without making sugar cookies and these easy Snowman Cookies were adorable and delicious!

 Easy Snowman Cookies

For as long as I remember, making sugar cookies has been a Christmas tradition in my family.  My grandma makes the best Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies and it is the only type of sugar cookie that I like.  It is so easy to take a regular sugar cookie and make it into something fun for your kids.  My boys had a lot of fun helping me decorate these Snowman Cookies.

How to Make Snowman Cookies

First you will need to make up a batch of your favorite sugar cookie dough.  Like I said above, my favorite and only choice for sugar cookies is my grandma’s Old Fashioned Sugar cookie recipe.

Roll out the dough and use a cookie cutter to cut into circles.

Bake according to your recipe instructions and let cool completely.

Supplies needed to decorate Snowman cookies

Snowman Cookies ingredients

You will need:

  • White Frosting
  • White sugar sprinkles
  • Orange and Brown chocolate chips.  I had mine from Halloween.
  • LifeSaver gummies
  • Twizzler Pull N’ Peel

To make Snowman Cookies,  frost the cookies and add sugar sprinkles to give the look of snow.  Then add chocolate chips for the eyes, mouth and nose.  Add two Gummi Lifesavers and a string of Pull N Peel Twizzler for earmuffs and you are finished just like that.  My boys had fun helping in the kitchen, even if they only wanted to eat the extra LifeSavers.

These Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies are soft and not too sweet which is something I really love.  I typically do not like sugar cookies with frosting because they always are too sweet, but these are perfect with homemade butter cream frosting.  [Read more…]

Minecraft Snowflakes

You know, I have a confession to make.  I really don’t know all that much about Minecraft.  I know, major boy-mom fail!! But the one thing that I do know is that my boys would play and build on Minecraft 24 hours/day every single day of the week if I let them and a big portion of our conversations revolve around Minecraft.  And I love that Minecraft is a great way for them to use their imaginations and build some pretty amazing things.  When I came across this Minecraft Snowflakes tutorial, I knew that we had to make them!

Petz Beach Review

Petz Beach Game: Boy Approved

Have you started your Holiday shopping yet??  I’m just barely getting started but I’m finding that the number one thing on my boys’ wishlists is video games.   Petz Beach is one of the latest Nintendo 3DS games from Ubisoft and is being released just in time for the holidays and is the perfect gift if your kids love animals and video games as much as mine do. .Petz Beach Review

 

One of my favorite things about my boys is how much fun they have had over the years playing with their stuffed animals.  When my oldest boys were little, they would spend hours playing with their animals, especially their stuffed dogs.  Now they have passed those same animals on to my youngest boys who love to play with them.  And we have quite the collection of critters, especially dogs!

Thankfulness Chain

I think I am one of the few people who still wait until after Thanksgiving to start decorating for Christmas but I just love Thanksgiving too much to let it get passed over.  Maybe it is because I love Fall so much and have missed it since moving to Nevada or maybe I just like that Thanksgiving gives us a time to think about what we already have and show thankfulness without all the hype that a lot of other holidays have.

Black Widow Spider Pancakes

In the past we have made Frankenstein pancakes and Jack-O-Lantern pancakes and they were a big hit with my kids.  So I tried to figure out what I could make that the boys would love and decided that Black Widow Spider pancakes would be about as creepy as it could get.  I am definitely NOT a fan of these critters when I find them out in the yard and every time I put up fake spider webs outside, I worry that we will attract more than just the fake plastic spiders that the webs come with. ;) [Read more…]
