How was your Thanksgiving weekend?  Ours was filled with family, food and fun.  We were so blessed to have Jeremy's parents in from Arizona this year, so it was even more special for all of us. Once we celebrated Thanksgiving we were all ready to start thinking about the most wonderful time of the year; Christmastime!!  Bring on the holiday music, yummy holiday baking, holiday decorating and holiday traditions

One of the holiday traditions we have started creating with our kids is going to Santa's Workshop at The North Pole in Colorado Springs Colorado.  We were so happy to bring Grandma and Grandpa "from Arizona" to join us.  It was a perfect chilly winter day.  We were bundled up in our snow gear but had a fantastic time.

We did make one stop at Walmart for some holiday essentials and came across a great ibotta offer that had us stocking up with these great holiday favorites.  If you haven't used ibotta yet, it is a must have when trying to save some money this holiday season.  Once we got home we started planning how to decorate the house for Santa!

Once the stockings were hung and the tree decorated perfectly we jumped right into some treats and crafts!  The best part of the holidays - treats and crafts!  Ha!  My kids absolutely agree with me.

I pulled out a craft we saved from last Christmas, color your own mug craft.  It was a hit.  These little artists were busy for over an hour!  They are perfect too, a memory we will have for a long time.

My kids have found a new love of Chocolate and Peanut Butter thanks to their dad so I knew that the first treat of the Christmas season needed to include those ingredients.  I decided to make some Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Cookie Pops.  Yes, they taste as good as they sound, oh and in true Censie fashion - they are super easy too!

 While the kids worked on coloring their hot cocoa mugs I focused on these delicious treats that I plan on making again for Santa in a few weeks...I know he will approve.

These turned out so yummy.  The NILLA Wafers, peanut butter and chocolate are such a great flavor combination.  Plus they look adorable.  Not only do I plan on adding these to our sweet treats to make for Santa but I also think they will be perfect for our Christmas Day celebrations with family.  Yummy!

To complete our Thanksgiving weekend (Christmas kick off weekend) we got the kiddos in their PJs and let them enjoy the cookie pops and Swiss Miss® Hot Cocoa with marshmallows in their newly decorated hot cocoa mugs.

Swiss Miss® is my very favorite hot cocoa to have on hand during the winter because it is indulgent, has a rich chocolate flavor, and is made with REAL milk. While snow wasn't falling, we were certainly feeling in the Christmas spirit in front of the pretty tree.  Don't you just love this time of the year?

  1. Your Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Cookie Pops look great! I love that they're no-bake, and a fun way to include the kids in holiday treat making. They're a great idea for holidays year round too.

    We usually make sugar cookies for Santa, or plain chocolate chip if I'm in a time crunch. (Santa prefers the sugar cookies though ;) ) Christmas cookies are one of my favorite things about the holidays.

  2. We had a wonderful weekend celebrating Thanksgiving. Going to Santa workshop sounds like a blast. Love how your family celebrates making crafts together. The detailed pictures of the pops look easy enough for the whole family to make together.

  4. Yum these are just like tagalongs...my favorite girl scout cookies before I discovered samoas! Unfortunately I have a recently discovered peanut allergy, but I'd totally make these for the kids to scarf down!
