Funtastic Friday #257

It's cookie season!
What are your favorites? Do you have traditional holiday cookies you bake?
I have to say my ultimate favorite cookie is good ol' chocolate chip, 
but during the holiday season we have to make peanut blossoms and sugar cookies.
We seem to always make Swedish Rossettes for school--
sharing a cookie from your heritage.
As a kid, I always loved the coconut wreaths my mom would make, 
but I've never been able to duplicate those cookies as good as she made them.
I'm always up for trying out a new cookies variety.
Especially a soft cookie.
 Jenny has a soft ginger cookie that's a must to try.

Soft Ginger Cookies Recipe - Perfect for Christmas baking! on Mommy Evolution
My good friend just had her annual cookie exchange.
I love getting 12 varieties of cookies.
They sure come in handy for a crowd, when you have a party and need a quick treat to bring
 and just to please the kids at home.
At the cookie exchange,
I always bring my White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies.


You will love these!

Let's get the link party started!
This week on Funtastic Friday....

Funtastic Friday #256

Hope you've got your stretchy pants on
and are relaxing in front of a ball game or Hallmark movie right about now.
We'll be hitting some shops on Black Friday
(not the same as it used to be but still fun)
and going out to a movie.
On Saturday it's time to put up Christmas! 

Three embroidery hoop Christmas ornaments on white wood.

For years we have hosted a girls Christmas Craft party.
The girls make ornaments or little crafts to decorate their home.
We play games, have appetizers 
and drink our "famous" Snowy Pink Punch.


I'm always on the hunt for a new craft or ornament for the girls to make.
Pamela embroidery hoop ornaments would be a great craft for the girls to make.


You can find all our kid craft party ideas {here}
along with links to kid friendly ornaments. 

Time for this week's Funtastic Friday!

What happened to November?
Thanksgiving is right around the corner. 
I'm so excited this year to have my kids and father-in-law come in town.

We're starting to make a list of
places we want to go and things to do.
Plus all the good food we want to eat!

Fantastic Friday #254

I'm always looking for some kind of appetizer or snack
to tide us over until a late afternoon Thanksgiving dinner.

Cranberry Cheese Ball Recipe | a savory and sweet cheese ball that is perfect for the holidays!
A good cheese ball is just the thing!
Ashley rolled hers in dried cranberries,
a great idea for Thanksgiving and for those with nut allergies.


Our mom's recipe for Pineapple Cheese Ball 
is kind of famous around these parts--a crowd pleaser at our annual 
girl's craft party {here} and {here}

Looking forward to all your recipes, décor and ideas for Thanksgiving and Christmas
so, let's get this party started!

Funtastic Friday #253

We're on the count down to Thanksgiving now.
This year we have relatives coming in town,
so our planning and prepping has begun!

Chocolate Candy Corn Pretzel Bites
Starting to think of the menu
and you always need a few snacks to tide you over until the "big meal"
Jennifer has a fun twist on these chocolate pretzel bites.
Love the little candy corn on top.
Add a caramel flavored candy corn-yummo!


Add some of our acorn chocolates to your snack platter too.
I love party snacks like this--they're great recipes for kids to prep.
Keeps them busy and helps you out too.

Are you already putting up Christmas or do you wait until Thanksgiving?
I still have to wait until the day after Thanksgiving to start pulling out Christmas,
but that doesn't mean I haven't been collecting ideas and new items for the season ;)
Let's get to this weekend's party!
