Funtastic Friday #413

 We love the Christmas season!

Do you have the tradition of Christmas crackers
during the holidays?
We had some at Thanksgiving
which was fun for our big crowd!
Someone even got 2 crowns in their cracker,
so we gave him a prize. 
Claire gives you the instructions and joke papers
to make your own crackers.

Another tradition we have is making gingerbread houses.
I loved the year we used Pop-Tarts for our houses.
You can find the recipe {here}
plus all the instructions and printables to make a
gingerbread house kit to drop off to friends 
or have ready for an activity.

Looking for all your Christmas inspiration at today's party!
Let's get to it!

 Many things to be thankful for,

Funtastic Friday #409

 I teach a seminary class of teenagers in the Old Testament 4 mornings a week.

In November, I always like to focus on gratitude. 

Did you know that expressing gratitude can make you happier? 

check out this cute video about it on You Tube:

 An Experiment in Gratitude | The Science of Happiness - YouTube

On November 1,

 I have the kids write down one thing they are thankful for each day on a paper leaf

 and we hang it on our gratitude tree. 

It's fun to see the tree grow throughout the month.

At the end, I type out each item written

 and give it to the kids to remember all their blessings. 

Carrie has a similar family activity {here}

You could make some of Lois' cute pumpkin cheesecakes in jars 
to kick off your family gratitude project!
Love those layers. These look delish!

It's time to get to this week's party.
Let's go!

Funtastic Friday #406

 Got to drive through Vermont last weekend...

the landscape was amazing! 

I don't know if the pictures can even do it justice.
 Rolling hills covered in gold, reds and orange.

Covered bridges, warm cider, apple cider donuts, maple hard candy, pumpkins and mums, maple syrup tasting--all the Fall vibes!

Hope you can get out in some Fall leaves near your home. 
We're on a Fall break right now
and it's the perfect time for some baking with the kids.

Raquel shares her recipe for monster cookies.
The kids will love dying the dough and adding in those eyeballs!

Mix up a few bats with your monsters! 
Chocolate lovers need to bake up some of our
Another fun cookies for the kids to add on the wings and eyes!

Let's get right to this week's party!

Funtastic Friday #405

 It finally feels like Fall!

I can't wait for all the pumpkin and apple recipes to be made as the weather cools.


I'm printing off Crystal's apple butter recipe to give it a try.
And she makes it in her Instant Pot--nice!
It sounds so good on a homemade loaf of bread... 

like Kristin's Challah bread
Toast some up with the apple butter, yum!

Let's get to this week's Funtastic Friday!

bushel basket pumpkin.

Buy some mini bushels and have the kid make some!

More pumpkin ideas:
Take some mini pumpkins and paint them in neutral colors
for a table arrangement.

Funtastic Friday#403

 Welcome to another fantastic week at 

Funtastic Friday!

It's time to get that Fall porch set up.
Nicole has an easy DIY for stacked pumpkins
and displaying cabbage in a bushel basket.
We love ornamental cabbage as part of your front door planters
or Fall groupings. 
Added bonus with her decor is that it's low maintenance,
since everything is artificial!

We're starting to think about Halloween crafts/decor
and always keeping an eye out for your recipes and everything Fall!

Funtastic Friday #402

Changing over to Fall decor,

you might want to add in a new piece of furniture.

Even better, just renovate an existing piece you already have at home!

Angela DIY'd this cool dresser.

Loving the black with natural wood accented drawers.

What projects are you working on?

Let's check out all your DIY and Fall ideas on this week's link party!
