Happy Saturday + Neighbor Gift ideas.

Anyone else feel like they've been running around all week like a chicken with their head cut off?


I'm gonna be real honest and say that I already can't wait til the day after Christmas - - when I can sit on the couch and veg all day and watch The Crown

Just wanted to give you a few more ideas for some quick and easy neighbor gift ideas.  Can you even believe just 9 more days???


These are great for homemade fudge OR hot fudge sauce!

Because seriously...Santa doesn't like germs on his cookies.

Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe.

As promised - - I'm sharing my sister's yummy recipe today for CREAMY CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP.

It is the PERFECT comfort food for cold days and it's 
oh so easy to whip up.


Tori's Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

In a pot combine:

2 Tbs. chicken bouillon
2 cups chicken broth
2 cup celery
2 cups chopped carrots
1/2 onion

Simmer until veggies are cooked.

Add to the pot:

2 cans of cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup milk

Mix it in and let it bubble until thick.

Add cooked noodles {any kind - I used shells because that's what I had on hand}.

Add 2 cups cooked chicken.

If soup is too thick - - add more broth.

* I think some peas or corn would be super delish to add as well!

This Weekend:


London had a sick bug.
Poor thing was miserable.
Thank goodness she had Cubby to keep her warm.
{Seriously...what did we ever do without Cubby?}

I worked on orders up in my craft room for most of the day. 

And London perked right on up come afternoon time when her 3rd grade teacher {best ever!} sent home some chocolate cherries for her {her FAVORITE!}

* We all stayed in on Friday night.

I made homemade creamy chicken noodle soup 
{recipe coming tomorrow!}
and Joe and I watched Dateline.

It was pretty much a perfect evening.

* Saturday the kids had dance rehearsals.

We met up with my cute mom at the McDs for a beverage...

And then Saturday night I attended a super fun and festive White Elephant Gift exchange party with some of my dearest friends....

The host served Sonoran hotdogs {YUM!} and can you even believe how BIG these dogs were...???

I made it home with some of Joycee's 'Crack Corn'... I sorta feel like I was the REAL WINNER of the night!

* Churchey-church on Sunday.
Our Sacrament meeting was on CHARITY and I just LOVE the quote that was printed on our programs...

Such good words to live by, don'tcha think?

* Sunday afternoon nap.

* We piled in the car on Sunday night and did a round of deliveries with some of our neighbor gifts

This little tra-dish is SO much fun for us and I love that we can do it all month long leading up to Christmas!
