We had a wonderful Christmas this year. We went up to the mountains and cut our own tree. It was a very enjoyable day. Made lot of candy and treats. Enjoyed talking to family. Just a lovely and relaxing day.
This is the last of the photos I will post before the Christmas Pics for the year 2012.
This was our year of the chicken 🙂 I think the last chicken is the cutest.
The nicest the yard looked all year. This is before the yearly heat wave that kills everything.
Best cake I made all year. I made this for Tarzan’s birthday. It has a blue cake inside.

I cant wait to try some new crock pot meals!
No Bake Cookies!!!!! oh… the love 🙂
I found a recipe for no bake on allrecipes.com we tried it out and it was pretty good but I changed somethings to make it way better. I must say as far as cookies go theses pack a healthy punch.
Peanut Butter No Bake
1 3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup or 4 Tablespoons cocoa pd
3 cups rolled whole oats
1/2 cup Adams peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup mini M&M’s
1/2 cup Raisins
1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup chopped nuts
In a sauce pan heat butter, milk, sugar, and cocoa. Bring to a boil and cook 1 1/2 minutes. Take off heat and add peanut butter, salt and vanilla. Then mix in remaining ingredients. Scoop into desired size cookies on a silpat sheet and let cool.
