DIY Grinch Ornament

One of my favorite Christmas movies is Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas. I love the original cartoon version narrated by Boris Karloff! His voice is one of those classic voices that you never forget.

12 Days of Cookies- Candy Cane Blossoms

I love peppermint! It’s one of my favorite things about the holiday season! There’s just something about the smell that makes a home so inviting and festive! Candy cane blossoms are somewhat new to me. I have made them before, but didn’t use this recipe. I think this one turned out so much better.

12 Days of Cookies- Grandma’s Peanut Butter Cookies

My grandma didn’t make peanut butter cookies as often as she did the monster cookies, but they were a family favorite too! The house would always smell like peanut butter for days after she made them. When I smell lingering peanut butter now I think of her!

12 Days of Cookies- Monster Cookies

The printable recipe on this post did not save correctly. I’m working on fixing this ASAP. Monster cookies have always been a family favorite! My grandma made them and I always thought I would never get the recipe. She gave it to church family as wedding shower gifts and I was sad that my friends were getting it before I was. Well, when we made our first visit to Southern Illinois she gave it to me for my birthday. She also gave me a few of the ingredients!

Enter His Gates

Psalm 100:4 says  Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

Enter His Gates with Thanksgiving

This always reminds me of a song we would sing at church. I will enter His gates with thanksgiving in my heart. I will enter His courts with praise. I will say this is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice for He has made me glad.

 

Giving thanks shouldn’t be limited to just one day a year. We need to be thankful to God every day of our lives. As we gather around the table this year let’s be thankful for the people in our lives, the food before us, and the love between us.

Here’s my November Intentions for Random Crafty Georgia Girl

  1. batch write recipes
  2. schedule social media through Thanksgiving
  3. batch write posts for holidays
  4. work on better images for the blog

I’m looking forward to prepping my blog for the holiday season and new year! It’s always a great feeling to start a new year with a fresh outlook on the blog!
