Beat The Cold!


It is very cold and wet here in B.C. it is raining on top of all our fresh snow turning everything into a slushy nightmare. So here I sit thinking about the things that make me feel warm and cozy when the weather gets me down. 

First on my list is a nice warm drink like this Hot Cocoa from One Good Thing By Jillee she also has an ipad giveaway on right now for you to check out. Or you can try any of these 50 holiday drinks!

I love sitting with my warm drink with a soft fuzzy blanket watching Christmas movies like:


  • Frosty The Snowman
  • Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
  • Jack Frost
  • Christmas With The Kranks
  • Elf
  • How the Grinch Stole Christmas
  • The Santa Clause 1, 2, and 3
  • Home Alone
  • Fred Clause 
  • 4 Christmases
  • and any other Christmas special that comes on.
Baking delicious Christmas cookies is an excellent way to spread the cheer and warm some hearts. I love making sugar cookies with my little ones because they get to decorate them and have a good time. Here is my sugar cookie recipe:

Roll Out Sugar Cookies
  • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened 
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 5 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt

Directions

  1. Cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.
 You can ice these cookies with any icing you like but when I have my kids do them we use a mixture of evaporated milk and icing sugar thin enough for the kids to spread on easily. Add drops of food coloring and have fun!
