Chaotic Christmas Countdown
Day 65
and Creating Christmas
Day 5

14 more days to go after today!!!  Just UNBELIEVABLE!!!  I know that time goes by faster since I have had kids!!  BUT I love the holidays and watching my kids enjoy the season!!!


Today I made

NORTH POLE SMOOTHIES!!!!!






Nathaniel has had 2 and I have had 1!!!  They are easy and AWESOME!!!!  ;)

Ingredients!

1  package (10 ounces) frozen strawberries in syrup undrained and thawed!                                 

1/4 cup water          
2 cups vanilla frozen yogurt





2 tablespoons vanilla reduced-fat yogurt
1 peppermint candy cane, about 6 inches long, finely crushed                                         
Betty Crocker® green decorating gel
Place strawberries and water in blender. Cover and blend on medium-high speed until slushy. Blend on medium speed until smooth. Transfer to a cup
Wash and dry blender. Place frozen yogurt and reduced-fat yogurt in blender. Cover and blend on medium speed until smooth
Place crushed candy cane on small plate. Pipe decorating gel around rim of two 12-ounce glasses. Dip rims into crushed candy canes!
Carefully pour yogurt mixture and strawberries at the same time into glasses, creating a half-and-half design. Serve with large drinking straws!
And you wanna talk about CHAOS..........here is what happened while I was making them......


And YES that is my CEILING!!!!!  ;)

But even though I messed up the kitchen, they are TO DIE FOR and would be so easy to make for a party and taste really good with the

from yesterday's post!!!!

Have an AWESOME day and see you tomorrow for
Day 66!!


This is our sweet baby TAZ who passed away at home last night!!! This picture was taken Wednesday night sitting in her Daddy's lap!!! We are very sad today and she will be missed terribly!!!  18 years is a long time and to wake up without her today has been heartbreaking!!!  PLEASE keep us in your prayers!!

  12. I am so sorry for your loss. Many don't understand that to lose a pet is to lose a family member. My blessings to you and yours.

    The smoothie looks fantastic. You could even do them with the red and green candy canes and skip the coloring gel. Mmmmmm. Yikes about the ceiling. That's what they make mops with long handles for, right?
