Stocking Stuffer Yummies!!

So this year, since it will be our first Christmas as husband and wife I really want to go over the top and add all the special touches to the holidays. I was looking for some fun and unique ideas for stocking stuffers! We like to try to keep stocking stuffers cheap, but sentimental and thoughtful. I ofcourse will be making my signature peanut butter homemade fudge, and I may possibly try my hand at some mocha almond biscotti again. (I burnt my last batch, and it was less mocha and more mush-a-mush.) A good friend of mine also recommended this blog to me, http://bakerella.blogspot.com/2008/12/its-beginning-to-look-lot-like.html. I plan on making these raindeer cake pops, and cannot wait to see how they turn out!! I am also going to try the recipe for red velvet cake balls covered in Chocolate!! I am sure this will be a huge hit for the inlaws, and I'll have to save a few for the family back home! :)

Christmas With The Monahans!

It has been a very busy December here in Halifax. We have been very excited about the holidays, and are gearing up for the Christmas Season!! Our Christmas tree is finally up, and we did put up a few ornaments and decorations around the house. I am still searching for the perfect "Our First Christmas" ornament!! We are really excited about this being our first Christmas as husband and wife!! Here are some pics of our tree, and other Christmas festivities!

Holiday Cheer! :)

One of my favorite ornaments... until we find "Our First Christmas"

You can see Jon and I snuggling in this Christmas Ball! :)

Homemade knit scarves for special someone's under the tree!

Our tree, slowly but surely Santa keeps putting more under!
