We dressed a few Rootbeer Bottle Sodas up as Reindeer.
I found this darling idea on Pinterest.
We attached movie type candy, popcorn and strung movie gift cards on a few. You could even tuck a few DVD's in too. For Jake's teachers and little friends we just gave out individual reindeer pops.

Grab two of your favorite colors of pipe cleaner. Twist each one in the shape of antlers. Twist together and hot glue to the back of soda bottle.
Glue on eyes and nose.
Finish your reindeer with some darling ribbon for a scarf and attach a jingle bell or two.

I have always wanted to make Gingerbread Houses or buy one of those cute little kits.
I didn't want a big project, so I thought mini gingerbread houses would be perfect.
They are the cutest little magical things.
We are definitely going to add another Christmas tradition to our list :)
Mini Gingerbread Houses
Graham crackers1 tube easy squeeze icing, white1 can easy flow frosting, whiteassorted candies and coconut
For each house, glue together with icing 5 graham cracker squares, without a top.
For roof, cut one graham cracker square in a triangle with a serrated knife.
Use two more graham cracker squares for the roof. Secure with icing and let dry.
Using the easy flow frosting with star tip, squeeze frosting to cover all of your gingerbread house seams.
Decorate with candies and let dry.
Tip: We put each house on a sheet of wax paper. When everything was dry, we transferred our houses to a pretty plate. Decorate around the houses with more coconut and steps made of peppermint candies.
CUTE!!! Easy Easy :)

Along came a Spider Cookies
1 package Great Value Devils Food Cookie Cakes1 package good white chocolate, melted1 package mini red M&M'sPretzel sticksMelt chocolate in microwave for 30 seconds, stir and repeat until chocolate is melted. If you use white chocolate chips, follow the direction on the package. You will need to add some shortening.
Dip cookie tops and sides in white chocolate and place on wax paper. Break pretzels in half and insert four legs on each side of spider body. Give your spider some red eyes or any color you wish.
You can also use Red Hot candies and black licorice rope for legs :)
I think white Spiders are the CReepIESt so that's why we dipped ours.
