Happy Advent all! I love this time of year so much. The anticipation, nostalgia, and tradition I experience is indescribable. For me, this season always seems to renew my spirit and build up my faith as the new year approaches.
Ironically, for the last 8 years, the first couple of weeks of advent has meant finals and all the misery that comes with it. Exams and papers and projects, OH MY! In fact, I just finished compiling notes for an exam I have this week, and it totaled 113 pages. 113 PAGES! And that, my friends, is just the tip of the iceberg. With that said, this post is the best I can do for now, even though I am eager to share so much more!
This weekend, Lyle and I had our annual Christmas decorating night. We always bake cookies and watch Home Alone while decorating, but this year we decided to change things up and make rice krispy treats. This is what we came up with:
We used half rice krispies and half coco krispies for the rice krispy treats.
Then, while the treats were still hot, we melted peanutbutter and drizzled it on top.
Finally, we melted milk chocolate chips, spread the melted mixture on top, and let it set in the fridge so the chocolate could re-harden.
Dangerously delicious! Do you have any special Christmas traditions? We are only just getting started!
