{Party Bee} We Wish You A Merry Christmas!

The weekend was such a crazy one for me as I was trying to finish making all of my Christmas goodies...and I was able to complete everything in the St. Nick of time! I am sure am tired, but I am so happy with how everything turned out. From the printables to the chocolates, everything was merry and bright! Now it is time to relax....that is until New Year's Eve!
Hope your family had a wonderful and blessed Christmas!

{Party Bee} The Penguin Holiday Collection

So you may be asking yourself why penguins this holiday season? Well just this past month when my son and I were shopping at Target, my son found a little stuffed penguin toy in the dollar section. He and his penguin haven't separated since and the little penguin has even been with him to the many places we have visited over the holidays...a few being Chicago, visiting Santa, The Polar Express...the North Pole! Because of his adorable friendship with his little penguin, I of course couldn't help myself and I had to create the Penguin Holiday Collection.You may also notice a little bit of inspiration from my peppermint cookies...penguins and peppermints are definitely my theme this year!

The entire collection is $10 and comes with the following:

- "Happy Holidays" and "Merry Christmas" pennant banner
- 3 circle designs with 6 different phrases. These are perfect for gift tags, cookie tags, cupcake toppers, decorations, the uses are almost endless!
- Treat bag labels
- Water bottle labels
- Decorative penguin pennant banner
- Water bottle labels
- Straw flags
- Large decorative penguin

Receive your order electronically and print out as many as you would like! Just send me an email requesting the Penguin Holiday Collection!

{Sugar Bee} Peppermint Candy Sugar Cookies

Earlier this month my husband stumbled upon Bakerella's tutorial for Peppermint Candy Sugar Cookies and instantly asked if I could make them just for him for Christmas. Well of course I thought they were super cute and very clever, but if you notice Bakerella makes hers adorably bite sized, however mini cookies would disappear too quickly in my household so I thought a large peppermint candy cookie would be fun and my husband could savor it a little longer! The best part about these cookies is that by adding a little peppermint extract, not only do they look like peppermint candies, but they taste like them too!

{Sugar Bee} The Start of a Beary Merry Christmas!

I don't know what happened but November somehow flew by and now it is December! Oh what fun it is now that the holidays have approached, but what a super busy time of the year...especially because I want to make sure that I remember to give small gifts to all of those people that I am so thankful to know. Among those people are my son's teachers. Three times a week my son is so excited to go to pre-school and see his teachers and instructional aides. I know that he is learning so much and that they really care about him, his education and total well being. As a parent, I am so grateful to know that my son is in good hands and that he is growing and learning so much in part because of them.

So this year I created little thank you totes that had a few goodies....
Inside they got a "beary" special Christmas sugar cookie....
...Peppermint bark in a snowflake cookie cutter, and some mint truffle Hershey kisses!
In case you were wondering where the adorable felt totes were from, I got them from the dollar section of Target! I love that section!

A BIG thank you to all of Jake's teachers!

What a wonderful start to what I know will be a "Beary" Merry Christmas!
