Remember how we gave each other the gift of memories and moments during Christmas 2018? The November envelope was a fondue party labeled Fondue Fun!

It wasn't fancy, but it sure was fun! We had angel food cake, chocolate, grapes, strawberries, bananas, and marshmallows.

We made a cheese fondue that was honestly a bit of a flop. If anyone can give me tips on how to make it runny instead of stringy that would be fantastic. HA HA HA We used deer sticks, granny smith apples, celery, bread and pretzel bites for our cheese fondue!

It was like one giant piece of string cheese!

We used a lot of things we already had like a little crockpot and a chocolate melting pot that I have previously used to melt candy melts for cake pops. I did purchase these, just so we could feel fancy. You can see just how fancy we were based on the Hawkeye mug that served as the storage for the forks.

I encourage each of you to consider giving the gift of time to your family. I know I will always cherish these envelopes and the fun that they brought us each month and who knows maybe we will give cheese fondue another try sometime.

Do you have a favorite fondue recipe or memory?

Wreck this what?

Looking for a gift for that creative child, young adult or adult in your life?  Check out Wreck This Journal.

One of the many pages that the girls have created.

My daughter LOVES her Wreck This Journal, so much she has more than one.  She has been working in the same journal for over two years and continues to work in it, add new things, and change the cover of it often.  Seriously, every time I see it laying around it has a different look on the cover!

Here are several reasons you should order one today:

  1. It provides cheap entertainment for kids, literally, they run around the house looking for scraps, fruit stickers, used stamps, and gum to put in the journal.
  2. It keeps kids busy for minutes, half-hours, hours and days at a time.  Who doesn’t need an activity like that when it is 3* Farenheit?
  3. It sparks creativity in all ages!  I have watched my girls create things with their imaginations and sometimes wonder how they even thought of the things they wrote in their journal.
  4. It’s inexpensive for the amount of fun that is to be had with the book.

The girls and I would love to hear how you or the recipient of a Wreck This Journal liked the gift, comment below and tell us all about it.
