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?

Happy Friday!  What a crazy week of polar vortex it has been, 4 snow days in a row is wild!  I think the girls were starting to get tired of not being able to play outside and get some fresh air, one probably wouldn’t admit it, but I think she was even excited to get back to school today!

At Christmas time as a fun family gift we decided to give the gift of time to each other. I gave each person in our family three manila envelopes with different dates on the front. Each person had to plan a fun family event for the month and put it in the envelope and then on the 1st of the month we will open the envelope and make plans to do the family activity.

Ellie had January and she had roller skating and supper out in her envelope.  We truly had every intention on going to Roller City on a Tuesday night, but the weather has not cooperated. So...we did our January outing tonight on February 1st!  🙂

Roller City is such a fun local place for all ages. I remember going to Roller City as a child and I think the best part of going as an adult is how it doesn’t feel much different, it is like a blast back into the past especially when they play songs by Tiffany!

We are super excited to open our February envelope!  I told them they had to wait until tomorrow since we did our January fun today. 😉

What fun things do you do as a family? Any ideas for us?
