Dare to Share #142

It's the Friday before Christmas, and the bloggers were busy all through the house, 
there were recipes to make, cookies to bake, and decorations galore...
they were were so happy, and full of cheer, 
because the Dare to Share party was now here! 

Seriously... how did this month disappear?!  Can Christmas really  be only a few days away?   I have most of my presents, but nothing is wrapped yet.  This weekend we will be making our cookies and treats.  We are  really looking forward to being on holiday break for the next two weeks.   During this time we do not have any outside activities, and can really enjoy the the season. 

I had several projects planned for this week, but due to our hectic schedule I just did not have the time.  I will be sharing several of them in  these next few days leading up to Christmas.  One project I did share are these Reeses Cup Reindeer.  I bought the Reeses Cups on sale  after Halloween, and hid them from the kids so I could use them for the holidays.      They still managed to find them and eat about half the bag.  I know these reindeer will not last very long with my kids. 

One tradition in our house is to make a gingerbread house every year.  While we normally use a kit,  this DIY Gingerbread House recipe from over at Little House Living looks like a good one to try if you like to bake from scratch. 

Joy from Yesterfood had a special Christmas tradition in her house.. Every Christmas her mom made special fruit bread. She shared a recipe, and tips on how to make that gorgeous braided bread.  

My co host Kim from Kandy Kreations has a lot of great holiday posts this week over at her blog.  My favorite is this Elf on the Shelf personalized candy bar letter.  Be sure to stop over and check it out.  

Now it is time for this week's party..  You can link up anything that you would like to share. If you are chosen as a Dare to Share Feature of the day, your post will be featured on the blog and my social media. Kim also has shares features from the party on her social media as well. 

 Now link up and HAVE FUN!
