Advent - 3 Days until Christmas

Elf from New Line Cinema

Today's Advent activity:

Watch Christmas movies all day

Self explanatory, of course. What we do all Advent season is unwrap a Christmas movie about once or twice a week, as time allows. However, this season, we've been so busy we've only unwrapped one. Guess we'll be catching up today.

We did quite a bit of baking yesterday...except we didn't actually bake anything. Everything was a no bake recipe.

I've been asked what Turtle poop is. Well, it was an accident.

We had a recipe:

Chocolate bars like Almond Joy and Reece's

Almond bark

Place candy in blender. Roll them into small balls and dip in almond bark.

That didn't work out quite like we expected. Could have been because it was too hard to set up. Don't know. It was a huge messy mess.

But as we tried with all our might to make something out of it, we just started calling it turtle poop. Easy to make. Yummy to eat. Fun name.

Hi, Michelle. I'm Jo from 'Diary Of A Sad Housewife'--thanks for stopping by my blog.

So sorry I nearly ruined the 'Survivor' finale for ya--yikes!

Ed (my hubs) just watched it last night (I DVR'd it as I knew he would fall asleep Sunday)--I'd be curious as to know your thougths and feelings on it when you do get to watch it: Do you feel as I do? What would you have liked to seen happen?

Hit me back @ http://diaryofasadhousewife-jo.blogspot.com/

Nice to meet another 'Survivor' fan--there seem to be so few of us on blogspot...

Merry Christmas to you and yours! :)

Peace, love, happiness and health,

P.S. Where are my manners???

Congratulatiosn on your impending arrival--you seem like a very hands on Mommy. What a lucky baby this child will be!

You also, I neglected to mention, have a very eye catching blog design--I am going to be doing a whole new blog overhaul in January...and I need serious help as I am hopelessly gadget stupid and can't figure stuff out! ha!

Stop by and visit again soon!

LOL!!!! Will have to try to make Turtle poop! Thanks for the explanation! LOL!

Tonight we are walking the river walk to see the lights (I'll take pics!) and tomorrow we are going to do gingerbread houses...assuming my girls, my foster sister, and my niece don't eat it all first!

Turtle poop? How cute!!!

One year a co-worker gave everyone baggies full of little white marshmallows. Attached was a poem: "You've been naughty so here's the scoop: all you get for Christmas is snowman poop."
