It’s CHRISTMAS WEEK guys!

Aren’t you so excited! πŸ™‚ I know I am! My parents come in on Christmas Day and then the festivities begin.

Although, we’ve started a few things over this weekend. My Mother-in-law, Cason and I made a bunch of Christmas cookies this weekend. Then on Saturday, Mike and I took little man to go see Santa for the first time. It was so funny to see his face when he saw the big man in a red suit for the first time. He almost didn’t know what to do … he just stared, smiled and then whispered as he talked to him. It was the cutest thing ever!

I’m excited for my parents to come in, we usually only get to see them like two to three times a year but the holidays is always my favorite time! My mom did a great job of creating fun traditions when we were growing up and to this day my brother and I still count on them!

She still gives us presents “from santa” even though we are both waayyy to old for Santa.

We still watch the movie White Christmas every year even though we’ve see it um…. 50 plus times!

We used to drive down “Candy Cane Lane” every year to look at the lights. Now that we don’t live in Wisconsin anymore we try to search out a fun neighborhood to go through here in Texas. It’s a must!

And my personal favorite, my mom’s hot apple cider!

She use to make a triple batch of this stuff during the holidays and would keep it warming on the stove the entire night.

Well, I decided enough was enough. No more letting the gas run. It’s way easier and safer to just keep it in a crock pot all night then over the stove with actual fire underneath.

I changed up the recipe a bit and made it with apple juice instead of apple cider and then added all my flavorings; whole cloves, whole cinnamon sticks, loads of citrus and a little bit of brown sugar. This apple cider recipe is so simple to make, you literally just dump everything into the Crock Pot, cover and serve!

It’s great served as is or you can make it more “adult” and add a shot of brandy. Either way it’s delicious, tummy warming, and down right perfect for the holidays!

Just a warning, make a double batch, this stuff will be gone in the blink of an eye.

Cheers my friends!
