KIR ROYALE AND A LITTLE ELF ON THE SHELF FUN!

A little holiday cheer from me to you...


Chill a flute or pinot glass and pour in approximately 1 tablespoon of chambord, add a fresh raspberry and top off with French Champagne.


The first snow...snow angels!

Do you have an elf at your house? We stay really busy in December with our elf, Elfie. He is a little elf that Santa sends to our house the day after Thanksgiving and he watches my children all day then flies back to the North Pole at night to report to Santa. They are not allowed to touch him or he will lose his flying power and Santa will not be able to know if they have been good or bad. He is always up to mischief and I absolutely love hearing my children scream with delight when they find him in the middle of his shenanigans.
