Christmas Baking & Netflix Giveaway!

All decorated? Shopped? Baked? Wrapped? Cleaned? Entertained? Cooked? WHOA!  Holy cow, I totally get why some people do their Christmas shopping in the summer! It sounds crazy when you hear of folks shopping for Christmas in July but every year at this time, I wish I had started earlier! We have, decorated…well mostly. The last thing to do is the Christmas tree and that’s the weekend plan. Saturday, we’ll get the tree, put it up and let the branches fall and Sunday it’s decorating time. One of the best parts of Christmas decorating.

Wrapped? Nope. Entertained? A little, more to come. Cooked? Sorta. Cleaned? Uh…

Baked? Yes! I’m not a huge traditional Christmas cookie baker. So during the holidays, I still make my usual chocolate chip cookies, banana bread and of course my Garra's Christmas Nuts ‘n Bolts (they truly are the best!). I’ve told you before that baking with my kids is one of my favourite things to do with them. It’s a real mommy moment for me. So, the past two weeks we’ve been timing the baking of our treat with a Christmas show on Netflix. They’ve got them all and it’s awesome.  I needed to make a few dozen cookies for my office cookie exchange so I found a few recipes online for s'mores cookies. They were pretty yum, so a couple of nights ago, I made them again with our middle guy and made a few modifications. They're really easy and taste exactly like a s'more. You can't deny them.

We cued up our fav Netflix Christmas shows, got working in the kitchen and while they baked, we watched. Here has been some of our favs!






The best part is that we aren’t waiting around for the shows to come on tv, they’re ready when we are. 
I'm a huge lover of The Mindy Project. That's what I'm watching when everyone is asleep. 

In the spirit of the holidays, let’s do a giveaway!! I’ve got 2 six month Netflix subscriptions to giveaway. Woot! Let me know in the comments what family holiday show or movie you plan to watch this month. 

Good luck my friends! I'll draw one winner on Friday and one next Wednesday!

Sorry about the small font everywhere folks, not sure what is up with my computer today!
