:: i finally got my neighbor gifts done, now i just need to actually get them all out ::
:: we did two different ones this year. i found these cute christmas night lights with santa clause and angels, and we gave them out with a tag that said: “may your holidays be merry and “bright!” get it, bright lights… ya not too creative, but they were still cute. ::
:: then since i ran out of the night lights i made this yummy peanut brittle recipe, along with the perfect fudge recipe and sent them off in little black boxes i picked up here, wrapped them in bakers twine + a tag that said merry christmas! ::
:: i don’t really know where i got the fudge recipe.. it must have been at church sometime because i actually found the little recipe card in my scriptures of all places tucked in there for me to try one day… random i know.. but whoever nancy allen is.. i thank you for the perfect fudge recipe [as it’s called] so here it is for you [typed exactly as i have it on my little card] ::
