2014 Christmas Ornaments

Before I unveil the 2014 ornament, I though it would be nice to see the last five years.

And now, without further ado, the 2014 Godkid Christmas Ornament:

Book Blog Challenge – Day 3

What’s the last book you flung across the room?

I can’t recall ever flinging a book across a room. I respect books too much to throw them–even the poorly written ones. The last book I gave up on was “John Henry Days” by Colson Whitehead. I really wanted to like the story, I just didn’t. I didn’t care at all about the characters.

12 Day Book Challenge

I got this idea from Good Books, Good Wine. Here’s the challenge I’ll be starting after Christmas:

  1. What book are you currently reading?
  2. What’s your bedtime reading ritual?
  3. What’s the last book you flung across the room?
  4. Recommend a tear-jerker.
  5. Describe how you shop for books.
  6. How do you choose what book to read next?
  7. Describe one under-appreciated book everyone should read.
  8. What are your deal breakers?
  9. Name the worst book you read last year and the best.
  10. Make 10 book related confessions.
  11. A book you wish you could live in.
  12. What is the next book you’re going to read?

Homemade Boulders

I built paper mache boulders to hide the Indiana Jones treasure under. I used the tutorial here, to create them. Instead of having the bottom and one side open though, I just have the bottom open, so that I can hide the treasure underneath them. They didn’t turn out as amazing as I had hoped–you can see the strips of newspaper, but they’re still pretty cool. I used grey primer spray paint because it covers well and isn’t shiny. After a few coats, I did a light spray of flat black to give it some depth.

8th Day of Christmas

On the eighth day of Christmas, I wrapped all my presents. For my immediate family, I used word search gift tags (got the idea on Pinterest). They will have to figure out if their name is in the word search and keep the gift if it is. If their name isn’t in the word search, they’ll have to hand it off to someone else and the process will repeat itself. Should be interesting on Christmas morning… “:)

2nd Day of Christmas

On the second day of Christmas, I made cinnamon ornaments. The whole house smelled wonderful while they baked. Now my tree smells wonderful too.

Strawberry Season

After picking some 30 pounds of strawberries, I had more than I knew what to do with…. Which meant it was time to hit up Pinterest for ideas. I ended up making Strawberry Bread, Strawberry Cream Cheese Cobbler, Quick Strawberry Jam, and Strawberry Butter. (Yes, I like Martha Stewart.) I think my absolute favorite strawberry-related recipe was the Coconut Cream Fruit Dip, which I call Cloud Dip, because I’m pretty sure that this is what a cloud would taste like in heaven. It’s light and fluffy, not too sweet, and perfect for fruit, especially fresh picked strawberries.

Coconut Cream Fruit Dip (aka Cloud Dip)

  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 (15oz) can Cream of Coconut (Not coconut milk! Find this in the aisle with the margarita mix & other mixers.)
  • 1/2 (8oz) tub Cool Whip
  1. Whip the cream cheese with the cream of coconut in a stand mixer until all lumps are gone.
  2. Remove paddle, & fold in cool whip.
  3. Serve with fruit or graham crackers.
