The holidays are drawing near, just a mere 23 days until Christmas! Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? I haven't! I did start earlier this year and found a few spectacular deals on the clearance shelves. I'd share them with you if my children didn't read my blog!
I'll be pressed for time this year with preparations as I'm headed to visit my family on the 18Th and returning on the 24Th. This doesn't give much time to prepare my Christmas menu or even bake cookies for Santa! This is a trip that is important as my father had been ill and I need to visit with him a little while. My children and I will still bake cookies even if it's a tad late that night. My daughter was afraid Santa would pass her by if she is up late, I told her that I'd shoot him an email that we'll be awaiting his arrival a little later.
Time restraints has brought me to check out Chex® for quick and easy snack entertainment ideas! Chex® is going to make it easier on me this year with the delectable assortment of Chex® Party Mix recipe's. You don't have to leave your Gluten-Free guests out!
