On the Third Day of Christmas . . .

Stephen got these cute snowman nail polish for Kelsey.

Kelsey helped Jaden make this pull tab can that had goodies inside.

Take a Campbell's soup can, open it from the bottom, empty contents and wash out the can.

Take the label off.

Decorate the outside of can with scrapbook paper and fill with goodies.

Then take your lid and hot glue it back onto the bottom of the can.

Flip can over and decorate the top of the can. When Braxton received his gift he pulled the tab to see what's in the can. Fun gift idea.

I made this for Stephen. I found the pattern for the stocking box here. Then I filled a cellophane bag full of fudge puddles, the recipe is at the end of the post. Super cute box to use for any gift giving.

Fudge Puddles:

1/2 c. butter or margarine
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Combine and chill for 1 hour.

Shape into 48 balls, 1" each. Place in lightly greased mini-muffin tin. Bake at 325 degrees for 14 minutes or until lightly golden brown.

Remove from oven immediately make "wells" in the center of each cookie with a melon baller. Cool in tins for 5 minutes.

1 c. milk chocolate chips
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp. vanilla
1 -14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
Combine and microwave for 90 seconds. Mix well.

Fill each shell with filling. And there you go easy and yummy!

Braxton wrote a sweet note for his twelve days gift to me.
We are having so much fun with our twelve days of Christmas!
