A Very Family Christmas

Today we enjoyed some festive family cheer, at my husband's company Christmas party! Also a big hit with the kids!

Finally I was able to get a Santa picture without anyone crying!! I swear these are the hardest shots to get!

If you are attending any Holiday parties that involve kids, this would be the perfect hostess gift! It will entertain the kids and make your house smell amazing! I used my favourite playdough recipe, and just added a few Holiday ingredients! See recipe below!

Gingerbread Playdough Recipe

*4 cups all purpose flour
*4 cups water
*1 cup salt
*2 tablespoons cooking oil
*4 teaspoons cream of tartar
*2 tbsp. ground cinnamon
*4 tsp. ground ginger
*4 tsp. ground nutmeg
*4 tsp. ground cloves
*1 tsp orange extract {optional}

In a large pot whisk together dry ingredients. Next add the water, oil, and orange extract and stir until a thick batter is formed. Cook the mixture over low/medium heat until a thick dough forms. Turn out onto parchment paper and knead until smooth.

Divide the dough and store in small mason jars which you can decorate for gift giving! The picture above was provided by, which also provides a recipe!

Happy entertaining!!
