New Year’s Eve to many people means the end of a year and the beginning of the next. While in a sense it means the same to us it is especially special to my husband. That would be because it is his BIRTHDAY!! Yep my husband was born on New Year’s Eve. So he celebrates his birthday with the world. When it comes to special occasion’s and parties no one does them like my daughter. My daughter loves parties and she loves to plan them. It has become expected when a birthday rolls around.
Honey has already started her list for this years party. She is deciding if she wants to throw a “surprise” party or a “normal” party. (I think she is leaning towards surprise). We always visit a local craft store so she can make the birthday person a bunch of homemade presents. She is so thoughtful and really takes her time deciding what would be the best present.
Of course there is always food at a party. Honey loves to bake (the only type of food making I enjoy). In fact on Christmas Eve Honey and I were baking for hours. We made Bacon and Cream Cheese Biscuits, Oatmeal, Chocolate, Pecan, Almond Cookies and a Chocolate Nut Pie I found on Pinterest.
The biscuits Honey, my husband, and I ate throughout the day. The cookies and pie we saved for our family Christmas get together. In addition to the pie I purchased some flavored COOL WHIP. I had no idea there was flavored COOL WHIP until I saw it in my local freezer section. I purchased two flavors the chocolate and cream cheese (for the record the cream cheese is heavenly).
Since the pie was already full of chocolate we decided the cream cheese would make a perfect topping!
Anyway, Honey had a blast making it but that is not what we will be making for Daddy’s birthday. I would LOVE to share with you what we will be making but since my husband does read my blog I’m going to save that for a follow up post.
As you see we have many reason’s to celebrate during the holidays! It was great to gave COOL WHIP at our Christmas get together, especially with the fun new flavors.
