It's that time of year

My sister Debbie and I decided that we needed to enlist the help of an expert to help get our Christmas projects done. So this past Saturday we went out to our mom's and had a Super Saturday. I made our traditional popcorn cakes, with help from my mom of course.

The recipe we use is: 
1gallon of popcorn
1 stick of butter
1 lb bag of marshmallows
1 cup of candy of your choice

I decided to use dark chocolate & mint m&m's for my friend Melissa's popcorn cake and she seemed to really like it!
Stolen from her facebook page, this is after having it for 3 hrs. 
My best friend decided to help me out with the cakes and ran with me to pick up some supplies. We are super fast tough girls so watch out.

Here is one of our finished small cakes.

After we went and watched one of our brothers little girls dance recital, here are the sweet ballerinas.

Gracie had declared it the greatest day of her life, and I have to admit it was one of my favorites. I love working beside my mom & sister and spending time with my nieces and nephews. I think one of the reasons Christmas time is so great is the traditions we keep they remind us of past good times & make making new one sweet because we know we will look back at them with love next year.


  1. And I am thankful you make me a popcorn cake every year. I always look forward to it and would be sad if it didn't happen. I am also thankful you only make them once a year because I would be about 80 pounds heavier. Seriously, that thing was gone in 24 hours and I'm the only one who ate it. Thanks again! P.S. Seeing your post reminds me that I have been a slacker with my blog again.

  2. Those popcorn cakes are the best. I look forward to them every year. And what beautiful ballerinas in your picture!
