Christmas Festivities

I'm so bored now that Christmas is over! I just don't know what to do with myself!!! So.......I decided to share a little from our Christmas.

So on the eve of Christmas Eve, I decided to get crafty. I made Joy bottles for everyone. They turned out soooo cute! I found them on another blog, but they can be customized for anything. Basically, it's glass bottles filled with candy and then I Mod Podged scrapbook paper over the label and printed a label with a bible verse that had the word joy in it. Each bottle had a different verse. I was really proud of myself when they were all finished. Here are a couple of photos:

And then after I made the bottles, I decided to try cake balls! So yummy! You can make these with any cake and icing combination. I am a chocolate lover, so I used devils food cake, chocolate icing and chocolate covering. The recipe is soooo easy! You just bake your cake and let it cool completely. Then crumble the cake up in a bowl. Mix in a container of icing. Then scoop into balls and coat with melting chocolate. Let cool and you're done! So here's a few pics of that too:

And of course the delicious food on Christmas day:

As for today, I've got a photo shoot this evening and then a week off!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
