I have been saving the FHE Lessons from LDS Living Magazine online the past year. I had quite a file of lessons and decided to burn CD's and give them away---a year's worth of FHE lessons and ideas!

Some of our Bath and Body Combo Baskets
Russian Tea Baskets are a favorite!
Santa Soaps, Wall Flowers and Mouse Pads
Note to self: Order more cute Snowmen and Santa Sacks from Oriental Trading next year--perfect for the Bath and Body soaps and lotions!
Russian Tea and goodies!
We "canned" 48 pints of Russian Tea!
We made 3 batches of Chocolate Truffles (not pictured)
and a big batch of "Wonderful Stuff" (recipe follows).
Mix the following dry ingredients in a large bowl:
9 cups Golden Grahams Cereal
8 cups Corn Chex Cereal (This year we tried the chocolate mix)
2 cups coconut
1 cup sliced almonds
Mix the following in a saucepan and boil for 12 minutes, stirring
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter
Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Pour over cereal mixture and toss lightly. This year we added the holiday M & M's for color! Enjoy! This is one of those treats you just can't stop munching on! Warning: terribly addictive!
More Table Runners!
On Black Friday we were shopping in Boise and Mandy and I picked out enough holiday fabric to make 18 table runners. Just think of the tables we'll be running up and down this Christmas!
We hope you enjoy our gifts to you as much as we enjoyed making them!
A Very Merry Christmas and Best Wishes in 2010 to you and yours!

Preheat oven to 350
Makes 2 large loaves or 4 smaller ones
Grease and flour pans
Bake for 1 hour
3 ½ c flour
3 c. sugar
2 t baking soda
1 t nutmeg
1 t salt
1 t cloves
1 t allspice
1 t cinnamon
1 c oil
2 c. pumpkin puree
2/3 c. water
1 1/2 c. chopped walnuts
I usually make a triple batch. It is huge! It will make 4 large, 2 medium and 6 mini loaves, or 36 mini bundts. To triple the batch, use 2 big cans of pumpkin.
You could frost with a cream cheese frosting, but we like it plain with a little butter spread on it.
These loaves freeze well too! Enjoy and Happy Fall Y'All!

Izzy's is kind of an island tye-dyed look one. Mandy's got the same one, with a green underskirt, but I think your last one was green and yellow, so I went blue this time!
