Christmas Tour of Homes myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics

Welcome to our home here in Florida! You see what people do when they get bored and we have no snow...they make snowmen on the beach using sand. lol Today, Boo Mama is hosting Christmas Tour of Homes. I am so excited to be able to participate. My heart is bubbling over with enthusiasm over being able to see all of your Christmas decorations.

It brings joy to my heart to be able to share our decorations with you, as well, so kick off your shoes, and let's go get us something to drink. I just made some homemade hot cocoa. Here let me slip a peppermint candycane in it. Later, after we take a look around at all the decorations, I would love for you to try a seven layer bar. They are so rich and delicious, my family just loves them! Can you hear the Christmas music playing... It just fills our home with such Christmas warmth having good blogging friends like you come...shall we have a look around...

Seven Layer Bars

Ingredients:

1 stick butter (melted)
2 c crushed graham crackers
1 c chocolate chips
1 c butterscotch chips
1 c pecan pieces
1 c coconut

1 can sweetened condensed milk

Preparation:

These are our family's favorite. They are called Seven Layer Bars because there are seven ingredients. In a 9 x 13 pan, layer all the ingredients in order, drizzling the sweetened condensed milk over the top of all the ingredients, as this holds the bars together.
Bake 350 degrees until golden brown; just watch so that the edges don't burn. Enjoy!


That was so much fun! Just the two of us had a great time showing you around and being as you asked...enjoy the Seven Layer Bar recipe! We hope you have a wonderful and blessed Christmas and that your hearts are filled with joy and laughter!

It's so nice, Pamela. Your home just says, "Come in and celebrate with us." I love your snowmen. And what a clever way to present your tour.

Merry Christmas to you, sweet friend.

I'm running out of adjectives to describe all the wonderful Christmas decorations I've seen. However, I think spectacular aptly describes your Pamela. You are so creative. I love the "sandmen". And I also love your collection of snowmen. They are so adorable.
Your home refects the warmth and love in your heart dear friend.
Thank you so much for your prayers. It means so vey much.
P.S. I seem to have lost my picture somehow (sigh). I don't know what I did wrong!

Those snowmen crack me up! I love your home and yes, I would love some hot cocoa.

 
At 5:47 AM, Blogger Tammy said...

Oh wow! I just loved this, Pamela! Your slide show was SO beautiful the way you presented it.
As I type this, I'm freezing...so building snowmen out of sand doesn't sound so bad! :)
Oh, and thanks for the hot cocoa with peppermint stick...and recipe, too! :)

How neat snowmen made of sand.

I can't get over how wintry the outside of your house looks. It seems like a winter wonderland, who would know it is warm where you are.

You have a nack for decorating and I love the picture taken looking into the kitchen. Very warm and Christmasy.

You have been really busy putting out all your decorations. Love your snowman collection.

My family loves the seven layer bars too, only we have always called them Hello Dollies. I have no idea why! But they are delicious, especially right out of the oven.

You did a great job on your slideshow and your blog is just full of Christmas decorations too.

Have a Merry Christmas!

Thanks for sharing your home with us.

I'd like to say I would make the seven Layer bar but....being from Australia, I have know idea what grahams crackers are ! and 1 stick of butter is how much In grams or ozs ?? and butterscotch chips hmmm sounds yummy but not heard of here..

 
At 1:25 PM, Blogger Pamela said...

Carol,

Seven Layer Bars are easy to make and are my family's favorite!

1 stick of butter = 4 ounces

For the Graham Crackers I am going to try to link you within comments to their website. You might also know them as Honey Maid... The ones I use are third on the right! :)
