Only 7 days left...

Merry Christmas time everyone! This is by far my favorite time of the year. We are kind of sad right now because we are so far away from home and family, but we are making the best of it :) First off, and most importantly, a few pictures of my Christmas babies.

Rahjah's santa outfit from last year no longer fits him. He's gained a few pounds since then.

He was NOT impressed with his Christmas outfit.
I am really low on cash this year, so one thing I made was some dog biscuits for my friends and family who have dogs. They are vegetarian biscuits, not vegan so you can alter it to be vegan. Just make sure all the ingredients are doggie approved :) Here's the ingredients I used:

3/4 cup Milk 
1 Egg
1 cup Plain Peanut Butter (no added sugar)
1 cup Brown Rice Flour
1 1/2 cups Oat Flour 
1 Tbsp baking powder

Roll out, cut into shapes, and bake at 375 for 15 min. 
*I would like to add that I don't normally just have oat and brown rice flour lying around. If you have a good quality blender, you can just make your own. Simply take the brown rice and pour it into your Blendtec (what I use) and blend until it is flour! Same goes for the oats.*

This is how mine looked after. I used my Christmas cookie cutters. 

Here is the bird feeder we made for our birdie friends. All it is is a pinecone dipped in peanut butter and covered in bird seed! The birds love it!
This was the easiest, funnest homemade Christmas gift I made. These are some homemade soap crayons that I made for my nephews. They are super easy! All you need is:

1-2 bars of Castile soap
Warm water
Food coloring

Take the soap bar and grate it with a cheese grater. Mix it with warm water and your choice of colors. Put it into any type of mold and let it sit in a warm, dry place for 2-3 days. Then your soap crayons are ready!

Merry Christmas everyone! I will try to post again before Christmas. I have really been slacking and for that I am sorry. I need to do another food post. This was doesn't have any food in it! What was I thinking? 


  1. Your dog is too the antlers!

  2. I am so impressed you can get a Christmas outfit on your cats. I have thought about it for ours but since I knew I wouldn't even get a picture since they would have it off so fast I decided against it.

    How sweet that you are making dog biscuits. Something tells me all you friends will really appreciate them.

    Are you hoping for snow for you first Christmas in the new place?


  3. i love that you used christmas cookie cutters for the dog treats! those will be a real hit! have you checked out she has tons of treat recipes.ttysoon Merry Christmas!

  4. Katrina- Thanks girl. He didn't like um, haha.

    Ali- I have tried a Christmas outfit on all my animals. The only one who didn't really mind was Rahjah. It would be cool to have snow, but I am really missing Hawaii a lot.

    Dirty Duck- Thanks! And thanks for the reminder of her site. I haven't been there in a while. I forgot all about it! Merry Christmas

  5. Rahjah and Sonic are so cute! Those are wonderful gifts; homemade is the best kind. If we don't hear from you before, a very Merry Christmas to you and yours! :)

  6. Awww love the pets! :) And I like the homemade dog biscuit idea!

  7. Is that 'Elf' on tv? I think your homemade presents are really nice.

  8. Rose- Thanks Rose, you as well!

    Sarah- Thanks Sarah. I love making dog biscuits, but just don't do it as often as I would like.

    Shen- Haha, you know it! And thanks :)

  9. I plan on making some dog biscuits and muffins for my baby for Christmas also. Yours turned out so cute!

    Great pic of you and your hubby!

  10. I love seeing your animals in their outfits! The pinecone birdfeeder sounds like a great idea - I bet they love it too.

  11. Michelle- I saw yours and love um!

    Jessica- The birdies do love it! I always feel bad for the wildlife over here because it's so cold out. I figure, the least I can do is put food out for them. I always have critter corn out for the squirrels as well :)
