Christmas at our House and Dairy-Free Fudge

Welcome, come on in. Grab some hot chocolate and warm up.

Make yourself comfy and at home.

Here's a peek of Christmas at our house.

This is the tree in the girls room. It's only been redecorated about 20 times, not too bad. They usually chat late into the night by the light of this tree. Sometimes, in the interest of better sleep and happier girls we turn it off. But, it's Christmas time and they're sisters. That's what girls do.


You've seen the Hot Wheels Tree, how about a look at the hallway at the top of stairs. Love the big sparkly red tree.
A reminder of the reason for it all.

And this is usually what our other nativity looks like-I have this Goodwill find just so the kids can play with it. They love it. And Jesus really is that cool. Our savior would have probably had a skateboard as a kid, don't you think?
The kids always decorate gingerbread on December first. Then they beg to eat it for the rest of the month.
And the button tree we made last year.


And yesterday I made the most yummy fudge! Most people can eat dairy just fine, there's some who choose not to and some who just can't. I fall into the latter category. It's really not that bad, unless it's Christmas time and there's lots of yummy treats around. Thankfully, there's plenty of alternatives. Like this fudge-I felt the urge to hide in the pantry and eat it all myself. But in the spirit of Christmas and sharing and all, I didn't. But I think I'd better make another batch!
4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cocoa powder
1/2 soy milk
2 TBSP non-hydrogenated margarine
1 1/2 vanilla
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
Spray a 9x9 well with non stick spray. Combine powdered sugar, cocoa powder, margarine, vanilla and chocolate chips. Bring soy milk just to a boil over med-high heat. Pour over the rest of the ingredients and mix until smooth. Pour into pan and place in refrigerator over night until it's set. Yumm, yumm!
