These ranch pretzels are so easy and great to snack on! Perfect for a New Years Party! I am not really a ranch fan, but I love these. I got this recipe from a church activity.

3 oz. Orville Redenbacker Oil
1 dry pkg. Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
24 oz. small round pretzels

Pour over pretzels. Stir Often

Family Friendly New Year Party

With all of our kids, we will probably not go out as a couple but stay in and ring in the new year as a family. Here is the plan to make it fun for the whole family.

Lot of fun snack food and appetizers

sparkling cider in fancy glasses

Let the kids do most of it with ballons and streamers

Make Time Capsules from the past year
Make Resolutions
Play games
Make Pary Hats

We will do it a little early maybe 9:00. Count down and celebrate with noise makers.

Christmas Tables

I couple of week ago, I went to a Relief Society Christmas Dinner. Different women decorated each table. I was seated at this darling table decorated by Lisa. It was seriously amazing! And I loved the non-traditional colors. Here is a look at her table and all the others. It was so fun to see all the cute designs. Great job ladies.

A Look Inside

Here is a look inside my house at some of my Christmas decorations.

Kids' Tree

One of these years all the stockings will match.

A look at the outside. I can not take credit for any of this.
