1 12oz bag fresh or frozen cranberries (no need to thaw)
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and cut into eighths
½ red pepper, cut into large chunks
½ medium red onion cut in large chunks
¾ cup sugar
1/3 cup apple juice
3 T chopped fresh cilantro
2 T chopped pickled jalapeno pepper
1 tsp grated lime zest
1 pkg spinach tortillas
Put cranberries, apple, red pepper, & onion in food processor. Pulse until chopped. Transfer to a large glass bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients until blended. Cover & refrigerate or spoon into jars for gift giving.
Heat oven to 375. Using a 3 inch tree shape cookie cutter cut trees from each tortilla. Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake 8 minutes or until crisp. Remove to a wire a rack to cool completely.
Serve or give with salsa.
(it looks especially cute in a glass jar with a ribbon tied around it.)

All you need is:
1 orange & 1 lemon
4 cinnamon sticks
6 bay leaves
a handful of cloves
Place in a bag with these directions:
in hopes that they too will enjoy the joy of the season.
It's also been fun getting the boys in on the making & giving action.
As most of you know, I'm all about homemade gifts and would absolutely LOVE more ideas!
So if you have some, please share them!

those who know Ben know he is VERY timid around dogs
he QUICKLY warmed up to this little girl!
Jacob has wanted a dog since he could say "dog dog".
mommy needs a little girl!
but only if JM isn't allergic
so once we figure that out maybe we can bring a little more meaning to the phrase
"snips, snails, & puppy dog tails"!

First on our agenda~
I've been eyeing these since last year when Sarah first posted them on her facebook. I finally got around to making my own.
We are going to put our favorite Christmas things to do inside each little muffin cup. (making cookies, driving to look at lights, watching Polar Express, etc.)
Sarah has a stock of them in her shop if you don't have time to make your own.
When Jenn asked me to send her some of my favorite pictures of the boys,
I had no idea it was for something this lovely.
I did suggest that she do a tutorial on her blog.
I'm ready to make one so if you are interested in making one too
let's pick a date to create them together!
and this shy pilgrim would be my ben!
