Christmas Shopping with our #Intel2in1

Sometimes it's just easier to stay put while you do your Christmas shopping. While I love to fight the traffic and join in on the hustle and bustle, sitting on the couch with a cozy blanket and some hot cocoa makes shopping much more enjoyable.


This year we helped our Mom do all of her Christmas shopping online, with her sitting right next to us.  It was a breeze on our new Intel 2 in 1.  We jumped from site to site, comparing prices and scouring over reviews and had it done in a snap.  It's so nice having a touch screen while scrolling through products!


And let me add, she's so happy with us now that she doesn't have to worry about the shopping part of Christmas. (I must say, we are all pretty jealous!)


How do you do your Christmas shopping?  At home or store to store?

Free Printable Santa Tags

Hi eighteen25 readers! So happy to be back here again to share another fun printable with you. I'm Kiki from Kiki and Company and my family and I have SO been enjoying getting ready for Christmas. I don't know about you, but I've got 5 kiddos and I hear arguments everyday about who believes in Santa and who doesn't. 2 don't believe in Santa and 3 still do. I love to prolong the magic of Santa as long as I can, but as my kids get older, I can't be so sloppy in my execution. That's where today's freebie comes in.

For all your Santa believers, here are 4 tags you can use on their Santa gifts.

No need to write anything, just print, cut and tape or tie a ribbon on it!

I'm also throwing in free Santa Stationary as well, so Santa can write your kiddos a note after he visits on Christmas Eve. (One year, one of my kids asked why his letter was on paper from the kitchen...after fumbling my way through that one, I've created Santa Stationary each year since!)

Sometimes it's nice to do something other than turkey for your holiday meal.  Cordon Bleu is one of our favorite alternatives.  I thought I'd play around with a time tested recipe and add pesto to the mix.  It's amazing!!!

12 Chicken tenderloins 
1 cup Pesto
24 slices of Canadian bacon or thinly sliced ham
12 slices of thinly sliced swiss cheese
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 pkg. Good Seasons garlic & herb dressing mix


Layer 1: chicken


Layer 2:  pesto


Layer 3: ham


Layer 4:  swiss cheese


5.  Roll it up and secure it with toothpicks




6.  Sprinkle with bread crumb mixture {bread crumbs, garlic & herb salad dressing mix, and parmesan cheese}


7.  Bake for 25 minutes at *400



Enjoy!
