Nutter Butter Reindeer

Posted by on Tue, December 21st, 2010 at 11:00 am


Only four days left until I can bake up a storm with my favorite kiddos, Julia and Kaylee. Julia is seven and Kaylee is five. Their mother was a good friend of mine in high school and they’ve been the highlight of my trips back to Oklahoma since I’ve moved to LA. Plus, this could very well go down as their greatest Christmas ever; they’re at the perfect age to enjoy all the simplest aspects of holidays with family and friends. Their mother and myself have picked out some fun holiday snacks to put together with the girls.

Below are directions on how to make Nutter Butter Reindeer:

What you need:

  • Nutter Butter Cookies
  • Tiny Twist Pretzels
  • Large Bag of Red or Green M&M’s
  • White Frosting in Tube

After you have laid your Nutter Butter’s out on a tray simply, break the bottoms off the pretzels so you are left with two antler looking pieces.

Glue the sides of the antlers on using the white frosting and do the same to put the M&M’s where the eyes belong.

Not only do the girls get to help put these awesomely festive snacks together for all the house guests, they are also getting this great new game from Mattel, Mindflex. Sure at first this game seems a bit quirky and the headgear that each player must wear certainly is dorky but I know the girls will love it and fighting to beat a five year old at ‘mind control’ game should be pretty easy… or I’ll just have to say I ‘let her win’ because beating a five year old is cruel. Plus, it will be a great way to distract them for a little while, so me and their mom share the stories of our new lives while sipping our favorite vino next to the fireplace.

It’s gonna be good; I can’t wait to board the plane and high tail it home. Unfortunately, I was unable to find anywhere online where you Swaggernauts could still get Mindflex in time for Christmas but that doesn’t mean the site or store does not exist, so if anyone in Swag Nation has a clue where you could still pick one up, please share in the comments here.

Is anyone else getting excited or picking up a new board game this year that they are excited to share with your family?

The NFL Playoff Picture

Posted by on Mon, December 20th, 2010 at 5:00 pm

The NFL Playoff Picture is reminiscent of a high school algebra problem where a+b=c but only if c kicks the crap out of d. But as week 15 comes to a close, the playoff picture is starting to take shape. Keep in mind that I grew up a Browns fan so post-season has never really […]

Don’t you love cuddling up with some blankets and a steaming cup of hot cocoa, and watching holiday movies? There is just something so comfortable, soothing, and festive about gathering with the family to watch “It’s a Wonderful Life,” or “Miracle on 34th Street.” One of my favorite holiday movies is Elf (which happens to […]

One Turntable and No Microphone

Posted by on Mon, December 20th, 2010 at 2:00 pm

There’s something cool about the sound of recordings on vinyl – the scratches, pops and imperfections make each individual record unique. The drawback is the fact that it’s not really that big a format anymore. Plus they’re not so portable. In situations like that it’s handy to have the Numark USB Turntable, available through our […]
