More Elf on the Shelf Ideas - Jack's Adventure's 2014




Jack returned this year and dressed the girls' stuffed animals in Christmas shirts.

The next night, Jack took a ride in Sofia the First's carriage.
Then jack got a little more mischievous by inflating an outdoor decoration inside the house and going for a ride on the merry-go-round.


 Jack brought new ornaments for the girls' trees.

Jack got stuck in the daisy churn.
Jack found a good spot in the tree to watch.
 And he put reindeer antler's and a Rudolph nose on my car.
 He rode around in the cup holder of the car that day.
 He went for a ride on the little tractor.
 He hung out with Santa.
One night Santa sent a message to remind the girls to be good.
Jack brought window clings.
 He even hid in the container or licorice.
 Jack waited to see the toothfairy.
 Hung out in a plant.
Watch one of the girls from their canopy.
 He loves chocolate covered cherries.
 He pretended to be Tony the Tigger.
He took a marshmallow bath.
 Sat on the drums.
 Played guitar.
He drew faces on their photos.
 He hung candy canes on the ficus tree.
We can't wait to see what Jack will be up to next year.

Crock Pot Pumpkin Butter




Today, was a snow day and it seemed like a perfect day to make Pumpkin Butter in the crock pot.
I found a few recipes online and I made some adjustments. Less sugar and Pumpkin pie spice rather than 4 spices.
4 cups of Pumpkin pureed or 2 cans of pumpkin
1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups of brown sugar
1 Tbls of pumpkin pie spice
Mix all of the ingredients in a slow cooker/crock pot.
Cover and cook for 3 hours. Stir every 1/2 hour to hour. 
Cook until desired thickness. To test thickness, put a spoonful in a bowl to cool.
Transfer to jars and let cool. 
Refrigerate or freeze.
It is not recommended to can pumpkin butter.
