Egg Nog Upside Down French Toast

A month ago I was browsing down the aisles at one of my favorite grocery stores 
when a sweet lady offered my son and I a sample of Egg nog and
this amazing Egg nog French Toast recipe.
She raved about it and I promised her I would make it.
Oh I am so glad I did.

It's way too good not to share and 
I know we will be making it at least every Christmas season!

Advent Calendar!!

It's done!!
I am finally done with my Advent Calendar and seriously- just in the nick of time!
I sewed my last ornament last night and couldn't be happier with how it turned out!!


Here are a couple of my favs
Angel (inspired by an angel ornament we had on our tree growing up)

Ok I really love them all

 I had a hard time making my ornaments small so if there is a next time making one of these- I will make my tree a bit bigger- but overall- it works!!
It took A LOT of time and work, but I am so glad I did it and think it will make many fun Christmas memories for my children!
Thanks again Jill for the great idea!!
