Holiday Tradition: Making Goodies for Gifting
Every year we bake cookies or buy candies for friends and coworkers. This year, the girls and dad decided to make Hawaiian Chex Mix.
Here they are baking ... recipe included below!
Once they were all done and cooled, Lena bagged them while Kaila put on the personalized bag toppers. Such a hardworking family are we ...
... and then at the end, the crumbs were enjoyed by all!
Try making some of your own at home!
