Peanut Butter Balls

Last night I went to my parents house for dinner. My mom has a rotisserie and cooks the best chickens!

We had chicken, homemade mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans and rolls.

I made a blueberry cobbler for dessert. It was amazing. I can’t take 100% credit for it since it wasn’t completely homemade. I used Louisiana Cobbler mix and a can of Comstolk blueberry pie filling. It turned out so good though! I will definitely be using this cobbler crust mix again.

My parent’s Christmas tree has shrunk over the years but it still has my favorite ornaments on it. After dinner we all grabbed a comfy seat in the living room and watched It’s a Wonderful Life.

This morning we got up and went to our church for a Christmas service and communion.

After church this morning we went back to my parent’s and ate leftovers from last night’s dinner. My mom worked on a scarf while I made some of my very favorite Christmas candy, Peanut Butter Balls. We have had these every year at Christmas since before I can remember. They are amazing!
