Autumn and Thanksgiving 2015

Here are some product that we have in the store to get you ready for this season of thanksgiving and this autumn weather.

The Oak Inside The Acorn by Max Lucado

It was hard for Little Acorn to believe he would ever be a big, strong oak tree.

Soon Little Acorn grew into Little Oak. But now what was he to do? He couldn’t grow oranges like the orange tree or flowers like the rose bush. He just grew and grew until he became Big Oak, and his branches were big and strong-but still he didn’t know what he was to do. Then one day Big Oak found that his strong branches were just right for a very special purpose. The Oak Inside the Acorn is the story of the miracle inside each of us. For within every child is the special person God created, just waiting to grow.

Promised Land Game

This is a fast passed themed action game of the Book of Mormon. Players use items like, the Brass Plates, tree of Life or the Liahona to avoid consequences that come from false Traditions and Lamanite armies.

Thanksgiving Baking: Desserts!

Really starting to get into the holiday spirit? The Thanksgiving holiday spirit, that is 😉 We’ve got what you need to get started on your holiday baking for Thanksgiving next week!

Autumn Sprinkles

I love these sprinkles mixes! Growing up my mom had a different container of these sprinkles for each holiday, and they were always gone by the end of the season. They’re great because there’s a great variety of colored sugars, shapes, and classic “jimmies”. These are a great asset for any Autumn baker!

Pumpkin Pie Cheeseball and Dessert Mix

These mixes make the best holiday cheeseballs! Whip it up really fast and serve it with graham crackers, and you will be a hit. This yummy mix can also be used to make a super-quick and yummy pumpkin-flavored cheesecake!

Cookies, Cupcake-, and Cake-Decorating

We have some super cute cupcake, cookie, and cake decorating kits that are designed to help you make fun and darling Thanksgiving turkey cupcakes, cookies, or cakes! This is a great project that is great to keep kids occupied and “helping” with Thanksgiving preparations.

We also have some really cute baking cups that come in leaf-print, pumpkin-print, and solid fall colors.

Last but not least we have absolutely adorable Autumn cookie cutters! Our sets come with one leaf and one pumpkin, and they are even fall colors.

And that’s not all! If you’re interested in more of our Fall cooking lines, feel free to call or come in and ask an associate about the fun products we have. 🙂

Thanksgiving Books!

Sometimes we have a tendency to jump straight from Halloween to Christmas during this busy holiday season. But don’t worry, Thanksgiving, we didn’t forget you. Even though we’ve got our Christmas product out, don’t miss out on our super fun Thanksgiving books!

Thanksgiving at the Tappletons’ by Eileen Spinelli

You’re invited to Thanksgiving dinner with the Tappletons, the nicest family of wolves you’ll ever meet!

Mrs. Tappleton gets up early to prepare the turkey. Mr. Tappleton sets off to buy the pies. Kenny makes the salad, and Jenny mashes the potatoes. Then all the relatives arrive for an enormous Thanksgiving dinner.But this year nothing seems to go right. First the turkey slides down the icy hill and into the pond — “plop splash ” Then the bakery sells out of pies. It looks like it’s going to be a pretty bleak holiday…until Grandmother reminds everyone that there’s more to Thanksgiving than a turkey and trimmings.
