If you’ve got an Xbox One and are looking for a high energy racing game then the Forza Motorsport 5 is out just in time for the holidays and boy do I have a great deal for you! If you head to Walmart and grab the game for around $60 plus pick up a bag of M&M’s, then you can submit your receipt and get a $10 Walmart ecard back! That’s like getting the M&M’s for free and getting a little money back! Plus how fun a gift when you pair a fun video game like Forza Motorsport 5 with a bag of snacks to munch on. Yuppers, you can cross of another gift from your list with this deal so we headed to Walmart to check it out.
All their Xbox One games are about the same price so to get some money back is a nice bonus and if you’re looking for the best deal on the Xbox One Forza Motorsport Game, this is the best deal I’ve seen!
Our church does a gift giving program so I decided that this would reallllly make some little boy’s day if we gifted this to him. Normally I wouldn’t get something quite as expensive for the angel tree but I know this will keep him occupied for hours and really bless his socks off! Many churches do Angel Trees for needy kids or kids in difficult situations and we love participating as it’s a great way to show our own kids about giving back and others in need.
We picked out children around our children’s age so we could ask them what they’d like to give. Then we simply grab a gift, wrap it and ask Isaac and Chase to take to church and put by the tree.

After purchasing the game and the M&M’s I simply had to take a photo of the receipt at home and text it to get my $10 Walmart ecard and it literally took about 30 seconds.

Rudolph Peanut Butter Cookies
It’s that time of year where I’m not only thinking gifts but I’ve got visions of sugar plums dancing in my head….or at least visions of cookies and one that is hands down my Husband’s favorite is the Peanut Butter cookie. I recently saw a peanut butter cookie on Pinterest that had been decorated like Rudolph and I thought it was super cute and fun for an upcoming cookie swap I have. Plus I thought it would be cute to give cookies with this Forza 5 Motorsport game as well as the M&Ms so I made a batch of Rudolph Peanut Butter Cookies.
When the folks at Mars invented M&M’s I wonder if they knew how awesome those little candies would be to produce all kinds of cookie treats?! One of my other favorite cookies is a simple round pretzel with a piece of chocolate and Christmas M&M in: Easy Pretzel M&M Bites.
