Annual Candy Making Party

Last night we had our annual girl's night where we make our Christmas candy. Mostly we dip lots of stuff in chocolate and the divide it all up to take home to our families. YUM!

We had pizza for dinner, dipped chocolates, and practiced a song that we are performing together at our extended family Christmas party. I had a lot of fun!

Here are Cathy and Shauna studiously preparing their pretzels.

I don't think Teresa likes this activity very much. Don't fall asleep, Teresa! Sorry, she was not feeling very good, but came anyway. I'm glad she came anyway. :)

Don't leave a single drop!

These are some members of my family whom I dearly love. They are beautiful people inside.

Oh fine! I guess if I put in the goofy ones I also have to put in the nice ones. Here is the redeeming photo:

We all practiced our song. I think we all sound nice together. Hopefully it turns out well when we perform on Saturday.

The dividing of the chocolates!!!!

After this I was sent home to eat and eat and eat. I guess a bear needs some way to pack on the fat for winter. We ended up with chocolate-dipped pretzels, toasted coconut, toasted almonds. homemade dipped fondant, cherry chocolates, peanut brittle, and toffee. Thanks family!

What a great party! It looks like you had a blast. I love the pictures. Your sisters are just as goofy as you are! That's what makes your family great!

Thanks a lot! You made me cry. I miss my family so much. I see all the fun and everyone together and I really miss it and wish I was there.

I know what you mean, Cynthia. This was the first Christmas in a long time that I got to be a part of the fun, after all those years in Alaska. I look forward to seeing you after Christmas!

Thanks for the great pics, Renee'. That was a fun party (and yummy too).

I remember the moment of the "dividing chocolates" picture. I believe Shauna was saying, "Paige!! Do not eat the chocolates until they are all divided!!" Very funny that moment was captured.
