The middle two from today’s post by Amy over on Kiddley. These are unbelievably easy, kid/toddler-friendly and so stinkin’ good. We tried a variety of combinations–rolos and peanuts, rolos and almonds, dark chocolate with peanuts and milk chocolate with with peanuts. I HIGHLY recommend using rolos–they are far superior to my taste buds.
We’re busy doing last minute things today before we head to western maryland tomorrow morning. We’ll be doing an early Christmas with my family, and then heading home so we can wake up in our own beds Christmas morn.
Dan is home sick from work today, but recovering pretty quickly. He tried to go in, but they’ve banished him and his germs from the office. He works for an amazing agriculture company in Delaware that really gets in the Christmas spirit. Almost daily, he comes home with a new treat–from a giant box of citrus and pears, to a knife set for the wives, or a batch of home baked bread. Today he missed out on the two-dozen cookies waiting for each person in the office. I’m tempted to still send him in–although I think we made up for it in our own little kitchen this morning.
Still on the list is packing, preparing luminaries for my grandmother who lights the drive up to the house on Christmas Eve–"to light the way for the Christ Child", finish laundry and embellish ONE.MORE.THING. Oh, and there’s that secret project I’m working on, but because my sister reads this blog, it will all have to wait. I should probably be a little more tense about all there is to do, but I’m feeling that warm goodness of the approaching celebration.
Be Well All.
