Making Sweets with my Mom

I took last Tuesday off work to stay home and make treats with my mom. It was so much fun! My Dad washed dishes as we dirtied them.
We (my mom) made 5 different kinds of fudge: White Chocolate candy cane, chocolate, chocolate walnut, peanut butter and Rocky Road. I made 3 different kinds of caramels: Plain, pecan and RASPBERRY! Then I made about a million sugar cookies and Toffee(which I re-made over the weekend and it turned out much better than the first attempt). Then we wrapped them up and delivered them to my neighbors! I sure hope they enjoyed them!

The finished Sweets!

Kitty loves Christmas!

Christmas is our kitty's favorite! She's been a spastic, crazy freak cat! She loves all the lights, bells, garland. She's so cute, if you don't think so then we can't be friends anymore...j/k, but really...don't hate!

Just another cute picture. She sleeps right on our cable box because it's nice and warm.....and probably full of cat hair!

Thanksgiving 2011

Thanksgiving came and went....almost a month ago! Sheesh, I'm bad at updating this blog.
This year I got to do Thanksgiving with my parents. We also had over, Ken (Justin's Dad) and Ann, My aunt, uncle and 2 second cousins that were in town for the holiday. It was a nice and peaceful day. All the food turned out fantastic! I was so grateful to have my mother with me to help with the cooking, she did so much! I think my Mom and I work really well in the kitchen together. This was the first year that I have tackled the entire meal and I was surprised at how smooth it went.

I have so much to be thankful for this year.

Note- the only pictures I had were taken from my cell and did not turn out well. They were so bad that I'm sure the people in them will appreciate me NOT posting them.
