Making Goodies

So Monday night was spent in the kitchen with mom and Austin. I wanted to make some little boxes of goodies for my co workers. Here's me and mom working on the peanut butter fudge. Fudge is a two man job if you ask me! I put the fudge in my pretty cobalt blue pyrex dish and put it in the fridge to cool. Later when I opened the fridge the glass dish flew out and smashed to the floor. It was such a loud crash and the dish broke in a million tiny fragments. So much for the fudge............
On to peanut butter balls. Austin begins the dipping processMom joins in.I also tried to make homemade peppermint patties and they failed. I am not sure why because I have made them before. Mom just does not understand why I always try new stuff at such a busy time. I am brave like that! I did try this new cookie. It is made with fresh peaches and sprinkled on top with cinnamon in sugar. Everyone really loved them. I also made chocolate covered pretzels with colored sprinkles. See these little containers I got to put the goodies in. Aren't they just cute.

Wish I could send all of you some homemade goodies! We were back in the kitchen last night making cookies for our Christmas day get together and we will be busy in the kitchen today.....once again I am trying something new........hmm..............wonder how this will turn out!

ps I got word yesterday that a dear, sweet couple that I know from the church I used to attend were driving to visit family on Monday night and were hit by a drunk driver. Thank God they are both alive, but she has broken her back and has no feeling. They will try to operate on her today. He has injuries too and is hospitalized. This is the sweetest couple I know. They treated me like family and she gave me a hug every Sunday morning. Please take a moment and say a prayer for them. They are Harold and Bobby White.

Be careful!!!! Bad things come in threes. Look both ways when you cross the road.

I really hope that your friend will get over this terrible accident. I can't pray, but I'll wish HARD for the 'no feeling' to just be related to shock or something.

Merry Christmas! Ours was lovely.

Oh my goodness, what tragic sad news. It is so scary. I just prayed for them and I will keep them in my prayers. How horrible.

Your baking time looked like such fun! Christmas is so awesome!

Hugs, Sharon

I wish that I had seen your post before last night. I tried to melt my almond bark and had a horrible time of it. The crock pot idea would have been SO helpful. Everything looks very good.
