Candy Candy Everywhere

OK - so no candy of the month for December - that is to say - no candy of the month for the CLUB - I, on the other hand, have eaten PLENTY of this candy this month and am still up at midnight making more for gifts!

I am sure there are many others up at this late hour, fixing bows onto packages, preparing food for family gatherings and cleaning the house for company - this month really sneaks up on us doesn't it.

We decided to have a handmade Christmas - with a Pajama gift swap for the adults (not handmade - thankfully) - and you would think that this would have alleviated the stress BUT..... I always think up things that are bigger than life, and I have spent the last week finishing up multiple projects... painting, sewing, cutting, gluing and glittering all manner of gifty things.

I have also spent some serious time in the kitchen making honeycomb, penuche fudge, coconut layer bars, a cake for my sons 3rd birthday, gingerbread and spice cookies, chocolate dipped rice crispies for my husbands office and some really weird applesauce Cinnamon dough ornaments that did NOT meet expectations.

Well, I am looking forward to next year, but for now - I am going to stop the madness, slowdown and really enjoy this beautiful Christmas with my family - which is now a family of four for the first time ever!.

I wish everyone a very merry Christmas!

love and chocolate kisses from Sweet B
