Making candy...

Traditionally, the family gets together once every Christmas season to make candy and cookies.  We haven't been able to get together for candy making for the past two years because one year the family went to Colorado for the holidays and last year Scott was deployed to Iraq. So, last weekend Leslie, Scott, and I spent some time in the kitchen. 
On the list of goodies we included Rocky Road, Peanut Butter Balls, Turtles, Buttermilk Candy, Oreo Truffles, Snowballs, Jam Thumbprints, Peanut Blossoms, Seven Layer Bars and Neimann Marcus Cookies.
 Sadly, not everyone was able to be there.  Becca and Seth were both home sick with the flu and didn't feel up to cooking.  Ron was in Indiana on business.   And G and Ryan were on babysitting duty.

By the end of the weekend, we had lots and lots of yummy goodies to eat and threw the diet out the window!

Yum Yum. I am so jealous. I haven't make one cookie or one piece of candy this year. We are dieting up to Christmas day and then I hope to make up for these three weeks of being deprived.
