Christmas Candy and Cookies


Growing up my family lived with my grandparents. One of the many blessing that came from this was spending lots of time with my Grandma Withers. She past away about 9 years ago but our family still carries on her tradition of making Christmas candy. When I was young it was a month long thing but now that we are older, grown up and busier we do it all in one day. This year we made lots of yummy treats but I was terrible about taking pictures. Here are just a few that I took. Ethan, Jared and our friend Chad are dipping marshmallow in chocolate. One of Ethan's favorite treats.

We also had our own little Christmas goody making nights. Here are a few pictures of Ethan "helping."

Cute! Ethan is such a good cooker! I took tons of pictures on MOM'S camera. We should still it and make a copy!

I think this all looks so fun! Is there any way you could e-mail me the instructions for the chocolate covered marshmellows? It looks simple, but I'm sure to mess something up. =) It just looks like something that Sophie could have a lot of fun with! frenchfryqueen@hotmail.com Thanks Shantell! I hope you guys are doing great! (and no hurry on this, it's just if you get time and are thinking about it)
