Candy Mice

Saturday my family held our annual candy making and cookie decorating party.
We had extra cousins this year since my cousin was in town from Dallas, so my mom's side of the family was at the party this year.
We made cracker candy and turtles.
We had chocolate covered pretzels, marshmallows, peppermints.
Really, if it was standing still it was covered in white or chocolate almond bark.
And it was delicious.

We decorated cookies.
We decorated mallows.

We made some mice.
And...shhh...even had a real mouse at the party.
It was seen pre and post party, but not during party.
I bet it's little mouth was just watering looking at all of the crumbs on the floor.
Really, our cats are jerks.
A house full of them and a mouse is scurrying around.

Yesterday I made these chocolate crackle cookies.

Today I made these two brownie pecan pies.

I want to marry that one in the back.


And I just finished baking some cheddar buttermilk biscuits for breakfast tomorrow morning.
Put one on a plate with a slice of leftover Christmas ham.
I'm sure Chad will make some sort of eggy sauce to go over it all.
Drool some more.

Hug the kids extra hard tomorrow.
I didn't spoil mine this year with stuff.

Just enough toys and they will get lots of kisses tomorrow.
And every day after.
That's what they really want.
Merry Christmas folks.



  1. Merry Christmas to you all. Enjoy the day.

  2. We are coming next year for cookie baking day if you can handle us.
