Early Christmas & GIVEAWAY


Thanks to everyone that linked to the Open House party last week.  My laptop was
in the shop all week but I was able to sneak a peek at your
links on my daughter-in-laws ipad.

We got back from our vacation last night and we had a fun early Christmas with our family.
One of the highlights of the trip was Family Night at a chocolate shop to make our own chocolate
candy...total of four pounds worth!   I LOVE chocolate but after all the sampling I don't think I 
will want it again for a really long time.

Steve & I with our granddaughter Sadie.  At this point we were in chocolate
overload and I was not feeling so well.  That should teach me that there is a limit
on the amount of chocolate any one person should eat. 

Just a reminder...

The giveaway for the framed intaglios ends on 12/21.  There is still time to enter HERE.



The Open House party starts tomorrow evening and  I hope to see you there.

Take care,

Hugs,
Sherry

Hope you're feeling better now from your chocolate overload. I've gorged more than I care to recall on chocolate and other goodies.

Happy Holidays!

Cheers,

Sherry, I know JUST what you mean about an overload! When our daughter gopt married we went to the bakery and they brought out trays of EVERY kind of cake they make! It was a sickening sugar overload, LOL!!!! The look on your grandaughters face though says SHE was having a BLAST!! XO, Pinky

Sherry,
This does sound a lot of fun, but I'm sure that I would have been feeling a tad bit sick too.

Blesings,

I love chocolate. I bet that was fun making your own. So, I guess noone should give you chocolate over the holidays huh? Sorry to hear it was a little too rich for you. At least you made some good memories though.

I love chocolate and what a fun activity, to make your own!! A real live chocolate factory? They would have to kick me out!

Alison @ The Polohouse said...

What a great idea and what a fun memory for all of you!

At first glance I thought you were making chocolate intaglios!
Hmmmm.... now there's an idea for a business?!!!

I have often wondered if I could get to a point where too much chocolate would make me stop eating it.
Have yet to get to that point unfortunately for me.....!
LOL

Merry Christmas!!
