Steven and I have a running joke that whenever we go to my parents we ALWAYS come home with more than what we went with. Not that we mind it, it's just the truth! Well yesterday, Steven went to the John 3:16 Conference and he spent the night at my parents. When he came home this evening, he was bearing many gifts!!! There was some goodies for the kids but what I really wanted to show is the goodies my mom sent for ME!!!
My care package included Dark Chocolate frappuchinos, Peppermint-Dark Chocolate frappuchinos, Starbucks dark chocolate truffles, Lindt dark chocolate truffles (notice a trend here) and because I'm all about eating healthy, a bag of roasted almonds. Now you may be wondering about the almond bark and sprinkles, no it's not a strange pregnancy craving. Last week at the reunion, someone made 'oreo balls'. They were soooo good, so my mom asked for the recipe. When she was telling it to me on the phone the other day, I told her that I thought they would make great teacher's gifts. (I love giving homemade treats.) I mentioned that they would be so pretty if you sprinkled them with red and green sprinkles. So look what she did! Now all I need to get is the Oreos and cream cheese!
Thank you Mom for all the goodies and for the clothes you sent the kids!
