Holiday wishes

I just want to wish you all a happy Thanksgiving. I know we have much to be thankful for! We're thankful for our jobs, our health, or family and our friends. I am especially grateful for my husband. He is an awesome man, and I couldn't be any luckier. He's always willing to help, and is willing to watch an occasional "chick-flick" with me. I look around and see people so much worse off than me and it makes me grateful for the little things in life. I'm even grateful for my challenges and trials that I have been given. I know they are for me and I gladly accepted them before I came to earth. We can do anything as long as we keep near to the Lord. I love Thanksgiving! Have a happy one!

Brother and sister?

So I've heard that as a couples get older they look more and more alike. We're not that old yet! However, it makes for a funny story. Please read on: We were just standing there, at the grocery store check-out line, waiting for our stuff to get rung up when the cashier girl looked at us and asked if we were brother and sister. WHAT ??I kind of laughed and said "Actually we are husband and wife." I then said " I haven't heard that since High School." The cashier looked up at us again and was saying how awesome it was that we knew each other in High School. She kept going on and saying how she was a hopeless romantic. She told us we were cute. What do you say to that? Luckily our stuff was bagged at that moment so we could be on our merry little way. We laughed about that for awhile. I told Jeff that our kids are bound for destruction with brown eyes and brown hair. He laughed and agreed with me. We don't look that much alike, do we?

Forget the icecream!

I know what you're all thinking.....Boy, she really stinks at blogging, but don't fret! We haven't died yet! We've been really busy (just not with anything exciting), and I just don't know what to blog about..................UNTIL NOW! By looking at this pic you can probably guess what the C house has on the brain............................................ Yummy, scrumpdiddilyumpsious (?) CHOCOLATE! We spent all last weekend prepping and then dipping about 50 pounds of chocolate. Forget the icecream, ice cubes, juices, chicken or any frozen food for that matter. The Chocolates have taken over the freezer. Who needs to make dinner, right? Just have some homemade chocolates! We made all the ooey,gooey centers one day and then dipped them ALL a couple of days later! It took us from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. last Saturday to dip them all and let them set. Let me reassure you.... it was worth every minute! My dad-in-law makes a melt in your mouth caramel that is to die for! Just ask my hips, they'll testify for you! :) We split the goods between 3 families and we each took around 15 pounds of chocolates home. We've got the sweets covered in our food storage, so if a disaster strikes, just come find us for your sugar fix. We've got you covered (anything for a small fee, right?). We have chocolate filling our freezer with little wiggle room for the real food, but hey, it's once a year. That's what I say. Thanks Mom and Dad M for teaching us how to make chocolates. We look forward to next year!!!!(wink, wink)

Our candy guinea pigs (adrienne, and Camille) haven't died yet, so I'm guessing we passed the chocolate-making test. I love this episode of I love Lucy, so I had to post the pic. Funny, funny! Chocolate, chocolate, everywhere! Do you know any good holiday treat/candy recipes? I'd love to hear!
