Christmas Candy...

Every year we have a tradition of making Christmas candy at Grandma Raber's as a family. Today was that day - and I'm still on a sugar high:) I'm usually in bed by 9 p.m., but it's 11 p.m. and I'm still going strong. I wanted to share a few of the pictures we took today -these are such priceless memories and I hope Max always remembers that close family bond we all felt today!

Here is Max helping his great-grandma...
Logan and Max - look at the difference in size:)
Grandpa and Grandma GG
Clay working on the caramels
Here is the finished product...yummmmm!!!!!

It all look so yummy Abbie! I love the picture of Clay cutting the caramels. I tried to make caramels a couple of weeks ago for Brian and I ended up having to throw away the pot and the dish because the caramels were HARD as a rock! There must be a secret to making such a delicious candy :)

You should frame the shot with Max and his Grandma. That's an amazing shot.
