For Halloween James and I made Caramel Apples for our FRG to sell at the Halloween Festival on base. (FRG is Family Readiness Group - all units have one to help deciminate information and if someone needs help while a spouse is deployed etc.) I had Caleb take pictures for me - I meant to get some better ones but I forgot to. They looked nice but they were a pain in the patooty to do.
First the caramel wouldn't stick. Then the toppings we put on were pulling off the caramel. It was so frustrating but we ultimately got them done and they were pretty. They were decorated with sprinkles, pecans and chocolate swirls.
I think next time I will volunteer to do just the pretty packaging or pretty cupcakes.
I have been married to my best friend, James for over 20 years. I feel so entirely blessed to be his wife and the mother of his children. We have two wonderfully sweet boys. They are growing so fast and keep us on our toes. I love to scrapbook, stamp cards and gifts, cook and bake. I really like to pamper my guys. And I would love to some day live a sustainable life style on our own homestead. Cows, chickens, goats, OH MY. A garden with tomatoes, potatoes, and peppers and more. Oh, the dreams I have...
For now, I enjoy crafting my "art" out and reading aloud to all three guys. I so enjoy spending time with my family.
