Christmas Delights

I can't remember a year that we didn't have fudge at Christmas, it is almost as expected as the Christmas tree. Along with the traditional chocolate fudge, this year I made eggnog fudge that was delicious! Oddly enough none of my kids care much for desserts... I know strange, but true. Now don't think they don't consume junk food, or anything with sugar, pie, cake, fudge... nope they rarely will try it... I know I'm a terrible mother, kids that don't like dessert?? This might be because they don't care about eating when they aren't hungry... And dessert follows a meal?? They when they are hungry they want real food, not something sweet.

I love nothing more than having all the boys home at the same time. As fun as it was having little ones, it was everyone home everyday. Now that they are grown, it is so special having them all home at the same time. It is fun for Sam to have some one to "play" with, and what a big help I find all their free advise on parenting...

I am constantly amazed how I don't realize many of life's truths until I experience them for myself. Who would have thought that a mother would love their great big babies with the same fervency and devotion as when they were tiny little babies?? That is what makes the holidays happy times, for this mom. This is where I would put that wonderful picture of the 4 sweet babies if only I had one ... unfortunately another one of life's truth, even grown they won't always cooperate...

I'm hoping you had a wonderful Christmas and the very best new year ever!


  1. Merry Christmas! Sounds like you and your family had a wonderful day.
    I would like to have your recipe for Eggnog fudge.

    It was so nice to get to meet you this year. I hope the new year brings more events to attend together.

  2. Sounds like a wonderful Christmas, Joy! I know what you mean about the love of your sons when they are adults... same kind of love. (I don't think they'll "get" that until they have kids of their own grown up). I'm sure mine don't
