My daughter, son-in-law, grandson, and husband all watched on as I started…

    Rocky Road Candy

    Rocky Road Candy is loaded with chocolate, peanut butter, marshmallows, and peanuts. What could be better than that? This recipe has been passed down through the generations of our family. Rocky Road Candy is the thing that all of my grown children beg for me to send to them for Christmas. It really is addictive Ha!

    The Christmas Truce

    The Christmas Truce is a touching story about how even enemies can put down their arms and share peace together, even if just for a short time. This is the perfect story for Christmas.

This year, my daughter and grandson are in North Carolina so my mind has been working overtime to make this the best Christmas ever. My grandson, Brandon, is going to be 8 in December. He loves cars, trucks, and trains just like most little boys. Something else that he finds joy in books! He and I would get in our jammies after his bath, pop a bowl of popcorn and cuddle up under a blanket in the recliner with a good book.
