Christmas Eve Memories

Every Christmas Eve the kids get to open one present. This year it was the present from Robin's parents. Here they are sporting their nerf guns and nerf "armor"! ;)

We spent quite a bit of time making chocolate covered pretzels, marshmellows and strawberries. The smart idea I had was to use a stainless steel bowl in a pan to make a double boiler. The truly dumb idea I had was to leave the stems on the strawberry to give us something to grab onto as we dipped the strawberries in the chocolate. That was fine until some of the stems end up UNDER the chocolate and then you end up with stems in your mouth! EWWWW!! Did we still eat them, you might ask? Well, they were covered in CHOCOLATE so OF COURSE we did!! HAHAHA!!
