...chocolate cover pretzel making (I swear we didn't intend for them to come out looking like they would glow if we held a black light over them)...
...final gift creating (more on the latter after I give it to my parents)...
...and emails about SALE PENDING! Yes, that means our offer on a house has been accepted, signed, and sent to all those wonderful people that help us through the tedious part of this process. Says our realtor: "Rick, how will you ever top this Christmas gift for Erin ever again?!" We are now 60+ days away (God willing!) from being the official owners of an amazing old house that is near our families, has enough room for several sets of twins (hi Mom), and needs some decorating TLC...which is exactly what we wanted!
This chocolate to drizzle over our chocolate-covered pretzels, however, is not exactly what we wanted:
Not sure what happened, but for some reason the food coloring made the chocolate really thick and non-drizzlable. So, I had the brilliant idea of adding milk, thinking it would thin the chocolate out. Right?
Garbage can, meet our latest DIY disaster.
This is why I blog about crafting and not cooking.
We're praising the Lord for our marriage, our families, all of our many blessings, food on our table that looks nothing like that mess above, and the most perfect gift that He sent us so long ago. We're doing our best to keep Christ at the center of this Christmas season, as we do in every season!
