Twenty nine years ago today Mr. P had a big out of town hunting trip planned to celebrate his birthday. He was so excited as he loves deer hunting. But that hunting trip was canceled. Our daughter Holly decided she was giving her daddy a big surprise and she was born on his birthday exactly 2 months to the day early. Yes, she was due on Dec. 26, thus the name Holly was chosen. She weighed in at 3lbs. 7 oz. and back then that was a tiny baby. Healthy from birth, she was in the hospital gaining weight and sleeping until we got to bring her home one month later on Thanksgiving Day at 3 lbs. 15 1/2 oz. They doctor had thought she would have gained to 4 lbs. thus he was letting her come home. Yes, that first few months was scarey but we were so blessed.
Holly, you are the best daughter a parent could possibly wish for.You are my best friend, a wonderful wife and a great mother to Darbee Rae. You are the voice to my phone calls, my side kick when we shop,the ear when I complain,and the hug when I need one. Happy Birthday and we love you.
And I can't say enough about Mr. P. He is a wonderful companion, friend, father and grandfather. I am so blessed and thankful God has let us enjoy all these years together. There have been many birthdays since the day Holly was born, but he would have to say that was the very best gift ever. Happy Birthday Mr. P. Love you too.
Now, all that said Halloween activities are going on everywhere this weekend. And we all know candy corn and Halloween go hand in hand. This is a very simple recipe and if you love butterfinger candy bars ,, then this is the recipe for you. You will need candy corn.
Smooth peanut butter
semi-sweet or milk chocolate baking chips or chocolate candy coating
When using the chips, I add 3/4 block parifn wax to my chocolate as it melts in a double boiler. This assures it setting up perfect. Do not use if you choose candy coating.
16 oz. candy corn
16 oz peanut butter
16 oz chips, or candy coating
If you don't want to dip, you can melt the chips and pour over the candy in the pan and cut into squares. These are rich so I cut mine into little pieces and it makes it easier to dip.
Hoping all of you have had a great week, and now we are looking forward to the weekend. The weather had warmed up here this week, but another cool spell is heading our way for the weekend. Great crockpot soup weather. Can't wait!!
Until we talk again.......
