I have a little hobby on the side (when I’m not gardening or cooking).  I make scrapbooks. Yes, it’s probably a frivolous hobby. . . it can be kind of expensive and it’s time-intensive.

But, man, is it fun.  It’s like an excuse to revert to childhood and feel free to cut and paste like a madwoman.

So, this past weekend I attended a scrapbook “retreat”–it was just at the local mall, but it was two days of making scrapbooks with about 25 other women similarly afflicted.

While I was gone, Trevor apparently got a wild hair about preparing for Christmas. :)

I knew he was planning to make a couple of different flavors of hard candy–that’s something his mom always made for Christmas.

When I came home on Friday night he’d made lemon hard candy, peanut brittle, and fudge.

By the time I got home on Saturday he’d added butterscotch hard candy, peppermint hard candy, peanut butter fudge, and divinity to that lineup.

Here we come, sugar-coma. :)

    I still use your mom’s English Toffee recipe every Christmas. Everyone waits for me to make it!
