YUMMMMM!!!!

It has been a while since I last posted and I have had so many things I have wanted to blog but I just can't seem to make the time. So here is my attempt to start blogging again.

About a week and a half ago Denisa taught the Relief Society how to make Carmel apples. Then yesterday we had her come to Young Women's and do it again. We had a wonderful time with the girls.

Well... I decided that for a family activity I wanted to make some. So as soon as the kids arrived home from school we went right to work. Since my hands were busy with the Carmel the camera didn't come out until we were just about done.Now if you know the Hurley family at all, you will know that any messy family activity like this must be made into an even bigger mess before we are truly done. (A favorite of ours is the whipped cream squirted in the mouth. We have lots of pictures of this.) Well since we were adding melted chocolate to our already too sweet apples we decided that everyone should have a little squirted into their mouths, except Mommy of course. As you can see Donovan LOVES this activity. The giggling was almost too much for me. Half way through Brian said we should have gotten out the video camera.And Brian still managed to get me with the white chocolate.
We used walnuts, Heath bits, mini M&M's, chopped up Reeses, and we even tried Nerds. (We'll let you know how that one tastes, I'm not too sure about it.) We drizzled milk and white chocolate. They look so yummy and I can't wait to have some, after supper of course.

Too funny! Emily and I bought the stuff to make caramel apples on Tuesday, we just haven't gotten to it yet. Also, I haven't checked anyone's blogs for forever so I didn't even know you hadn't posted. They say great minds think alike. Lolmutoga

Those do look very yummy! I don't think I am daring enough to make them yet.

Oh, yum! Maybe I should do that as an activity with my students. Or maybe not. Do I really want a classroom full of middle-schoolers hyped up on sugar??? Oh the drama that would ensue...

Those look so yummy!! It also looks like you all had a blast making them. I don't think Jamie could have handled it, but Jordan sure would dive into an activity like that!

Melissa, I know this entry was written back in October, but I just found you. I think of you so often. I am grateful for your example of strength. There's a billboard here that has a picture of a little blond girl in a pink princess dress and a crown as well and driving from a distance she looks like your Savannah-it catches me off guard every time. Just wanted to let you know I think of you and your family often.
