its only december 15th and we've been spoiled rotten!
yesterday we received a christmas package from auntie rik (she has our family for christmas this year) with strict instructions to OPEN the package upon arrival! we had no problems with that. (well, actually, the kids did have a problem waiting until chris got home. in fact ellie carried the box around all afternoon singing little ditties like, 'its wikki's birfday!". i dont know why she thought rikki would send us a gift on her birthday, but it was cute nonetheless.) so when chris got home from school, the kids each took turns opening one side of the box. inside was a treasure beyond measure
FUDGE! glorious, delicious FUDGE!
if you know my family at all, you know we LoVe fudge. in fact, id even venture to say that some of us are fudge connoisseurs. we enjoy fudge so much, that one year for our humungous browne family reunion with ALL the relatives, my mom arranged a fudge tour to visit all of the fudge shops in the tourist town of estes park, colorado to sample all the various fudges. that was the summer i went to college in 2003. its a summer i will never forget... for more reasons then just the fudge, i promise!
now, on to the fudge!
there are 5 varieties and chris carefully cut a little away from each flavor for us to sample. it was divine! and oh so soft! its from the fudge hut in washington. there is so much fudge we will have to have a fudge fest with mom & dad and bo & lari in the very near future because if anything is going to pack on the pounds over the next week or two, its a box o' fudge!
these pictures are not very focused (i was too busy drooling over the fudge to switch the lens), but you can still see the joy on the kiddos faces!
i think jack enjoyed the fudge the most. he even made up a dance for it. they both liked it so much in fact that when we put it away, this is what they looked like:
"why, WHY must you put away the fudge???"
thank you rikki for spoiling us in such a sweet delectable way! cant wait to see you in 9 days!
