Hello? Is this thing on? I haven’t blogged since earlier this week and I’m wondering if I’ll still know how to do it correctly. Since when did the holidays become busy times?
My reasons are many and varied, but I’ll let the pictures do most of the ‘splainin’. Don’t roll your eyes.
First of all, I wasn’t even at home. We were in Warm Springs, Georgia enjoying time with family, going through the Callaway Gardens Fantasy In Lights and eating fried candy bars…
It’s a Milky Way…or a Three Musketeers. I don’t really remember. I went into sugar shock almost immediately after this photo…or about ten minutes later after 95% of the thing was ingested. It’s a good thing too because I would have surely sunk into hypothermia had my blood sugar level not spiked, speeding up my heart rate and making me warmer (not really, but you get the idea). Here’s what it looked like inside
Y’all that is sweet, sugary goodness right there. I don’t want my candy bars any other way from now on. I need a Fry Daddy.
Then we got back home and I had to kick it into overdrive to make this:
It needed to match this:
The top dress is Ashlyn’s and the bottom Reagan’s. Reagan’s dress has her monogram across the bodice, maybe you can see it. It will have a belt made of Santa fur. Ashlyn’s won’t have a chance to be monogrammed as my machine broke last week and I can’t see a time in the near future (let’s see…four days) when I’m going to be able to drive it over two hours only to be forced to leave it for two weeks anyway. Don’t worry, the dresses will be put on live kids in the near future. And I will bore you with more photos.
Along with schooling, holiday get togethering, Christmas card addressing, toddler chasing, cleaning up after the toddler chasing…blogging just wasn’t happening. Thanks for understanding.

I am so impressed you made those… I seriously need to learn how to sew!!!
Oh my fried candy bar… Zach tells me about them at the MN state fair…. wow
Holy cow. I hope you brushed and flossed well after that candybar…talk about cavities 🙂
WOW!! busy gal but still plenty of time for a sugar fix huh?–the kicker HAS to be all that powdered sugar on top (musta needed something a little extra?–how could you refrain from binging on salt after?)
The dresses are really nice-I find the use of the term “Santa fur” a bit disturbing though!
all your cute girls in warm coats and talk of frigid weather-when you are pictured in shirt sleeves….not EVEN going there–anything ABOVE zero is positively balmy girl! LOL
Ooooh!!! I SO want one of those fried chocolate bars! YUM! Oh, and you seriously made those dresses? I am very impressed! So pretty! Wish I had that talent!
dandelionmom’s comment about “Santa fur” put me in stitches. I got this instant, awful picture of Du field-dressing Santa, rendering him furless and millions of kids bawling their heads off.
The dresses look very nice – great job!
O.M.G. That candy bar looks like heaven on a stick! I must have one! Something tells me that they don’t make them at the Mall Food Court. Don’t worry – the Holiday’s will be over before you know it, and hopefully life will slow down a bit for you in the new year.
WOW! That was some treat. I think I need a coupla those. 🙂
I can’t decide which is more darling — those two girls in the first photos or the little dresses you made ’em.
I’ve heard of those fried candy bars but never had one. I’ve always said that frying only makes things better, it sounds like that is true in this case.
Wow…now, I’ve heard of fried ice cream, but never a fried candy bar. Did you try some Pop’rs on it?
Ever had a fried Snickers? It is BLISS. Fried bliss, I tell you. Oh, and fried Oreos. My stars, I felt diabetes kick in just now.
Love their dresses. Take pictures of the girls wearing them, please.
p.s. Your Christmas card photo? DANG! Scott was all, “Whoa–she looks like Barbie!” He’s liking your blonder hair!
Okay… how come I’m from the south and I’ve never had a fried candy bar? I’m so jealous!!
Merry Christmas and Feliz Navidad from Colombia!
I think I got a cavity just from looking at that candy bar! 🙂 But seriously, I just got a Fry Daddy, and I’ve been tempted to fry up a candy bar…haven’t done it yet, but i will!
Those dresses are just darling!! And, really, you can’t go wrong with anything fried… chocolatey gooiness on the inside is just bonus!!
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with the family!!
oh yum…that fried candy bar looks good….and I love the dresses…good job on getting it done! 🙂
