The girls and me - VERY bad hair day for me.
Also included in the night of entertainment was a silent auction. My mom Sara threw together a few beautiful baskets, and I contributed my infamous caramels. Typically a once-a-year holiday favorite, I obliged to Julie's - the owner of Color Me Mine - request. Caramels, though they are delicious, certainly are not my favorite to make. They are quite labor-intensive, involving lots of stirring.
The first year I made them I ate an unimaginable amount. My caramels have just never tasted the same to me after that year. The following few years I wasn't able to eat any, having OD-ed on them the first year. They are everyone else's favorites, though, and make excellent holiday gifts!
They were auctioned off at $30 - craziness! I was worried I would get one lame bidder.
