I've been busy. For a day and a half now I've been making chocolate suckers for the Holiday Party at Boog's school tomorrow. I was fortunate to receive money from most of the parents to go towards the snacks, gifts for the teachers, and goodie bags (which I'm not doing). My neighbor was not so lucky. I also have a co-room parent who is helping and bringing a craft for the kids to do. My poor neighbor has received no money, no one has volunteered to help, and she has 6 more students than I do...ouch, so we made a trade. She was kind enough to make candles for the teacher's gifts, she makes soy candles and in wonderful scents. I will make suckers for her class as well.
The suckers are what we are giving in place of a goodie bag. The teachers sent a note saying we were doing goodie bags, but I personally do not want any more dollar store crap at my house, so the kids will each get 3 suckers, and a craft to take home.
Here is what one sucker looks like:
