Mmmm... Resse's Peanut Butter Cups! Are they the ones made with Splenda? Be careful, don't eat too many, they're not as perfect as they seem. I used to love them, until I ate too many and had serious bowel troubles as a result. Apparently, they're not mean to be consumed in large quantities. Who knew?

I love Antiques Roadshow! :) I Agree with you on the Peanut Butter cups. We used to make them growing up. Mom and us girls had a splendid day making chocolates. I wish I had her molds and recipes. Somehow the holidays just aren't the same. :)

Have a great visit with your mom and dad.

Wow Jamie, you've been up to some fun activites. I love your new blog background, and I love that we have a lot of the same interests, except for will power, you seem to have loads more than I do. Anyway, the Oregon reunion fell through because summer is just too busy. We should really try it again since there seems to be a lot of interest. It would be fun to get together sans kids for lunch, but I'm also game for doing a kid friendly activity as well. Let me know if you have any good ideas. :)
