The Perfect Solution

With neighbor gifts starting to roll into our residence (Thanks to all our sweet friends!) I have been trying to think up our own bit of "Christmas Cheer" to hand around this year. I have been crazy busy, and still not feeling great. Little miss/mr. Linderman has gotten big enough to locate and sit on my sciatic nerve over the last two weeks. This is not a pleasant feeling, and according to the doctor it isn't one I can do much about either. Oh well. So for these reasons I keep trying to explain to my husband that I am not going to be a doing a mad baking session of goodies that he gets to sample and try before they are delivered. I settled on the idea of making these funny little candy mice and taking plates around that quote, "On the night before Christmas, all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse." While explaining this idea to Trev last night the following conversation ensued:

Me: So that is what I'll be making.

Trev: What about making that fudge you make that has one layer of chocolate fudge, then one layer of peanut butter fudge and then is topped with crushed pecans and Carmel?

Me: That is way more work than the candy mice.

Trev: If I were getting a neighbor present I would rather have the fudge than the mice.

Me: You aren't getting a neighbor present. They are for the neighbors.

Trev: Oh. {moment of silence} I know then, how about you make the mice and the fudge and then I eat the fudge while you deliver the mice?

I laughed. But I have been thinking of the conversation since. And I just might duck out of the office a wee bit early today, to go home and make my sweetheart some fudge... :)
