How much I LOVE candy

The last 3 parties I have gone to- or helped at- or been in charge of, there has been a candy bar. Let me tell you why... I just love candy. It is my favorite thing. It is my comfort "food". I thought it would be interesting to show these different candy bars and the awesome days that each represent. My wedding celebration was in October and the candy bar represents the falls colors. It also represents the thoughtfulness of my mom in putting it together for Troy & I. We get comments to this day of how over-the-top it really was. But the kids loved it. When I say kids I mean anyone from 20 to 70 years old.
The second candy bar was at my dear father's birthday party/open house celebrating his 60 years on this earth. It was in July and how awesome my mom was again for putting this together for our family & friends. The kid's loved it and I got a kick out of the little ones stuffing their faces with as much candy as they could.
The third candy bar was at my littlest sister’s open house/baby shower. Once again my mom rocks! I bet you can't guess what is she having based on the color of the candy. It was wonderful seeing all our family and friends at each one of these gatherings. I am reminded on a daily basis, how incredibly blessed I am having the people in my life. I am also very happy that I have a much larger family to call my own. The merger between Troy and I has been a wonderful thing.
In hindsight I think I love our candy bar the most. It was an amazing day that we were able to share with our family. I would change only a few things, but NOT the candy bar. It was perfect.
