Photos: Christmas Candy Stockings

 Every year my wife, my mother, and I will all have a candy exchange through the stockings. You can tell that Daisy loves candy. 

I think my mother loves that she was invited to do this with us. Pro-tip to others, if your family members live five miles away, but don't invite you (or constantly dodge your invitations) you might want to reexamine why. For example, if Daisy's mom was there that day, she would tell Daisy that she eats too much candy and she'll be fat. Don't you love that kind of positive encouragement?  
I'm not too big into candy anymore, I actually only ate a tiny bit of this so far.

  1. Daisy's mother is sensible.
    Candy is fattening and bad for the teeth!

  4. Daisy's mum might be right for Daisy, not everyone who eats that stuff gets fat - it's sometimes ones nature.
    I'm not a sweet tooth.

  5. We used to inundate the stockings with chocolate. Over the years I've cut back but the HH still loads mine down:)

  6. PS Chocolate may not be healthy for you, but I see nothing wrong with indulging on special occasions.

  7. Daisy from all accounts enjoys all food. It appears she does not gain weight from it. She is very fortunate. I got way too many sweets for the holidays as well.

  9. Now that's my kind of exchange! All things in moderation and one won't get fat. Daisy's mom should mind her own business.

  11. I'm glad that you all had such fun for Christmas. Such comments by a mother can really hurt and are hard to dismiss or forget. Candy is fun to enjoy in moderation on special occasions.
