I wanted to share with you, a little about the kids excitement. I had ordered a box of Chocolates, from Vermont Nut free. If you have not tried these, I would recommend giving them a shot. The chocolate covered pretzels, are delicious.
This is the box of goodies we received, a few days before Christmas. I hid the box, along with everything else. Christmas morning when the kids dumped their stockings, they found the foil wrapped snowmen, and went crazy. Candy is a big treat in our house. It is something that we just do not have around. One, they don't really need it, two, my little guy has the allergy to peanuts and all tree nuts.
Needless to say, when they tasted the Chocolate, it was like heaven to them. It was so wonderful, to see the joy in their faces. I will post photos of that later.
I am working with my new camera. These photos were still on my old card.
It took them awhile, reveling in the Chocolate goodness, before they even moved on to their gifts.
They especially, loved these gold coins. I too, was excited for them, these are some of the things I use to get as a kid.
We had a wonderful holiday. Everything, in both homes that we visited, were nut free. We did not have one reaction, what so ever. My husbands family, purchased all of their baking goods, from a list I provided them, and made an order from Vermont Nut Free also.
It was so nice for me to relax, and know my two year old could touch, or eat, whatever he wanted. I did not have to search the house, move bowls, or cringe when anyone wanted to touch or kiss him. This was a big relief.
I had one visitor, that brought a plate of unsafe treats. I immediately, without hurting any one's feelings, took the plate out to the garage. Today, when we were taking out the trash, someone was digging through it, and we gave him the plate of goodies.
I hope you all had a wonderful Nut Free, none reactive Holiday also. (More Photos to come)
