Look what I got

I had asked my brother to send me some treats from France. I gave him very specific directions, and a few weeks ago, he said that he had bought it, but wasn't sure when it would be sent.
Friday, there was a ring at the doorbell, and this is what I signed for:

A HUGE package full of these treats.
Cote D'or Lait Amandes caramlisees avec un point du sel
(milk chocolat with carmelized almonds with a pinch of salt)

Carambars parfum caramel

(carmel carambars)

Suchard Rochers Noir

(dark chocolat rochers)

All of these are only in France. You can get them online but they cost way more. I am so excited!! Matt was just trying to cut back on his candy too. Oh well. These treats are to eat!!! And lest you think I'm exploiting a missionary, I am paying for all of this. We have it all set up. Next thing I want is a cd of the Prince of Egypt. Of course in French. That was how I learned it, and how I prefer it. It is almost as good as being there. But not really.....

Don't you all wish you lived closer so you could have some??? :)

yeah-- thanks a lot!

I've always been a sugar junkie, but since having this baby?? It's exponentially worse!!

I need to get Joe to check this post out. He'll be jealous, I'm sure!

not to brag, but I don't have to pay for it, I just play on the grandparents heartstrings and they spoil my kids (and me by the same token)eeheeheeh! My kids love the BN cookies and any good real licorice they can get their hands on from there. Nathan is a chocolate addict. Have you ever tried the "fraises tagada". Don goes for them first.
