The Christmas "Stop-by"

It seems that the Christmas "Stop-by's" have begun a little early this year. We are more used to them being on Christmas Eve - but we are not one's to pretend we're not home just because we're not wearing any pants. Just like a designated driver, we have one person assigned to be able to receive guests at the door while the rest of the crew...uh...completes their ensemble.

But more to the point - tonight we had three "stop-by's." One with delicious chocolate covered popcorn, another with the worlds greatest caramels, and the last - and really the most spectacular was a cake. In our ward, the Laurels get together each Sunday evening to bake and decorate cakes for folks in the ward. I'm not sure how it started or the reasoning - but I'm not one to turn down a cake. So, here it is:
Trixie with the cake
A cake! For us! With blue frosting!
We loved the details - the nose is an M&M on its edge - in relief!!
We are so amazed at the generosity of our friends and family!

We got the world's best caramels too but we don't know who gave them to us. Like a beautiful baby, these culinary bits of heaven was left at our door step. Do you know who we can thank for them? (and perhaps beg them to make more)
