What A Sucker!

This past weekend I made my Easter candy to share with my family, favorite teachers, and my egg buying neighbors. I get my milk chocolate down in Amish Country at one of the bulk stores. One of my very favorite candy molds is my sheep suckers!

Isn't that the darn cutest sucker? I love my sheep suckers! They use a lot of chocolate but everyone loves them and they are so easy too make.

"Psst, hey Autumn, good thing she was talking about some chocolate suckers because the sheep all know that the only real suckers around here are those goats. They fall for that grain thing all the time."

"Grain? Did someone say grain? If those sheep are playing with us again, I am going to yank out some of that wool again!"
Hope everyone is enjoying this well-deserved beautiful weather! Its a great way to start Spring Break on Friday!!! So much to do!

Wow Kristi,
Wish you lived closer to me and I was on your sucker list! Love those chocolate sheep. Great job. Are you enjoying your lamb free spring, or do you miss it? I have mixed feelings--I love the lambs, but whew..I forgot how little I can get done around here, when they start lambing!

Christine,
you are gonna love that goat humor esp. when they start getting out of the fencing:)

Tammy,
I actually I am totally enjoying being lamb-free. I do miss the little surprises and seeing spots bouncing around and those silly lamb races but I needed to do this to reorganize my farm and objectives and make hard decisions on moving some of them out. But I already have my breeding groups planned out for this Fall:)

Hi Shula,
its a simple little gift to give and they are yummy:)

Oh, that sucker looks yummy!

You know, someone gave me a chocolate cross for Easter.
I felt kinda funny eating it...it's a cross.

But...I still ate it. :O
