Favorite Things: Nativity Lollies

I typically don't do advertising on this site.  But I just have to tell you about Lulee's Lollies, a Dayton-based confectionery, owned and operated by a friend of our son Jeremy Loyd and daughter-in-law Cortney. Luanne Storer, owner and baker, creates delights for eye and palletteHer own description reads: Hand made Confections on a stick. Perfect for any and all occasions!

Last Christmas we had all our grandsons (ages 1 to 5) together.  I wanted our celebration to be extra special and applicable to the little ones.  So I emailed Luanne Storer to see if she could make her luscious lollies in the likenesses of our familiar Nativity characters.

Well, she outdid herself!  The lollies were amazingly delightful to all of us, young and old!  See for yourself:

But we didn't just eat them...though the eating is amazing in itself.  We used them to act out the Christmas story.  My husband read the story from a children's version and each of us acted on cue with our characters.  It was fun, unique, effective, and ultimately delicious :)

If you have children or grandchildren, you may want to consider this creative option to Christmas dessert and devotions.
