christine wenger stories with a smile



My friend, MJ Compton, remembers her grandmother making this fudge every year between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Somehow between working long hours at an industrial laundry, bowling leagues, and holiday banquets, she was able to give each of her 26 grandchildren (yikes!) a batch as part of their Christmas gift. MJ remembers Grandma Flossie sewing Barbie doll clothes for all the granddaughters as Christmas gifts, too.
