Introducing the Corn Family

First, I would like to first introduce you to the Corn family. Christopher Corn, is a devoted husband and father. He enjoys golfing and DIY projects. Secondly Candace Corn, better known as Candy loves baking. She is particularly well known for her Boston Cream pies. Finally, Caroline Corn, is the baby of the family and spends her days giggling and blowing raspberries.
