I know I promised belly shots and I didn't forget. I just forgot that I had this batch of pictures ahead of the belly batch. So next post...really!
This has been a week of sweets and treats.
It all started with a trip to the candy boutique with huge swirly lollipops in mind. Kaitlyn and Ethan were watching 'Are we there yet, world adventure' and the kids in the show went to a candy making shop in Spain. The treat they chose was of course swirly lollipops.
We found what we came for and in the flavours and colours we wanted too. (And please do not mind my 'u's in both those words. I am Canadian, Mr. Spellcheck, that is just how we do it here)
The kids are now dancing around the living room pointing to these pictures and listening to "lollipop, lollipop, oh lolli-lollipop, ba,da, boom, boom, boom....on tape. It sounds so old and so rough, but it is so fun!
I drew up a quick doodle for the kids, whipped off a bunch of copies and then passed them out. Above is the one that Emily (my 10 yr old sister) coloured.
We intended to mail these off to friends and family but the only recipient of these home made cards ended up being Dave. Ethan shoved his in an envelope and stood by the door waiting to mail it to "daddy, daddy, daddyyyyyy.."
We did manage to get a few of the colouring (there goes Mr. Spellchecker again) sheets mailed out to little friends and have a stash left here for when little friends come to visit.
If any of you are interested in a copy I can make an downloadable copy for the next post.
I hope you all have a sweet Valentine's Day!
