Wishes Come True

This morning when I arrived home from an event, Little Mr. greeted me with his grand idea--to make a lion out of candy. He described in detail what it would look like and how he would make it. After the Mr. and girls left for ballet, I agreed that we could try to make his wish come true. So, I girded my loins and we walked down the hill to the neighborhood store and collected the goodies to make the lion he imagined. While making the lion, he said, "Don't you think we could make a monkey too?" So we did. Although he loved the final product, I loved helping him through the process of making his dream a reality! Oh, and Little Debbie's oatmeal cookies worked so well for this project--the creamy filling worked wonders as the "glue!"

You're a patient mom. That's cute. I also wanted to thank you for the book you gave for Abella and us for Christmas. I hear it's a very popular book and I will enjoy reading it to her. Thanks again!

Those cookies are so cute. And that lil smiling cookie holding the cookie is so cute, too! We hope we get to see you all sometime this year!
