Hello stamping friends!!
Well is seems that Ryan's stomach thing is gone - only lasted 1 hour on Monday and caused us to miss the beach. But so far the rest of us seem to be fine. Ansley has a little bit of a stomach ache yesterday, but nothing to keep her from tormenting her brother...or keep her home from Vacation Bible School.
The kids are enjoying VBS again this year. Ryan says he doesn't want to go...until we pull into the parking lot...then he says "ok, I'll go"! And every time we pick him up, his "teacher" says he was "active"...you have no idea, lady!! LOL
Speaking of active, yesterday we had a busy day. We woke up, got ready, picked up two friends, then met other friends for bowling!! The kids earn free bowling based on their report cards!! We only had to pay for shoe rentals - and my kids' shoes are size 13 or under so they were free!! We only had to pay for our friend's shoes since they were bigger than 13.
After bowling, we went out for pizza for lunch then on to another fun activity...chocolate camp!! Yep, Chocolate camp!! How awesome is that?!
For $25 each, they get to hand-dip their own treats: Pretzel sticks, oreos, rice crispy treats, lollipop mold, and graham crackers. Plus they get to lick their gloves after they dip each item (yes, they get new gloves and wash their hands in between) AND a cup of gelato ice cream!!
You guessed, it, I have a ton of pictures and will be scrapping them at some point. But I wanted to quickly show some photos now...
Ryan and Ansley in their dipping get-up...
Check out Ryan's messy face!
And the final results of the dipping adventure...
Yes, Ryan still has chocolate all over his face!! I guess I got used to seeing it so I didn't notice it again until we were in a clothing store a little later!! Bad mom!!
Talk about being an "active kid"!! Ryan can control his activity level with 1 thing: Threats - when there is a strong consequence for his behavior, then he can control it.
But when you add in ANY sugar and forget it!! I call him "Crazy boy on sugar". Do you remember those anti-drug commercials in the 80's...."This is your brain (show an egg), this is your brain on crack (show an egg cooking in a frying pan)". My version is: This is my son...they is my son on sugar...
Take a look at Ryan in the left side of this picture (under the arrow). He's a blurr!! He was literally jumping up and down and couldn't stand still...so much so that I couldn't get a clear picture of him!! LOL
Well, all is good. The dipped treats are home now and I am sure will be eaten or forgotten about soon. Ryan doesn't have much of a sweet tooth so he may only eat 1 or 2 pieces. Ansley, on the other hand, will eat everything within a few days!!
I will be back in the next day or so with a gift I made my husband in honor of our 10th anniversary last week.
In the mean time...
Thanks for stopping by! Happy stamping!
