I was in the middle of making out my grocery list this morning when Jenna sent me a message and asked me if we could watch Amara for a couple of hours while she went to visit her Dad. I’ve told you before that going to the grocery store with Amara is so much more fun than going alone so taking her with me was the first thing that came to mind. We had a blast!
I was also thinking that maybe she and I could make the Lollipop Ghosts that Grandma Lizzie and written about a few days ago on her blog. I didn’t want to tell Amara about them and then have her be disappointed if we couldn’t do them so I just put Tootsie Roll Pops on the list and figured if they had them we would make them. They had them! I still didn’t tell her what I was up to. I wanted a chance to put the groceries away. I think she thought I was just getting them to give away to the Trick-or-Treaters.
She had gone outside to swing while I put the groceries away. When I got done I just sat down at the table and started to make the first one. I soon found her standing next to me watching what I was doing. Then she took over making them. I already had silver ribbon so I decided to use that. I did the ribbon cutting and curling and she did everything else. We had such a good time! She made a point of thanking me for making them with her. I told her it was Grandma Lizzie’s idea!
FYI — Amara’s lips are blue because there was a blue open Tootsie Roll Pop in the bag. I thought it should go in my mouth but you can tell who won!
