Today I Purchased a Lot of Candy.

Ash and I went to two different stores to find all the candy needed to make this cake:

I'm going to put this together for my brother's 8th birthday party tonight.  Should be pretty simple and fun.  I bet he loves it.  Of course he's one of those kids who just loves and appreciates everything anybody does for him.  Complete angel child.   How'd my parents get so lucky?

While we were out, I bought Ash her first candy necklace.  Needless to say, she was thrilled.  I continue to be amazed and impressed with her ability to eat only half or 2/3s of her treats and then throw the rest away.  I should be taking notes.  :)

And on a totally unrelated topic, Britt figured out how to drink from a sippy cup today.  YAY!!
