Candy Trains!

I had a lot of candy leftover from making candy trains with the Laurels at church in mid-December. At first I was kinda bummed, since not that many girls showed up (finals week) and I did NOT want this candy in my house because I would eventually consume it all. Then, it dawned on me that I have an 8 year old son who would LOVE to have his friends over to make candy trains.
And so it started...
There were a lot of concentration faces being made as the icing can be a little tricky. I love this one of Dominic with his tongue out.
Almost all of the shots I took have at least one kid with candy in his mouth.
They started out asking questions like "can I put this here?" and "Is this how its supposed to look?
I had to remind them that it was a free for all. There was no right or wrong way to do it, but just use their imagination and "make it work." (project runway's saying)
They had AWESOME trains in the end and had a lot of fun doing it. Thanks Dominic (the other Dominic), Brenden and Davis for coming over and making trains with us!
The Two Dominic's trains.
Davis and Brenden.
Brenden had his about to go off the cliff and a man who had fallen off into the snow.
And Michael just played with toys. He's been sitting up for quite a few weeks now and enjoying his new found freedom off his stomach. Don't you love the carharts? These were Dominic's and I think of the Arnold's every time I see them (they gave them to me when I had Dominic).

This picture is kinda funny because he got his sock half way off and every time he moved his foot it would make the part that was off his foot wiggle enough to grab his attention, which would excite him and make his foot wiggle more, which would make the sock wiggle more. It was HILARIOUS to watch, kinda like a cat chasing its tail.
