Rock Candy

I was bummed when Eli's teacher said their Valentine treats had to be store-bought, his class mates would never see these beauties.  We decided to make some anyway for friends not from school. The jars didn't hold much syrup, so they ended up being skinnier than the ones in the tutorial

I could get addicted to rainbows.

Happy Valentine's Day

Brian's home sick, Eli's at school, so we're having fun with Esme. She's been asking to paint her toes for a long time. She picked red over pink.  She did a good job staying still, waiting until I said it was okay to get down. Even bossing dad not to touch her toe nails.

Then she insisted on painting mine, stopping as soon as a little got a mess on her fingers.
