You Capture - Cold

Show of hands...

Who is sick

and tired

of me complaining about the cold?


That is why this You Capture post is brought to you by ice cream. You're welcome.

Honestly, sometimes I'm not sure what gets into me...a little crazy, I guess. Or maybe I just want to be Mommy Hero for a change. Anyway, this afternoon, I decided to let the kids make their own ice cream sundaes. I set them on a buffet line with all of the toppings.

They put on Oreos

and marshmallows

and lots of sprinkles.

I had fun playing with the sprinkles:

And the kids? Well, I think they really enjoyed their make-your-own-sundaes.

"Mommy Hero"? I LOVE it. :) Great photos--and great idea. It looks like you had a LOT of fun with the sprinkles. (Those are my favorite shots!)

That's funny! We do think alike! Love your ice cream photos. The first one is my favorite. The sprinkles look awesome! Love the last one of your daughter too. Look really fun. We need to have a sundae night!

I've been complaining, too! I'm sick & tired of the cold weather!!!

But, I really like the colorful shots here... especially the one w/ the purple shirt... that's awesome! =)

These just might be the best photos ever! I don't know about hero mom, but you are my hero! I want to see a photo of that perfectly set up topping bar AFTER the kids were done with it. :)

I loved your bright, cheerful and sometime quirky take on cold - In fact, I'm still smiling. Very nice!

You really captured cold in a delicious way and your wb is spot on.

LOL!! I so love your first opening part! Too bad I can't eat ice cream -- sure looks good.

And your shots with pouring the sprinkles in the bowl -- way too cool! haha!

And I had to chuckle at the cross-eyed look!

Awesome idea! Awesome photos! Love the macro sprinkles image. So colourful! Looks like you had almost as much fun taking photos as the kids had making and eating their own sundaes.
