Ring Pops

Last night after church, we needed to make a quick stop at the Dollar Store. While we were there, Wubs spotted an especially exciting candy...ring pops. (The girls have never had ring pops before, so we agreed that this candy was a necessary purchase. wink!) Emma Grace is a big helper, so while I was fishing out my debit card from the diaper bag, she was placing the items we were purchasing up on the counter. Somewhere between swiping the debit card/ stopping Bella from her attempt to pull the sunglasses off the display/ and helping Emma Grace open her ring pop - I realized our total was extremely high for our little dollar store pit stop. Apparently Wubs got somewhat carried away while placing items up on the counter and I didn't see her. Our purchase included several 'extras' so we had to get in line again to make a return and get a refund! Here are some cute pictures of the girls enjoying their treat. Bella's chin was still blue this morning, even though I washed her face several times before bed.

"This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love; not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins."- 1 John 4:9-10

  1. I love this little story. That is exactly what Luke would do too! I call him "Sticky Fingers" when we shop because we always end up with surprises in the cart when I'm not looking. And look at Bella's sweet face! How funny!
