"Lollipop- hot?"

Yesterday we made a quick little stop at the local CVS pharmacy. As I was unloading the girls from the car, Bella was very interested in a man standing outside the building. He was smoking a cigarette, and I think she was confused about what he was doing. As we were walking through the parking lot, Bella began to ask, "Lollipop- hot? Lollipop- hot??" I quietly replied, "No, baby. He doesn't have a lollipop." Now, Wubs has asked me before about the 'no smoking' signs we have seen at various restaurants and stores, and I have explained that smoking is bad for you. I told Wubs that smoking isn't healthy for our bodies, and to make my explanation more dramatic, I added that smoke makes your insides turn black and sticky. Well, Wubs has a very good memory. wink. We had almost made it past the man and inside the pharmacy, when Wubs very loudly explained to Bella, "Bella, he's SMOKIN'. That's really bad and he'll turn black inside and it's NASTY!" *gulp* Note to self: Wubs will repeat everything I say.

"Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under complusion, for God loves a cheerful giver."- 2 Corinthians 9:7
Here are some pictures of the girls making 'scary' jack-o-latern faces for the camera!
