We All Scream For Ice Cream!

It seems without fail once a week the kids ask me if we can stop and get an ice cream when we're driving home from school. Sometimes we stop, usually on a Friday, and get a cup of ice cream or a sundae. Of course, they think that is just the best thing ever. So, I decided I would have an ice cream party for them after school one day. Last Tuesday, they walked in the door and to their surprise was a table set with all the fixins' for ice cream sundaes. I had set out cute little tulip sundae cups on striped napkins that matched well with the green table cloth and turquoise tulle table runner to make it colorful and fun. The toppings were in separate small bowls on top of a cake pedestal with gummy bears sprinkled all around them. A candy lover's dream! They were speechless. Trent finally said, "Is this for us?". They had a "sweet" time making their sundaes.

Our ice cream sundae bar :
vanilla ice cream
chopped pecans
crushed Oreos
gummy bears
hot fudge sauce
caramel sauce
whipped cream
french vanilla rolled wafers

Trent kept piling on the goodies and I didn't mind at all. They were all so thrilled that they got to put on as much as they wanted. Mmmmm!

It looks like this girl knows how to make a good sundae! That's our friend, Althea, beside Laci. She comes home from school with us everyday and stays a little while. Althea made a scrumptious sundae as well and even had a cherry on top, but she did not want me to take her picture.
