One of Callie's favorite books is Pinkalicious. "Pinkalicious eats so many pink cupcakes that she wakes up the next morning with pink skin and hair. The color just won't wash off, and the doctor diagnoses her with Pinkititis and tells her to eat green food to get better. Still, when her parents aren't looking, she sneaks just one more treat–and turns red. Startled, she starts to choke down her veggies and finally returns to normal. When everything seems okay, Daddy asks what happened to the other cupcakes, and Pinkalicious's little brother bounds into the room with one in hand, happily showing off his new pink skin." (amazon)

So Callie had been asking all week if we could make some pinkalicious cupcakes and last night we finally did! She hoped to eat enough to wake up with pink skin this morning, but alas, her skin is normal today. She woke up & said, "My skin isn't pink - that means I didn't eat enough pink pupcakes!"

6 talk to me:

You are so cute. I mean how fun that you read something in a book and you guys tried it out. I love that she thought she needed to eat more. I love that she actually wanted her hair to turn pink. How are you feeling? What is the countdown?

What a cute idea! Your kids are so cute. They crack me up. Also, I was wondering where it was that prints out blogs. My friend is looking for something like that and I remembered that you had mentioned a site or something that did that.

Lulu.com & cafepress.com are self-publishing companies, but you have to do the formatting. There aren't any places right now that you can just click a few buttons to have a Blogger blog printed (to my knowledge; one went out of business & one is currently not printing Blogger but will print from other blog sites). Do a google search for blog printing.
