Popsicles



Is it summer yet? Down here, it's been mighty darn close. Temps in the lower 80s and humidity cubed.

Just in time for Emma's latest St. Vincent De Paul's purchase, popsicle molds! The kids each made one, lemonade for Anna, O.J., for John M. and Sunny D. for Emma. They broke them out yesterday and licked them to death.

I can still remember freezing Hawaiian Punch in ice cube trays as a kid, and it was just like heaven. On a stick.
(I realize these popsicles are a little phallic, but hey . . .)

Yes, you would compare your kids' popsicles to penises. Tee hee!!

It's almost 80 here today in Nashville! Thanks for reminding me to put popsicles on my grocery list. ;)

How I envy your nice weather....please send some this way.....it's warmer here now and the snow has melted but the temp today is on 51ยบ and rainy and cloudy......we are in desperate need of summer or even more spring-like weather.

I used to freeze popsicles for my kids when they were small too....they loved them!

I so remember eating ice cube popsicles!! Of course what made eating those more of a challenge was the fact that we used toothpicks for the sticks! Nothing like eating a melted chunk of ice on a little toothpick! LOL!!

I love them! LOVE THEM! We make our own too, all the time, and it is great, great fun and the kids adore it.

What a great picture!

Lord - I never would have thought the phallic thing had you not said it. DAMMIT.

I totally loved homemade popsicles. Faith is on such a kick, we have ten different kinds in our fridge, and I'm sorry - they all SUCK!!! I thought we found Dr. Pepper popsicles.. but we got them home and they were DIET DR. PEPPER?? WTF??

Yes, they are a little THAT, but I agree they were heaven just the same.

Great picture.

They look like they are having so much fun!!! I read your blog all day long yesterday. We really do have so much in common. I have a sister who is 10 months older than me. We are very, very close and see each other once a week. We talk every single day, she has 2 kids too a boy and a girl (like me).
