This little candy box is more than meets the eye! Inside is a lovely display of chocolate nuggets for that sweet someone in your life. Using the colors shown, it's the perfect gift for the men in your life. Or change up the colors and use the candy box for holidays and events, e.g. Valentines Day, Easter, Wedding Shower favor, Baby Shower favor or as a Birthday Party favor! This project is also a fun class or club project!
This past week I stayed over at my sister and BIL's house watching the three kids! On Monday, it was 90 degrees (unusually hot for Hawaii and especially where we live in the mountains). We saw a Toys R Us ad that had pools for 50% off, so we decided to go get a pool to help cool off! Well, I had no idea that the pool I bought was so huge until we got the pieces out of the box and starting putting it together!!
Here we are in the backyard trying to put the pool together in the 90 degree heat! Craig is a good helper and you can see what kind of a helper Jacie is! We got this far and had to take a break until later in the afternoon when it cooled off a bit.
There were what seemed like a bazzalion pieces!
Jacie put on her swim suit as soon as we got home from Toys R Us. I think she thought we were going to pull the pool out of the box, blow it up, and jump in (I think I did too!).
At least she was very patient (and cute as always)!
Got the pool set up and now to fill it up with water. That took several, several hours with one hose!
We finally got the pool filled and wouldn't you know it, it was an overcast and windy day. Oh well, that wasn't keeping the kids out of the pool. I even got in and we had a blast. From left to bottom, Marisa (Alexa's friend), Jacie, Craig, and Alexa!.

Head on over to Sisters in Stamping to see what my stamping sisters created!
