Claire got into it first.
Claire had been looking forward to this for several days. Just before this picture I had asked if she liked the necklace. This was the face she made:
Claire actually established a method for eating the beads: pull, chomp, pull, chomp …
Ren wasn’t as methodical about his necklace. He just spent a lot of time smiling, biting, and opening his eyes wide in surprise / excitement. He’s turning into a big ham!
I was busy snapping away with my camera when this vision suddenly appeared in my viewfinder:The candy was GONE! I swear, it seemed like just a couple of minutes. I was actually intending to convince the kids to just eat a part of the candy and save the rest for later. But my little candy fiend beat me to it. Ren finished right away too. Oops.
