Sweet Love

The other afternoon the kids were feasting on a "snack".  We told them they could eat their M&M's but only if they shared with Mike and I.  We each got seven candies.  Then Mike stole some from Jake and I got some more because Jake didn't think it was fair that I didn't get as many as Mike.

As I've posted before though, my kids can't just eat M&M's.  They must make pictures or do some sort of sorting.  Jake sorted by colors.  Maddie did this:

There was one for each of us, including Sadie.  (It would be the small dog face above the green and blue candies.)

She was telling us a story of how each color represented each person and was picked because it resembled the closest "favorite" color of each of ours. 

Then she swooped her arms together and gathered all of the M&M's together, formed this and said,

"When we are all together we have this."
