Funky jello...

Snatched from a video taken last night after dinner, I caught this moment 
right after Paul had... 
...sucked up a Jello man from the cutting board -- to Emma's astonishment 
and complete amusement.

I love these photos!

(And, they inspired TWO Picasa collages!)
Earlier in the day, Emma made a project for school using Jello.  With the extra, she made Jello men.  Technical difficulties ensued when trying to pop the men out of the mold.  Very few survived.  I was alone in this opinion, but I declared it as positively gross!  

Paul, in all his "dad-ness" showed off by sucking up a Jello man from the tray.  Look closely at the collage...someone else was watching and gave it a try herself!  
Gives new meaning to Robert Fulghum's quote: "Don't worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you."

Emma also made Jello hearts with jelly beans stuck in them.  
Oh, my!  
These didn't come out of the mold well either and much disgustingness silliness took place.  

Later, I had some fun with these photos in Picasa -- the colors and shapes lent themselves to "funktification."
It was quite a dessert!  
Thank goodness we were out of whipped cream ;-)
