Several times Ben (6) had asked if it was time for Grandy.
And then Gran remembered that she had not taken many photos.
An idea was born!
Gran: Ben, if you sit in that chair and look as cute as you can while I take your picture,
you can have three candies!"
No sooner said than done.
(Pretty cute, huh?)
Aunt Kati: How about if you be cute on my lap?
Gran: If you're cute on Kati's lap, you can have four candies!
That was a little harder...
...but he got the job done.
Owen (8) is really not into being cute...but three candies were at stake.
A guy's gotta do what a guy's gotta do.
Maddie (10): No thank you. I'll just have three.
Sigh. I suppose one can get too old to sit in a lap. (But she's not too old to be cute.)
Alaine (4) was presented the offer of multiple candies.
"I'll take four!!"
She jumped into Aunt Kati's lap to be cute and claim her prize!
Gavin (12) surprised us all.
"I have to sit in Kati's lap to get four candies? All right."
He wasn't sure what that was all about, but sit he did.
The kids made their choices...
...and Gran got some cute pictures.
