Watch It Wiggle . . .

...see it jiggle, cool and creamy, JELLO brand gelatin. . .

Leaving the '80s and coming as far to future as a few years ago. For a couple of years,the church youth leaders would have an Annual Jello Wrestling Sunday event. Each youth would bring a container of prepared jello for the pool. Sometimes there was a lot of jello, sometimes not, but all came eager for the event.

Demolition D's first time going, well, he was a little skeptical. He went just to watch. This sort of fun was way out of his element. Most fun was, he was kinda like a grumpy ol' man in his early teens.

We did make jello, even though D had no intentions of participating any further than being a spectator.

He helped fill the kiddie pool . . .



Lo and behold next thing we know he (in the greay shirt) is in the pool for a match!




And then a little later another!



D emerged from his box and had more fun than I think he had thought possible.
Thanks JELLO!

Wiggle on over to Candid Carries for the foto fiesta!

It is for sale in my store. If it has been sold, I would be happy to make you one. I can use the bird or nest. I think the price on it is $24.00 and there would be a shipping charge.
Love your blog by the way....
Thanks,
Yvette

What a fun thing to do! I'm glad he tried it out... I know that jello was calling him.. I sometimes feel the need to touch it when I make it and really didn't know I had the desire until I touched it..

Thanks for sharing this fun-filled day!
