Fruit Salad...Yummy, Yummy...

Do you know what song that is from and/or who sings it? It's one of my favorite kiddie songs, to be honest. LOL

Anyway, Jessica found a recipe for fruit salad online and asked, ever so sweetly, if we could make it. I gathered the fruits the other day and we finally had a good block of time today to get it done....

We started out with all this...

Did a little (okay, a lot) of this...

I made sure they were super careful with the knives, I promise!


A little sneaky, sneaky of some fruit...

Because it's just too hard to resist...

Love a strawberry juice mustache, don't you?

Added some powdered sugar and the juice of two oranges and one lemon, and tossed it all together 
to get this!

They are so pleased with how it looked...

And were understanding when Mommy put the bowl into the fridge so all the juices could intermingle as they need to.

So let's get goofy! You can't tell in the picture of the two of them above that Amy was giving Jessica bunny fingers. Mommy framed it so you couldn't see it. So Amy gave them to herself. Silly bunny!

Then she and Jessica wanted a picture with the bunny ears...Amy's trying to hide...yeah, right!

Just cuz she's so cute!

And now we all wait and anticipate a yummy, yummy fruit salad for dessert tonight!

And, just in case you didn't know the reference to the song, it's
by 
The Wiggles
(there's actually a video of the song linked above if you really want to hear it).

Ooh, the salad looks wonderful. Great job, girls! CUTE photos, too. Cute enough to scrapbook!

And now, thanks to you, I've got a song stuck in my head but not the Fruit Salad song by the Wiggles (with whom I was not familiar.

When I saw "yummy, yummy," I immediately started humming, "Yummy, Yummy, Yummy, I've got love in my tummy, and I feel like a-lovin' you..." circa 1968 by 1910 Fruitgum Company. Catchy tune that I never particularly cared for. I'll probably be singing it until I go to bed. LOL.

Enjoy your evening AND the fruit salad dessert!!

Jeanne as far as I know the only singers of "Fruit Salad" ..yummy yummy are The Wiggles. An Australian group of men who have made millions from entertaining children. Fletcher has been to many of their concerts and has every CD and DVD they have released. I am sure that every Australian child knows the Wiggles lol.

YUMMY! I stared singing that song, when I saw the title of your post. I think that song from the Wiggles is burned into my brain. It is a cute one!

I hope you scrapbook this event. Looks like all of you had a lot of fun. The salad looks delicious!

That salad looks so good! And I knew the song, but didn't know it was by the Wiggles. My niece kept singing it and I had no clue!!

As soon as you asked the question, I was like, I know, I know!!! We used to love the Wiggles and watched them every day. My kids have outgrown them now but they sure were fun to watch.

The pics of your girls are so darling. What a fun time you all had.
