the chinese candle, revisited . . .

I didn't realize that while I was taking video of the spectacle, Todd was taking photos of the fiery ordeal. I so wanted to share the process of this funky candle!

Here it is just as Jason is lighting it . . .


Then the flames run high . . .


And higher . . .


And just when we start to look for a fire extinguisher, the petals start to unfold:


And as the petals unfold, it starts playing, "Happy Birthday!"


Then we realize that the fire has completely consumed one of the petals, and the ice cream cake has thawed considerably.


It was so much fun! I *do* wish I could share that video! But I think you get . . . the picture!

Never have I seen a candle like that until you showed it to us here the other day. It does seem like a really fun candle....but I had to laugh when you said it was still playing Happy Birthday for awhile afterwards.

I still have a few of these left over myself! (I always forget to use them-and I have to admit we had a bit of a scare with one too! LOL! ...) but... they really are too much fun! One of my most favorite B'day memories EVER will be my surprise Happy B'day in China when the team celebrated with me! Flaming Candle & all! ... Awesome! :) ...

Love you friend! and Thanks for sharing!
