Typical Sunday



As you can see by these pictures, my son was being quite a goof this afternoon. After he awoke happily from a sleep, he came out with this hat on his head. As you can see, the hat has definitely seen better days.

Although he didn't start off being the best little boy on the planet at the beginning of church tonight, he fixed it quite nicely. He was grumpy with a man in our church who was only trying to make him laugh, but he apologized properly (and humbly - for him) to this man. After that, he was very, very good in church.

After church I let my darlings have some ice cream as a treat for their improved behaviour. They decided to make an adventure of it, as you can see.

After all, where else in the world is it better to eat ice cream but underneath the dining room table?

I was in the kitchen when Seth started crying like his heart was breaking. I knew right away that he must have spilled his ice cream, and sure enough, his bowl ended up upside down on the floor. Knowing that his distress was simply because he lost his ice cream and thought he wouldn't get any any more, I was moved to compassion by his tears. I cleaned up the mess and replaced his ice cream - with a little bit extra - with the warning that he would get no more if this happened again (in case he got any ideas).

They ended the evening giggling and eating their ice cream under the table.

Along with their stories, of course.

That should have been a "kodak" moment as well, Jenna.

Oh it definitely was.

Yup, it sure was, Dar. I was literally laying on the floor taking pictures, because I wasn't going to miss this photo opportunity, nor the possiblity of "blackmail" in the future! Hee, hee, hee! Just kidding. I did scrap it and they are some of my favorite pictures of the girls because of the carefree-ness. (I know that isn't really a word, but I don't know how else to put it).

Anyway, love the picture and I am sure there will be many more "adventures" under the table!

What is it that's so exciting about being under things, like the kitchen table? I distinctly remember getting thrills out of events such as that as a child.

A childs imagination is so broad. You can only guess at what's going through their active brain while eating their ice cream under the kitchen table, eh?

(I'm sneakin' the "eh" back into my vocabulary while I can without getting ridiculed! hehe!)
