kind of like hansel and gretel

Remember what my kids did last week while I was getting ready for church?

Go refresh your memory.

Today they made a trail of Apple Jacks for me to follow when I was done drying my hair. I wasn't even in the bathroom very long. They work fast.

I'm thinking it's time to start a weekly feature called "Look what trouble the kids get into when their parents are getting ready for church meetings!"

It's a good thing Danny can count to 100 all by himself because he got all the way to 73 with that trail.

I swept it up and they got upset.

Then I scared them by telling them the ants would crawl into our house and eat them. I meant the Apple Jacks when I said them but I think my kids thought I meant the ants would eat them (you know, the kids).

I didn't clarify. It's best to keep them on their toes about such things.

Cate later told Dan, "Daddy, when you see ants say ANTS!"

Thanks, Dora.

And thanks a lot, Hansel and Gretel.

Oh,yeah. That'll be the day. I wonder what category it'll fit under. I have my ideas but I'm trying to keep things upbeat around here.
