Monday, Monday..

Last Night after church we had a cupcake fellowship. There were cupcakes..... lots and lots of cupcakes. There were happy people.......... lots and lots of happy people. Cupcakes have a strange effect on people.

Alas, at the end of the Fellowship.. there were still cupcakes... lots and lots of cupcakes. So, our Associate Pastor brought us a few dozen to take home with us..because well... we *are* a lot of people.

Jim declared today to be "Cupcake Monday.." You see we also have a huge cake in the fridge left over from our daughter's 14th birthday. So the cupcakes must be gone. Banished.

It was a sacrifice but we attempted to rise to the challenge..Such a submissive wife and obedient children Jim has (Ha, ha ;o)

Here they are ready to be conquered..

She signed right up for the cause..and even color coordinated.

More children bravely facing the challenge..

What mighty warriors we are raising..

At the end of the battle.

Cupcakes.... have a strange effect on people..

I hope you all had a great Monday! Didn't mean to disappear..January, was a BUSY month.


This Little Fella..

Has put the B in BUSY, more grey in my hair. , and some smooshy gooshy love in my heart.

*Disclaimer-All children had partaken healthy portions of their daily food groups before the cupcake massacre occurred. No children were sick or injured as a result of said massacre. Appearance of illness was for dramatic purposes..which may or may not have been encouraged by their mother.

Wish I could have joined you in your sacrificial, submissive scarfing of sugar. :)

Renee said...

Oooh, I forgot to say, "Happy Birthday" to K. My M is just 6 mo behind her. They're growing up too fast.

Also, I love all the camo at your house. My guys have been playing "sniper" in the backyard w/ their nerf guns and the camo flood the laundry baskets each week.
