Yesterday after Bible School, Joy had her friend, Molly Grace, over to play and swim. They look innocent enough here, right?
Well this picture was taken after an afternoon of swimming. (Oh and Molly Grace is wearing some of my old stretchy clothes because she didn't have an extra change with her). So they were looking for something else to do. These two can cook up some adventures, believe me! They both love adventure, outdoors and animals. So the next thing they did was chase the cats around the house (the cats ALWAYS run because they never know what kind of clothes they'll be wearing or what "adventure" they'll have to endure!). Then they invaded Colt's room (luckily he wasn't home....well lucky for them!)
But that's not all....
After this was taken, I decided to work on my blog a little upstairs on the desktop computer. I should have known better. (That's why moms should ALWAYS listen to their gut feeling)!
From upstairs, I hear, "Mom, can we have a snack?" Of course, I hollered back down that it was fine. Now I should also tell you that I had just stocked the pantry (brought groceries while they were in Bible School). So it was a "Hallelujah Smorgasbord" for them, I guess.
This is what I came downstairs to find:
I guess they couldn't make up their mind, so they just took it all:
This is what Joy was eating: Chips dipped in ketchup and poptart. Her drink of choice was a Mountain Dew.
Molly Grace REALLY couldn't make up her mind so she had a bowl of cornflakes, a chocolate chip waffle (with syrup) and nacho chips. She quickly pointed out though that she did drink healthy....she had a cup of milk!
They proceeded to tell me what an appetite they had worked up! The good news is that they DID clean up their own mess. Good girls!
Can you believe later they had the nerve to ask me if they could make cupcakes......from scratch???? That was definitely shelved for another day!
I learned a couple of lessons yesterday.
1) Use the laptop downstairs when Joy has company over!
2) Be more specific when asked, "Can we have a snack?".
