It was a really nice day at church.
We were sitting down to a family game night last night, when my friend called to tell me the Coca-Cola Santa was at the local Walmart. She knew I was looking for an opportunity to visit Santa that didn't involve a trip to the mall. We called for everyone to get their shoes on and grab a jacket--"We're going to see Santa!"
Clark and Bethany recently invited a group of kids from their church classes over for a game night. It was a really nice, fun group of kids and there was an added benefit to our family as well. Clark and Bethany were very anxiously engaged in cleaning the house all day in preparation.
Was it wrong of me to take such enjoyment in watching their frustration as rooms they had just cleaned immediately got messy again?
Yes, it was wrong of me. But justified?
Elinor and Faith worked on a gingerbread house. Perhaps no one mentioned that they could use all the icing. I think they thought there was an icing shortage.
Sadly, this was made on Saturday afternoon. As of Sunday night, the candy had all been picked off. Our family has yet to create even one respectable gingerbread house that lasts more than two days.
Maybe next year.
