We Have a Winner!

David surprised us by coming home in time for dinner last night. We celebrated by ordering pizza and shoving a quick Family Home Evening in the narrow time-slot between dinner and Michael's bedtime. This consisted of about ten minutes of watching Michael run himself into a sweaty oblivion, leaping off couches and demanding, "Watch me, Daddy!", a quick song, and a thirty second lesson on baptism, since Michael was too caught up in the forthcoming hide and seek activity to hold still and look at pictures of Jesus.

So we played a few rounds until Michael went off to hide by himself and David and I went into his bedroom to count. When we shut the door we discovered a doorknob-sized hole in the wall, the obvious result of a broken doorstop and a tantrum-throwing little boy, who shall remain nameless. Sigh.

So we ended the hide and seek game and decided to draw a name out of a bowl for our "Life as an Adverb" book giveaway instead. Michael was tasked with pulling a name since he is the most impartial judge, seeing as he can't read and therefore can't cheat.

And the winner is... Deonne! Congratulations! (I'll email you shortly).

Michael enjoyed choosing a winner so much he continued to draw out names and "read" them. ("This one says 'Clara'," he would say).

Thanks to everyone who participated!

Yeah!!!! Can I pick it up next month in New York City (must be said in the Pace's Salsa commercial accent).

What a statement of our modern work-week. A surprise that David came home for dinner? I had to laugh. We can sadly relate. It would be a heart-stopper for us if Doug came home for dinner this week! Sounds like things are going well your way. Sure love your blog Bonnie.
