What I do on prednisone.

I certainly don't sleep. 

Last night I found this little nugget about 1 AM and cried.

The most adorable, sexist play I've ever seen

 Bode was in the 2nd grade musical this week. He and his bros were roosters.
Their only job was to heckle the "cute chicks." 
 Bode saw these pictures and said, "Hey, there are supposed to be four chicks hanging on me. Someone wasn't doing their job." 
With that attitude there should be NO chicks hanging on that little chauvinistic rooster (perhaps he should have been a pig ;).
But all joking (sort of) aside, I sincerely loved seeing these little jocks in their barnyard costumes. It reminds me that they are still innocent little boys.
 Bode is so blessed to be surrounded with this group of snaggle-toothed kids. They still think girls are weird and terrifying, they smell like wet puppy dogs and their parents aren't jerks. What more could a parent ask for?

What's happened the last 26 days:

 I'm sure you've all been wondering (Mom).

Well, first off chocolate. 
Chocolate is always happening at our house, but thankfully Easter gave my Dad the perfect excuse to give my children this monstrosity. 
And I'm not even going to pretend to be upset about it. 
Have you ever put part of a chocolate bunny ear in your coffee? Well, you should.
Then there was LTC. The Leadership Training for Christ convention is something only the most devout church of Christ kid can understand. It's strangely awesome.
These kids studied the books of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth for months. I know Mia learned a lot based on the questions she would ask me ("Mom, what's a virgin?" "What's a rape?" "How many people do you think Samson murdered with his bare hands?"). 
Thanks, Old Testament.

 Gena and I were up to no good the entire weekend...
Sneaking food into conference rooms, 
 skipping our kids' events to stuff our faces, 

 drinking coffee well past our bedtimes.
We were terrible examples to the Christian leaders of tomorrow. 
"Watch what we do, kids, and go forth and do the exact opposite".
It's a miracle this kid has turned out as sweet as she has. 
Bode wasn't invited to LTC this year per the request of four different security guards at the hotel. Let's just say last year Bode and the security team at the Dallas Anatole had several bonding moments.
