News in my life: I got my calling today. Primary chorister (isn't that what cake is ?) so next week will be super busy as I will have to give a talk the 1st hour, do primary 2nd hour, and primary as well as nursery 3rd hour. Fun calling though-- I'm excited.

I just wanted to tell ya'll about my apple pie tragedy: we were having some friends over yesterday so I spent a few hours making apple pie (complete with peeling my own apples). Well the previous night I had cooked 9 lbs of pork in our oven so it was a mess. I tried to cook the pie but there was so much smoke coming from the oven that I had to turn it off. I didn't have time to clean the oven so I stuck the uncooked pie in the fridge and determined we would give our friends water instead. Our friends (and their 3 1/2 and 6-year-old tyrant children) came and went. After they left I opened the fridge to find my beloved pie had been mauled. It wouldn't have been that bad, but it was the last straw after finding all of the eggs broken, Steve's new computer messed up, Steve's treasures from Chili that he was saving for his children ruined, food (that they found for themselves) smashed into the carpet that we had cleaned last week, as well as them waking up Kiera by going into her room twice to play after I told them not to. I was so grateful to have them leave!!! I'm so glad that I can choose to raise my children not to be tyrants!!! There, frustrations vented-- I feel better now.

You have my sympathy! We had a family over like that once. Key word there being ONCE! YEP. What you do is be very observant of people who are in church. If they are good at church, they will generally be good at your house too. You choose the best behaved kids and invite their family over.

Yes, I am the chorister-- well, today was the last day. It was such a fun calling!

I'm sorry about your house! Where were their parents while all of this was happening?
