So it all started yesterday evening. 10 yo ds fell asleep before dinner, and slept for about an hour or two (it was a long day with getting the cats spayed and neutered. Yes, they are doing fine today), so when we woke him up for dinner we started tall tales at the dinner table.
First we tried to convince him it was Saturday, and not Tuesday anymore. We did pretty good, and he went to check his iTouch for the date, but then we told him his iTouch was wrong, because he left too many apps running, and it messed up his battery, and the date and time were off. And then came the whopper… we told him it was 2014 instead of 2013!
He said, ‘then what happened to my birthday presents?!’ We told him since he was asleep we enjoyed them, but they broke so we had to throw them away. 😀 Then since he slept through Christmas we just gave all his presents to needy children. Then we told him about two of the biggest snow storms EVER that he missed! And how we won the lottery, and went on a bunch of awesome vacations, but he slept through them all, and we spent up all the money so we had to come home. LOL
So today I’m hearing snippets more of this tall tale as his brother and sister are still trying to convince him of all the things he’s slept through. But basically I just wanna say how much I LOVE having a dinner table, and getting to do fun things like this with the kiddo’s at lunch and in the evenings.
This morning we sat at the table and they all did drawings, and puzzles, while I chopped up enough vegies for a gallon of pickles, divided into four jars. Hope they last longer than last weeks cold packed pickles. Then I chopped up enough zucchini, and peppers, and apples, and other assorted vegis for the dehydrator. And then I found five oranges in the bottom drawer of the fridge, and decided to section those up also so they’ll get eaten for breakfast tomorrow! Then I froze all the spotted bananas, and put all of the dried dill weed we got at the farmers market last weekend into a jar! And that should keep us good on the produce til we get even more!
